Elisabeth Prueitt and Chad Robertson opened Tartine Bakery in 2002 in San Francisco’s Mission District. The two met while attending the Culinary Institute of America (they were seated alphabetically) and together developed their love of baking. Over 17 years later they continue to make their coveted morning buns and country loaves - and also continue to push the boundaries around sustainability, ingredient sourcing and improving the artisanal process through innovation. Together they have published 5 award-winning books with 2 more in production.
In 2015, Tartine partnered with coffee veteran Chris Jordan to build Coffee Manufactory, a sister brand that would source and roast coffee mirroring the same sustainability principles of Tartine. In 2016, Tartine Manufactory SF opened its doors and in 2018 Tartine launched its first international location in Seoul, Korea and expanded to Southern California opening The Manufactory Los Angeles. We are poised for growth, but ensuring we are doing so at a human scale - continuing to invest in our partners, our people and our supply chain.
Chad and Elisabeth are multi-time James Beard Award Winners and Nominees for their work at Tartine Bakery as well as their cookbooks.

Tartine strives to make everything as simple and authentic as possible. Components of flavor and seasonality are considered in making our authentic pastry, cookies, tarts, cakes, confections and bread. Morning pastries don’t start coming out of the oven until soon after we open our doors for the day. Throughout the morning breakfast pastries are in constant motion: some are being formed, some are proofing, and some are baking; and at the same time the next days dough is being mixed. Pastries are baked in small batches to ensure the freshest items are enjoyed by our customers. The care are consideration we make in our food is also reflected in every facet of our operation – safety and sanitary practices, punctuality, empathy and communication with each other, with our guests, with our vendors and with our community – local, national and international.

In 2002, power baking duo Elisabeth Prueitt and Chad Robertson came into San Francisco for dinner from Point Reyes, where they had a tiny bakery at their home called Bay Village Bakery. While in the city, Liz saw an old corner bakery in the dark. There was a baker sitting outside and they started talking. He was ready to retire but determined to keep the shop a bakery. It was meant to be. A few months later, Tartine opened its doors, and the line outside formed.
Tartine Bakery has been rated in the Zagat Survey as Best Bakery and Best Breakfast in San Francisco. Elisabeth and Chad were nominees for the 2006 James Beard Outstanding Pastry Chefs, National Award and won in 2008.
After years of success with the bakery, Prueitt and Robertson started planning the Manufactory in 2014 and opened Tartine Manufactory in August 2016. By November, the restaurant won its first Eater award for best expansion and in 2017 was named by Bon Appetit as one of the top new restaurants of the year.
In early 2016, Chris Jordan and Bill Chait joined the leadership team and together with Liz and Chad are preparing Tartine for future projects in LA, Asia and beyond.
