TARTINE Story:

After becoming a favorite of Alice Waters at the Berkeley Farmers’ Market in the late 1990s, pastry chef Elisabeth Prueitt and her husband, renowned baker Chad Robertson, officially moved into San Francisco to open their wildly successful Bakery in June 2002.  Over 15 years later, you can still find the same line out the door and down Guerrero St. Elisabeth and Chad were jointly named Best Pastry Chef in America by the James Beard Foundation in 2008, and are both best-selling authors.

In 2016, Chad and Elisabeth opened the acclaimed restaurant and production space, Tartine Manufactory, also in the Mission District of San Francisco. Additionally, they have partnered with Chris Jordan, former CEO of Verve Coffee, to launch Coffee Manufactory and now source and roast their own coffee. In 2018 the Tartine footprint became international, expanding to South Korea with two new outposts in Seoul.

We have expanded to Los Angeles at The Row DTLA and partnered with acclaimed chef and pizzaiolo, Chris Bianco of Phoenix’s Pizzeria Bianco to open The Manufactory.  The project occupies nearly 40,000 square feet and includes an all-day cafe, a bakery, a market, a dinner-only restaurant, a coffee lab and roastery.

TARTINE Philosophy:

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 day’s dough is being mixed. Pastries are baked in small batches to ensure the freshest items are enjoyed by our customers. The care and 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.
