"In a class by itself" for "sumptuous, buttery" specialties "fresh out of the oven" , this famed Mission bakery produces "last meal requests" including "spectacular pastries" ( "especially the morning buns" ), "the perfect croissant" , "spot-on delicious" hot-pressed sandwiches and "unmatched" country bread that quickly sells out; the cafe section’s "totally overcrowded" , "the wait can be grueling" and the "staff could be friendlier" , but "you’ll be amply rewarded."

Yes, Tartine is good. It is even worth the five stars many people give it. And yes you should go. On a Tuesday. At 3 pm. But don’t go on a weekend, don’t go in the morning, don’t go at lunchtime, and don’t go any time of any day a hipster might conceivably want a scone, because you will literally wait in line for an hour of your life that you’re not ever getting back, and then at the end of the line...it’s just baked goods. It’s just flour and butter and sugar and salt and whatever else. Your life is more important. Also, yes things are large, but prices are correspondingly high. Why not go to nearby Arizmendi for something more manageable and also feel good for supporting a co op?

Latex free facility. We almost walked past Tartine even though we were looking for it! We were across the street and found it by address only. We walked here from the Mission Delores. Standing across the street, We said, “ That must be it!” No marquee or signs but there is a menu in the window, which the employee said is the idea. No need for signs, along with the cool weather, rain drizzled on the long line of people happily getting wet while waiting to get into the small corners bakery at around 5 pm. This was our last night in the city before heading back to the East Coast so we decided to eat dinner elsewhere in the Mission District and come back to Tartine for dessert. We got back shortly before closing and it was still busy but no waiting in line. They were sold out of most everything but the staff was very friendly and helpful. They willingly cut the cakes that were meant to be sold whole. We ordered slices of lemon meringue cake and passion fruit lime Bavarian. The thin watery caramel in lemon meringue cake lent a burnt flavor and sogginess to the otherwise perfect genoise and lemony layers and the meringue icing was lovely. The passion fruit lime Bavarian was just about the best thing I’ve ever tasted in my life. It was incredible!

I first heard about Tartine, and their ancient grains bread in a book Cooked, by Michael Pollan. So when I was in the area, I had to check out this amazing loaf. The bakery has a number of other traditional options, but on this journey I was on a specific mission. Luckily, I happened to arrive just as the breads were being sold, and waited in line for about 20 minutes to get it. You can order in advance over the phone it seems. Anyway the bread was warm, and so delicious.
