Why locals recommend it
Millennials love to stand in lines. Go mid-morning on weekdays to avoid long lines. But, the food is well worth it! Riches beyond your wildest dreams: butter-golden pains au chocolat, cappuccinos with ferns drawn in dense foam and croque monsieurs turbo-loaded with ham, two kinds of cheese and béchamel. Don't be dismayed by the inevitable line out the door – it moves fast – but be aware that lolling in Dolores Park is the only possible post-Tartine activity.
Tips from locals
Ahhhh Tartine. . . One of the best bakeries in the US is just down the street from you. Giant croissants, elegant tarts, cakes, pies, seasonal bread pudding, and hot open-faced sandwiches served on huge slices of their signature bread. There’s no sign, but the line of people out the door marks the…

“When the weather is nice, you can barely see the grass due to the throngs of people lounging around.
