Known for its bakeries since the sourdough bread of the gold rush era, San Francisco’s bakeries continue to innovate in the realm of croissants, apple strudels, cinnamon rolls, and all else flour-based.

Tartine Bakery

 Tartine BakerySan Francisco, United StatesThe best French bakery in the Mission, Tartine is famous for its scrumptious pastries. My favorites (because I can’t choose just one) the quiche and the bread pudding (pictured here). If you come on the weekend, get ready to wait in line for about an hour. It’s worth it.
