Boudin Bakery is best known for its sourdough bread. There are a number of Boudin Bakery locations around San Francisco, with this location at Fisherman's Wharf is the biggest. It includes a store, a restaurant, and a museum tour where you can see how their bread is made. Their sourdough bread is some of the best I've had and has a unique sour flavor.


Very casual


The downstairs cafe sells loaves of bread, sandwiches, soups, and breakfast items. You can order at the counter, and then sit at some of the seating out back or indoors. There is also a more substantial sit-down restaurant upstairs.

Items Ordered

Vegetable Scramble

Spinach, cheddar cheese, tomatoes

The vegetable scramble consists of scrambled eggs mixed with some vegetables. It is served in a bread bowl with a few potato wedges. The potato wedges were nicely seasoned, and the egg was OK too. The best part was the bread bowl - sourdough bread from Boudin is just fantastic and one of my favorite things to have in San Francisco.

The scrambles at Boudin Bakery are quite large. They cut the top out of the bread bowl, and serve it as toast along with the bowl (which is also toasted). The meal is large enough that I only had a couple bites of the bowl (after eating the egg) before getting full.
