I had the burger on sourdough. The bread was a little hard for my liking, but guess that it is something you have to try when in San Francisco. The views were nice if you could get a table by the window.

The food breakfast , lunch and dinner are awesome. Prices are excellent and service is top. Lots of people waiting in lines. There is a bread museum and live view how to prepare and make bread.

Excellent sourdough bread but Acme is better. Cafe sandwiches very good as are the salads. Worth a visit to buy traditional SF sourdough bread

My husband and I had a quick lunch here. The place was very busy (which is to be expected because of its location). We didn't find service to be that great. My husband and I both ordered sandwiches....and they were okay (nothing exceptional). Considering cost, wait time, and service, we probably wouldn't visit this location again on our next trip...

We stayed in the Fishermans Wharf area and we stopped here almost everyday to grab a quick bite to eat for breakfast. They have the best croissant I've ever had. However their must try is the clam chowder in their signature sourdough bread bowl. The chowder itself isn't anything special but the bread bowl was amazing.

Nice looking place with many choices. Some of the help with outstanding and some of the help had bad attitude. Not sure if they are understaffed or not but it was extremely slow have a good flow between ordering and waiting for the food. Food was good. Will probably do better with table service

Nestled in the tourist trap of Fisherman's Wharf, you will actually find a nice and convenient place to grab a quality lunch at Boudin's Bakery & Cafe. If it's a warm day you can grab a sandwich or a nice salad. But if there's a bit of a chill in the air (like most days in San Francisco down by... More

We had to visit Boudin's Bakery & Cafe while exploring Fisherman's Wharf. Great shop - lots to look at. Decided to have lunch here - chowder in the sour dough bread bowl was very good. They have split bottles of wine for purchase with your lunch along with many other beverage choices. Sandwiches very good too.

We planned our visit to have breakfast here. The sourdough toast is hard to beat. The gift shop has so many unique things for foodies too!

This famous bakery/café is pretty big and very busy. Their sourdough bread is the best I have had. They also have a shop to buy other things(souveniers). I always come here and end up taking home a few loaves. Yo really have to try it
