They hit the spot with the chowder and bread bowls. I got the corn and crab chowder and my boyfriend got the traditional clan chowder, both were great. The service was also very good.

This popular bakery is a S F favorite. Breads are wonderful. Food is served. My favorite is the broccoli and cheese soup in a bread bowl. Chicken salad sandwich is nicely prepared.

This place is always good !! We have been here many times and could eat their baked goods everyday if diet allowed! We have had mostly breakfast there but soups in bread bowl are delicious. A must have while in the Pier area.
