The bakery that launched a thousand imitators: Tartine has been churning out butter-heavy, truly perfect croissants and those widely copied morning buns for years. Lines down the sidewalk are just part of the daily experience.

It's a rare bakery that's so good, you feel nothing but gratitude after upwards of a half hour in line. My musts are the chocolate croissant, quiche, lemon tartlet, chocolate eclair and fromage blanc Bavarian.

Tartine is a must-visit when taking a trip to San Francisco. It's a super famous bakery and their fame is with good reason. The baked goods are beautiful, fresh and delicious, and their sandwiches make it a perfect place for lunch.

If you can tough through the line, the croissants are sublime. And the bread that hits the shelves at 5 pm each day is worth the wait.

They may be most well know for their Morning Bun, but don't forget all the other carb creations for the offering. Sandwiches are generous, so share one and leave room for extra dessert.

best lemon tart – They consistently make the best pies and our favorite is the lemon tart. Everything is fresh daily and at a fantastic level but I have often circled for 20 minutes just to find a parking space 6 blocks away! but it is worth it.

YUM – I stumbled upon this bakery whilst holidaying in San Fran and was in heaven. The range of gourmet sandwiches, pastries and desserts. The cinnamon scrolls here were divine. However the service was really poor and not the usual friendly US service found every where else.

burned croissant – I have been now to Tartine about 5 times. I am now hesitant to return. The almost $ 4 croissant with almond today was definitely burned and hard, the expensive croque monsieur really nothing special. Tartine is definitely overpriced and overall the experience not worth the money and time. I had very good morning buns there so I will go back to purchase them to go on occasion.

Delicious pastries, croque-monsieur, bread pudding – This is my favorite pastries place ever ... I recommend the bread pudding (I'm not a bread pudding person), croques and the almond croissant ....

Best Bakery in SF – This is a great brunch spot. I especially like the goat cheese sandwich, which is enough to feed two people.

What's this all about? – I've been to Tartine a few times and every time i go i want to try to understand what the fuss is all about. The long lines, the stuffy air inside, the idiotic method of serving customers by one person and then paying someone else, and of course last but not least the quality of their food. The tarts and cakes are way overpriced, and not half as delicious as they should be. In fact, I think it is one of the worst places for desserts. I have been to France many times, and this does not compare to the quality you get there in the least. Their Scharffenberg chocolate cake tasted of fish?!? Absolute waste of money or calories.

Delicious food, go early! – Finally got here early enough to find parking (9am) and walked 1 blk, lo & behold - no lines and an open table to boot. After purchasing a plain croissant (very crispy outside, flaky, moist inside), a chocolate croissant (it was ok), a cheese filled puff ball (delicious), a latte and regular coffee (free refills, self-serve), it came to a sticker shocking $16. A sm 4 in hazel nut tart costs $6. They have a sign stipulating that they've had to raise their prices by 30% in the past yr due to incurred costs. Can't see that regular folks in the neighborhood can afford to eat like this weekly, much less daily. Previous reviewers raved about the lemon curd bar. I thought it was way too tart & tasted as if made from bottled lemon juice. Should've listened to my spouse who told me not to buy it because my home made lemon bars taste better than this and I use fresh lemon juice. The cakes look delicious - coconut passion, chocolate, etc, in the display case. We bought 3 eclairs, a sm tart, lemon bar, 1 plain & 2 choc croissants to go & it came to $34 (that's almost $5 a piece). So, bring a lot of dough if you're paying by cash. The baked products are good, but prices are more reasonable at Noe Valley Bakery.

Not at all pretentious - marvelous lemon meringue cake – Visiting Tartine for the first time, one would expect this well-known bakery to be quite easy to find when passing by. However, this isn't the case. When you "find" Tartine, you feel as iff you have found a treasure. The line may be long (at times), but the counter staff is well trained and keeps the line going at a quick, but not at all rushed pace. If you see a line, don't let that frighten you. It is well worth the short wait. Tartine has the most beautiful lemon meringue cake I have ever experienced. The four layers of cake are are very moist and the lemon curd filling has just the right amount of tartness. The meringue work is a delicious and rustic piece of work; it is pertectly browned and not overly sweet or dry. Besides the cake, we also had a buttermilk scone and a mozzarella tappenade pressed sandwich. All of which where wonderful. As a professional baker, I highly recommend Tartine.

Great coffee shop – Everything is great except that it gets really busy sometimes. I guess you gotta do some work to get your treats.

Great neighborhood cafe and bakery – We went for a late breakfast on a weekday and the line was around the corner. The selection of choices is limited, but excellent. Best cappuchino I've had in a while. The Brioche Bread Pudding and their croissants are to die for. This place is very popular and it's not always easy to get a seat. It is certainly not good for large groups due to this constraint. The service is efficient but friendly. If you have a question, they will answer it unlike some other places in town.
