WHO WE ARE: We are The Original San Francisco Sourdough™. Today, we still bake our sourdough fresh every day using the same mother dough cultivated from a gold miner’s sourdough starter. We have extended our love of San Francisco and our place in its culinary history to offer a full range of the dining options—from specialty breads and casual breakfast, lunch and dinner—to a full-service dining experience at Fisherman’s Wharf.

HERITAGE: We are San Francisco’s oldest continuously operating business. Much has changed since our boomtown beginnings, but one thing hasn’t: our commitment to honor and preserve the art and science of The Original San Francisco Sourdough™.

THE ORIGINAL SAN FRANCISCO SOURDOUGH™: In 1849, Isidore Boudin struck gold with four simple ingredients: flour, water, salt, and mother dough. See how San Francisco’s history is baked into every bite.
