Tartine Bakery is one of the best bakeries in San Francisco and for years has operated out of a small, crowded store in the Mission. Now they have opened a much larger, beautiful new space called Tartine Manufactory about 12 blocks east from the original Tartine. Manufactory combines a bakery, restaurant, coffee shop, and a soon-to-open ice cream counter. Compared to the original Tartine, Manufactory has expanded breakfast and lunch options, as well as different pastries and breads. Tartine bread really is special. Bread at the old Tartine was available once a day after 430 PM, and now at Tartine Manufactory it is baked three times per day. When I went on a Friday morning, they told me the first bread availability was 1030 AM, and chef-owner Chad Robertson himself was manning the enormous oven, a centerpiece of the new space. Tartine Manufactory is in a building that also has a Blue Bottle Coffee and also houses the Heath Ceramics factory and store. The Heath Ceramics store showcases some of beautiful (and expensive) dinnerware, tile and curated home goods. This is a really amazing space and a definite new SF culinary landmark.
