This is clearly not tourist season, or at least off peak for time of day. Wandered in about 6pm and was promptly greeted and had order taken. Super fast delivery of food too. Bread bowl of clam chowder is hard to beat and reasonably priced for the tourist setting. A must-have when along fisherman’s wharf in San Francisco. GooglePlace - December 2017

It's good there is not one near my house because I would be there every day. The bread is so delicious, my husband and i had just that for lunch today. The smell hits you as you walk in and it gets better from there. We bought bread shaped like a Christmas tree from the store and the tree part pulls apart in perfect little rolls. I also had a bread bowl of Clam chowder last night for dinner and it was delicious too. GooglePlace - December 2017

The grilled cheese and chowder in a bread bowl were absolutely delicious! The sourdough is really good. The ambiance at this location is wonderful, seeing all the different loaves and shapes they make. They have a different shape for every month, including alligators, turkeys, crabs, and grapes. Also, you can watch and smell them bake the bread, which is delightful. GooglePlace - December 2017

I really loved this place. The bread animals we bought were so cute. They gave us a tour of the place, and it was amazing. I love the history behind the Boudin sourdough tradition. They have a nice seating selection (inside and out) for us to enjoy. They also have a nice lunch selection (with alcohol should you choose) and a gift shop area as well. It's really an amazing place to eat and relax. GooglePlace - November 2017

Great place to watch how sourdough bread is made and taste. Has both indoor and outdoor seating. You must try the clam chowder in the sourdough bread bowl. The sourdough bread here is chewy with a crunchy, crusty crust. Always busy. You will have to wait in line to order and wait to pick up downstairs (full service restaurant is upstairs). Service is fast and you will get your meal quick. You can also just buy bread. There is a Peet's Coffee within the cafe downstairs if you need your caffeine fix. There is a self-guided Boudin museum tour if you are interested about the whole sourdough bread making process and the company's rich San Francisco history. GooglePlace - November 2017
