A delicious masterpiece in a great artisanal bakery, in front of Fisherman's Water and near Pier 39 in San Francisco. With an intersting bakery museum worth of a visit.

Chowder is very good. Definitely recommended. There isn’t much chowder though. The bread itself is quite big so would be better if they could increase the chowder volume. Ordered the mixed taco which comes with 1 x grilled fish and 1 x chicken. Both tastes like canned fish and chicken. Very small portion as well. Not worth the price.

Another iconic San Francisco tourist attraction. Plan to wait in line. They have a full menu of soups, sandwiches and salads. There's a big gift shop and a bakery to view. This is a big place with a busy vibe. If you don't have time to wait for a table, go elsewhere. Weekends are especially busy and crowded.

Bread tours, animal bread, great lunch, fun gift shop, divine treats! Try the amazing lemon bar, the bear claw, the almond croissant, the clam chowder and the chicken salad sandwich. Service isn't great, but it's passable. You can buy specialty chocolate and chukar cherries! So, so good--wish we could bottle the smells. The restroom outside is gross, so try to avoid it. The patio outside is pleasant and often you can hear live music. Love this place.

Every time somebody mentions clam chowder, this place comes to mind. I had a wonderful experience the first time I ate in this place. We traveled to Seattle and along the way ate chowder in places that serves the dish. Sad to say, it’s not the best anymore compared to others we tried.
