Gift & Specialty Shop Shopping
Preparing what is now known as "Original San Francisco Sourdough French Bread," Isidore Boudin opened Boudin Bistro in 1849. The master baker developed the sourdough recipe by combining his family's French baking techniques with a Gold Rush miner's bread recipe. You can pick up a fresh loaf at the original store in the Richmond District on 10th Street or at Fisherman's Wharf. The wharf location features a demonstration bakery with a glass wall that gives you a view into the magic behind the bread. An interactive museum exhibit shares details about the bakery's past.

  • High prices but everything we ordered came out looking picture perfect. The only dish I'd say I wasn't impressed with were the sourdough tortilla tacos because the portions were so small. I would rather have regular tortillas and regular portions. Either way the food was good and there's free bread in the museum while you wait.
  • Boudin Bakery is where we take all our friends and relatives when we visit San Francisco. The energy inside is as refreshing as the delicious pastries, breads and soups. Thank you so much for opening a Boudin Bakery in Santa Rosa, California, across the street from the church in Montgomery Village. The best chocolate muffins. My mother can't eat sugar because she is a diabetic, but she skipped the doctor's advice when she tasted your delicious chocolate fudge chip muffin. She called me to tell me how delicious the baked good tasted.
  • Excellent dinner choice. Service was prompt, professional, and pleasant. Very attentive without hovering. Calm chowder and sourdough bread were Top 10 worthy. Crab & shrimp Flatbread was divine.
  • Fantastic venue, great location and amazing food. The staff were friendly and welcoming. A great place for a weary sightseer to rest their feet and enjoy a drink.
  • I like it, we just had drinks, and some BREAD. You can't not have some of the sourdough. So good. The staff is so friendly. Had a great time
