"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."

Tartine gets 5 stars for food quality and negative 5 stars for service. There is always a line out the door and down the block but watching the operations behind the counter you can see that half the problem is the total lack of urgency to keep the line moving. There is no strategy for taking orders and fulfilling quickly. They deal with each customer as if they are the only person around, rather than accepting that they are a high-volume bakery and organizing order-taking and line movement accordingly. The food, however, is amazing. The passion fruit coconut cake is a marvel. The eclairs are to die for. The sandwiches are creative and unique and delicious. It’s almost worth it.

Excellent cozy bakery with fresh baked goods and good coffee too. Try the morning bun, orange tea cake, any of the quiches and croissants. Great cakes too to serve for parties. Perfect spot for weekend breakfast or brunch! Cool location in Noe / the mission. Go early when it opens to avoid long lines.

The food here was amazing, I can't say the same about the service. The bad service we had really offset the amazing vibe this place creates. The server (Nicole) we had did not attempt to match the ambiance of the restaurant (the layout and atmosphere were amazing). No smiles or any bit of conversation came from her - was straight to the point of ordering and getting us out. She even had the audacity of dropping off the bill while we were still enjoying our meals without asking if we were done or if the bill was together or separate (table of 5). When we asked to seperate the bill, she proceeded to give us attitude. We even overheard her complaining to her co-workers about us. Overall, the place had good vibes. I would recommend this place but just hope you don't get the server we had. I work in this industry, visiting from Canada with friends and the hospitality we've received from other establishments have been top notch, this is the first negative experience.
