We had a lovely dinner at Boudin at the Wharf. Sitting close by the bakery itself, we were able to watch the bakers in action, crafting the amazing sourdough that the bakery is known for. We ate from the Bakers Hall Cafe, and all found...More

I am not sure what we we’re thinking. Boudin at the wharf has a stellar reputation as a fine eating establishment but it’s a tourist trap first and foremost. We just wanted a place to grab some refreshments before moving on. The lines were long...More

Seafood chowder in a sourdough bowl screams 'Tourist' in San Francisco, but sometimes you've just got to admit what you are - and there's no better place than Boudin. Hearty and tasty, it'll definitely sustain you through sightseeing. The Halloween breads also looked amazing!

The Original San Francisco Sourdough made fresh everyday. This beautiful building is the place to see the bakers at work. I went there twice in my 2 days stay near the Embarcadero, San Francisco. Their Almond Croissant is my personal favorite.

This place is an experience in itself. You HAVE to go see it and get some BreadBowl Clam Chowder! 👍🏽 There’s a lot to see here, and the fun and lovely staff are super helpful as well.
