We (family of 4) visited the main bakery on Jefferson Street (Fisherman's Wharf) twice - once for lunch and once for dinner. It was VERY BUSY at lunch time and a bit overwhelming the first time (which queue to join?!) but once we got that sorted, the line moved quickly and our food was ready to collect in no time... More

I love sour dough and had a quick egg sandwich and coffee from here. Was very good. Staff could have been friendlier though..

My husband and I took the clam chowder and chili soup in the bread bowl and it was really tasty! We mostly enjoyed the chili soup! The bread was a bit too sour in our opinion...

I had a lemon and poppy seed muffin and a cookie as I got there twice. The muffin is really good for 2.29 and the toffee cookie is also great for 2.19. The building is rather dark and you don't feel so confortable in this place. Service is rather cold too.

Loved Boudin at Fisherman's Wharf. Great food, drinks, atmosphere and BREAD, oh the bread! Must stop in. The staff was lovely and charming and the store items were adorable and chic.

If you like chewy sourdough bread this is the place. Not much other choices of pastries, a few cookies.I was expecting a variety of other items, but the place was busy anyway.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
