After seeing the hippie subculture at Haight-Ashbury, the other travel bunnie and I were craving something homely to nom on. We hailed a cab and ended up at Tartine Bakery in the Mission District.
We got there at a good time, apparently this humble looking corner bakery is usually busy with foodies queueing outside to place their lunch time orders.
Known as the favourite bakery of Mark Bittman in the U.S., what's not to like about Tartine? We ordered a savoury sandwich with all the trimmings, a lush pastry and an extra large bowl of piping hot chocolate. This is a great place to stop in if you are in the area and locking for a guaranteed heart (and tummy) warmer.
