If you know anything about food culture, you’ll know that lines for any type of bites in the Bay Area are the common hate toward those who stand in and out of it. But if the food is extremely delish, why not indulge right? Make a friend or two and be patient because these lines are well worth it.
Tartine Bakery // 600 Guerrero St
The forefathers of lines, Tartine Bakery has accepted the fact that their lines are out of control but also bring the brightest people from miles around. Baked with only organic ingredients, this hot spot bakery provides the makings for breakfast pastries, hot pressed sandwiches + an array of coffee. If you can make it to the front without giving up, snagging a classic cinnamon roll is an ample reward for your patience. // Line Wait: 9-11 Minutes
Mr. Holmes Bakehouse // 1042 Larkin St
If the phrase “I got baked in San Francisco” doesn’t ring a bell, let us refresh your memory. Possibly the longest line in downtown San Francisco, Mr. Holmes has pioneered the infusion and crossbreeding of all baked goods. I mean, a Cruffin? Yes, we mean it. If you’re willing to wait in line, go ahead and bring friends because the photo op inside is literally to die for. Also, while we’re on the subject of Cruffin, go ahead and get a dozen. Might as well for the wait that ensues. // Line Wait: 10-15 Minutes
