Enjoyed delicious sandwich for lunch. Sat on patio (could have been better kept, misc trash). Found later could have eaten upstairs at their very nice restaurant :(.. view of Bay from there was beautiful. Also on 2nd floor is mini museum re history of Boudin...More

We stopped by Boudin for breakfast. It's a great spot with amazing bakery and sweet options. It's right down on the pier making it ideal to stop by before heading on an early trip to Alcatraz.

We wanted to have good sourdough bread and of course came here. The grilled cheese sandwiches were delicious on Parmesan crusted sourdough. Yummy!!

Great place to dine when at the San Francisco Airport. Very popular, but the line moves quickly. Many choices, something for everyone!

My husband and I were in San Francisco for only 3 days and we ate at Boudin's restaurant upstairs twice in 2 days. The menu choices are outstanding and the food is delicious.

Freshly made bread. My son and husband loved the soup bowl. I sampled a couple dishes, they were all excellent.

Boudin's is not a cheap lunch place, but the food is good and the service is usually excellent - until this time. Our server was abrupt, curt and not accommodating. The food was decent, but the surly server ruined the mood.

Nice comfortable place to eat. Has oyster bar and regular bar plus large dining area with views of fisherman's wharf. Food was good, service a bit slow but good. Good selection of pasta and seafood

We could smell the aroma of freshly baked bread as soon as we parked the car in San Francisco. We headed straight to Boudin's for lunch. Crab cake sandwich was just okay, but chill in the bread bowl was hearty and delicious. Long lines, but...More

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
