Anniversary Eats: Tartine (San Francisco)

Kim and I celebrated six years of “marriage” 1 this weekend with a trip to our favorite city by the bay. Each of our four meals on the road was memorable, so I’m sharing.

I first heard of Tartine from Laura when we met up for Eat Retreat (recap), and I’ve since received no less than six recommendations from friends in and outside of the city. Kim and I missed out on our last trip, so we headed there for breakfast Sunday.

We weren’t alone; the line was out the door, and wrapped halfway up the block–we interpreted that as a sign that it was worth the drive. And 30 minutes later, we were getting close.

A little closer…

Once we hit the counter things went blurry. We resisted the temptation to buy everything in site, narrowing our selection to a chocolate croissant (pictured below), an almond rocher and the croque monsieur (pictured at top). Oh, and a chocolate hazelnut tart for a friend.

The croque monsieur was the standout for me, but Kim votes for the chocolate croissant.

Up next: Cotogna.


1 We asked a friend and missionary to marry us in front of our families, but due to a misunderstanding with the County of Fresno, he could only go through the motions. So we were married legally at the courthouse 11 days later.

    Those photos make me want to hop in the car and drive to Tartine right now. So good. I have their first cookbook, which includes the recipe for the lemon tart that Phil and I were raving about. I should lend it to you so Kim so can make them!
