Tartine Bakery Restaurant Review

: This corner bakery's two wall-size windows make for lots of natural light, an airy atmosphere, and good people-watching (assuming you can find a place to sit). More a destination than a place to linger, be prepared to stand in line while the decadent smells of Tartine waft over you. You'll undoubtedly end up purchasing more than you came for (crusty bread, bread puddings stuffed with berries and stone fruit, and huge hunks of quiche). We like it all: flaky croissants, a sweet-and-tangy lemon cream tart, and rich pain au chocolat. The bakery's signature bread is used to create a few varieties of sandwiches, such as the pork-laden Cubano topped with ribbons of pickled red onions, or creamy fromage blanc with juicy tomatoes and a melted slice of Gruyère. Bread enthusiasts arrive early on weekend mornings to stake out spots in the rapidly growing line.
