Friendly service. Really good quality bread and omelettes. Great coffee and you can sit outside and watch people walk by. Clean inside and out too. Great place for quick breakfast.

Stopped here late morning for a pastry. Ended up getting a chocolate croissant and a roast beef sandwich on, what I think was, a soft baguette with jack cheese. I was really happy as both were really good. Fresh and tasty. It is counter service with seats available inside to enjoy your pastries. They have coffee, tea, and bottled drinks... More

I was so disappointed to go toone of my favorite breakfast places in San Francisco only to find out they've changed - and not for the better! They used to have yogurt with fresh berries and house made granola, now it comes in pre-made cups. My latte was luke warm at best and when i asked if they could heat... More

We have been staying in an apartment around the corner and I've been getting my morning latte from La Boulange. It beats Starbucks or the illy cafe. The baguette and pastries are also delicious. The baguette is as good as anything in Paris

The croissants are great but its not as cheap as promised. The price is regular and the eggs are not so good. The staff is friendly but there are definetly better places for breakfast!

A great place to eat if you love the arrogance and rudeness that normally is only found with Paris waiters. The food is good though, albeit overpriced.

Stopped here for lunch. Terrible service and wrong ingredients in order. Serving staff are not interested. Poor quality food. La boulange de Hayes is a world apart from this place. Could be great.

Staying in Marina District

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.
