A favorite spot: Tartine Bakery.

Gotta look for this place….between the Mission District and The Castro. It’s a small place so be prepared to wait…to order and find a seat…but it’s well worth the wait.

Our visit was for breakfast. My choice was the croque monsieur which arrived with a twist…..opened faced as a tartine and not the classic sandwich. It was outrageously good and the fermented carrots, as a side, really made the dish.

The space is well worn but comfortable.
