One of my favorite places to eat in San Francisco is Boudin Cafe at Fisherman's Wharf. We all made a trip back to the city one of the days we were there to do several different things, and met back at Boudin's for lunch. Per their website, this place has emerged as San Francisco's oldest continuously running company. It opened in 1849.
It was chilly that day, or the entire week for that matter, so the delicious warm claim chowder was extra yummy in their famous sourdough bread bowls. I forgot to take a picture of my claim chowder bread bowl, or of all of us eating our lunch on the outside patio by the fireplace. I think I was too concerned about the crazy man feeding the Pigeons (wink wink to Kris) and lost track of my blogging opportunity. However, here is a peek at their famous bread.
Sourdough Bread, Sculpted Bread, Hearth Bread, Speciality Bread, can you smell the bread yet?
I love beautiful places, and this is one of them. While waiting on your food, or your family to finish eating, there is a gift shop to peruse. The Mister loves dipping his bread in seasoned dipping oil, so this station was intriguing to us.
We decided on these two bottles and this tray and dipping bowls, for bread and cheese, oil, olives, and to remember where we spent Thanksgiving 2010.
While all that was oh-so-lovely, the real eye-candy were these pretty girls
Baby took a quick nap inside the cafe where it was nice and warm
So go ahead and check out Boudin's the next time your in the bay, or in the city, or down at Fisherman's Wharf... and don't forget --- it is a social faux pas to feed the pigeons on the patio.
