Quick lunch stop on Pier 39. First trip for some in the family so we had to do the bread bowls. Anything less would not have been Pier 39! And if you are going to have bread bowls, you should really have them at Boudin!

For sourdough on the waterfront, this is THE place. While first impressions are a little touristy, we really enjoyed the self-guided tour of the bakery museum and I was mesmerized watching the bread being made, formed, and shaped. Topping the visit off with a chowder bread bowl, this was a highlight of our visit to SF.

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.
