A few months ago, I booked a weekend getaway to San Francisco in the dead of night. I’m very much a planner by nature, especially when it comes to travels, but a bout of insomnia and a too-good-to-be-true airline sale had me feeling spontaneous. Bay Area, here we come!
Following a BART ride from the airport to the hotel—a transportation treat for suburban dwellers—The Astronomer, June, and I jetted to The Mission for an early lunch at Tartine Manufactory.
Elisabeth Prueitt and Chad Robertson of Tartine Bakery fame opened the 5,000-square-foot Manufactory late last summer. The expansive space houses a restaurant, coffee bar, bakery, and ice cream shop.
We were lucky enough to get a table without a wait. Granted, it was the sunniest table in the dining room, and we were squinting and sweating the entire meal, but we’ll take what we can get.
