I've been to that location three times and I enjoyed all my visits. I am glad that my old La Boulange favorite got rebooted as La Boulangerie de San Francisco.
The La Boulangerie de San Francisco in Noe Valley was the old location of the now defunct La Boulange bakery. The area is not only picturesque but this area also gets lots of sunshine. It is also closer to my neighborhood compared to the two other locations on the other side of town.
The smell of freshly baked goods welcome Mijo and I as soon as we got in the bakery. The interior is similar to the other locations. I love their usual wooden and glass shelves that display the breads and pastries.
If weather permits, the bakery has outdoor dining options. This part of the bakery gets the afternoon sunshine but not in the morning so wear layers if you are planning to seat outside in the morning.
Here are what Mijo and I ordered the first time we came here sometime in January. Open faced tuna sandwich and hazelnut croissant with coffee. We came here for a late lunch. We sat inside that time. Of course, the sandwich was delicious and fresh. The croissant was perfect.
The second time was during the week sometime in March for a quick breakfast before our drive up to Sonoma Country. We ordered a quiche and a croissant with coffee. The quiche was very tasty and surprisingly filling considering Mijo and I shared it.
My third time at this location was with my good friend Dinah. This was just recently. We came here for a Saturday brunch before going to see the photo exhibit by Annie Leibovitz in Crissy Field. We ordered a scramble, croissant and a lemon, strawberry and vanilla choux. We decided to seat outside to enjoy the Noe Valley morning air.
