I do not recall the Starbucks backstory that went with this place, but no matter, check them out. The food is delicious and they have no shortage of unique offerings with both sandwiches, food, and treats in the case to be served warm or cold. I had a beef and horseradish something or another, and the GF had a dessert... More

While I prefer artier pastries, this is a solid place to get something for breakfast or a snack when time is short.

This place is clearly a hot spot and for good reason. The food was fantastic and the breakfast was very proportionate. Fantastic food.

Definitely recommended to go there for a nice lunch! I went there for a take away salad. The waiter was very nice and friendly, the food is freshly made infront of your eyes, and its definitely worth the money. I really enjoyed it. The restaurant itself is nice to stay for a coffee too.

Busy week, long lines everywhere so glad we decided to stand in this one. The breakfast was great and the service was good, especially for as busy as things were. I just wish that we had discovered this place earlier in the week!

GREAT breakfast find - not just bakery items but egg dishes as well. Since the nearby Marriott Marquis does not offer menu-driven breakfast any longer - this is a cheaper (and much better) alternative.

Excellent bakery and decent coffee and salads. Next to Yerba Buena Gardens offers outside small tables in the shade. Clean, fast, efficient and not over priced. A place to come back when you are in "The Culture" ...

I am not into copious breakfast. Some milk, a butter croissant and a tea will do. So why pay more than 20 dollar in your hotel, while you get the same for about 7 dollar in La Boulange? Their butter croissant is far much better than the one I had in the hotel. However, compared to the 'croissant au beurre'... More

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.
