Tartine

600 Guerrero St. (and 18th St.)
(415) 487-2600

[French] Bakery/Dessert place in the Mission

One of my favorite places in SF. What I love about this place is the atmosphere -- it's so comfortable. It's the type of place where you can spend an hour or two just reading by yourself. The quality of the desserts is very good, as is the food (try the sandwiches). The only thing this place lacks is originality/innovation in their menu (although that's not what they're going for, anyway).

*** UPDATE ***

I've never tried their loaves of bread before, but I finally did last week. Here's a sourdough with dates & hazelnuts... the crust was very caramelized which I'm personally not a fan of, but the bread was fluffy and the flavors subtle.

I went to Tartine this morning. Highlights were the ham and cheese croissant and the morning bun. A solid four-star establishment.
