In general, I was not as blown away by the San Francisco restaurants as I expected to be, but I can usually turn turn my eating woes around with a trip to a good bakery. Tartine is one of those few amazing bakeries that is known more for savory blends of flavors than a child's birthday cake.
The Atmosphere: Sophisticated but cozy. As you enter, you are comforted by rustic French pastries and dark wooden surfaces. You feel as though you are entering a Nancy Meyers film.
The Food: There is a long glass case of tarts, eclairs and other dessert pastries but the real genius is in the savory baked goods. Pay special attention to the gougères, quiches, and Croque Monsieurs
