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.
