Nice looking place with many choices. Some of the help with outstanding and some of the help had bad attitude. Not sure if they are understaffed or not but it was extremely slow have a good flow between ordering and waiting for the food. Food was good. Will probably do better with table service

Nestled in the tourist trap of Fisherman's Wharf, you will actually find a nice and convenient place to grab a quality lunch at Boudin's Bakery & Cafe. If it's a warm day you can grab a sandwich or a nice salad. But if there's a bit of a chill in the air (like most days in San Francisco down by... More

We had to visit Boudin's Bakery & Cafe while exploring Fisherman's Wharf. Great shop - lots to look at. Decided to have lunch here - chowder in the sour dough bread bowl was very good. They have split bottles of wine for purchase with your lunch along with many other beverage choices. Sandwiches very good too.

We planned our visit to have breakfast here. The sourdough toast is hard to beat. The gift shop has so many unique things for foodies too!

This famous bakery/café is pretty big and very busy. Their sourdough bread is the best I have had. They also have a shop to buy other things(souveniers). I always come here and end up taking home a few loaves. Yo really have to try it

I ordered a breakfast sandwich; it was amazing. My friend enjoyed crab benedict. It was also very good. The coffee on the side where food is ordered was awful - burnt. Order directly from the coffee shop.

Ok, I admit it - I ate an entire (small) loaf of sourdough bread. We stopped in here for coffee and were going to tour the bakery, but the guys didn't want to. Best sourdough bread in the city.

I have always loved the Boudin Sourdough bread. I was in SF on business and decided to check out the cafe for lunch. I had a delicious sandwich with a lovely salad. It was a good value. Also picked up a can of their clam chowder. My husband just ate it back here at home and loved it - even... More

Man does not live on bread alone! But the bread here is out of this world!' Make sure to ask for butter to ho so you can "sample" done on the way home!
