Located in metro point shopping centre Situated between Nordstrom and Marshells. After a welcome we were quickly ushered to a suitable table and found a menu. Although orders were placed and taken at the counter I was fortunate that I had a less mobility challenged career. As I am not sure how easy it would have been to queue to... More

With a seasonal menu that varies and the great standards always available, you can always find that meal that you will love. Soups, salads, hot or cold sandwiches, everything is great.

Have lunch here whenever I am at South Coast Plaza. Good menu but the Clam Chowder is always outstanding. Reasonably priced.

Fun day meeting friends for lunch. Soup and sandwich always the favorite with our group. Coffee and a treat tops it off.

This restaurant has two doors one of which is for the exit and the other is for the entrance where you order your food. We had a vegetarian sandwich and a bowl of soup which were both shared. The sandwich came with salad as a choice rather than with potato chips. It tasted very good and looked very presentable. The... More

The first time we had Boudin was in San Francisco and we loved it! The quality of the clam chowder is the same as in San Francisco! Our family loves clam chowder and sourdough bread, so this is a match in heaven! The cafe is clean and the staff is very friendly. Would recommend for anyone who wants clam chowder... More

Had the chicken, apple walnut salad in a bread bowl. I was so full I could only eat half if it. I should have shared a serving! The sourdough was yummy and worth the $10+ to be that satisfied! Next time I will try the soup instead of salad. I had so much I got tired of chewing lettuce.

This place has great sourdough bread, and good everything else! Their soup or chili in a sourdough bread bowl is especially good, as are their Caesar salads with sourdough croutons. My only caveat would be to stay away if you have canker sores or just had dental surgery -- this place requires serious chewing action!

They have very good sandwiches at Boudin, but my wife loves their cookies. Her favorite is the peanut butter. I like their oatmeal raisin. Good place for lunch. You do have to order at the counter.
