Good Food, Great Location

Boudin has good food, but a very limited menu. The location is excellent though and it's fun to shop around the store and look at all the bread in different shapes!

I've been to several Boudins now, and this one is nice for us tourists bc there's a small shop to buy Boudin bread and stuff. But the service is a bit slow, especially during evening dinner hours. When i was there earlier this evening, there was 1 girl taking orders. When a customer was being picky about her order, the... More

Got a coffee and then wanted to use washroom. Was told to go outside and go to round building across parking lot. How can they have no washrooms in their building? Other bathroom disgusting.

I passed by this place by coincidence. I liked the menu and the cashier recommended their signature soup .. Clam Chowder inside a bowl of bread. They even sell the same to-go and in canes. The cheese Sandwich is OK ... Desert was delicious too. Must visit if u r in town. I found the can in the airport too.... More

We visited some high ranked (tried to) restaurants in this area but too many people lined up for breakfast .. We got here caught by the name 'bakery' and OMG it is a 'taste ride'. A variety of all kind of flavors and textures. Difficult to choose from. It does not 'only look' great, it tastes like that as well.... More

Every visitor should come here and try their stuff. The way its crafteed is superb. Must must try is the tomato soup which they serve you in a big bread. Even the sandwiches and Pizzas were very delicious

You can stand outside what hint the bakers making all sorts of soda dough bread shapes. There is also an inside bra seri when you can get all sorts of food and drinks and also a shop to buy their goods.

We enjoyed lunch at Boudin and sat outside and listened and watched the goings on. The blood mary was excellent and the bread was fantastic. The food was good and served fairly quickly. We did not take the tour but enjoyed peeking into the glass walled bakery.
