Blue Bottle and Tartine Bakery call off merger


#1

The Tartine / Blue Bottle marriage is not happening apparently… I wonder who’s running away.


#2

I’d really like Tartine to not worry about expanding to Los Angeles, New York and Tokyo, and instead worry about expandng to beyond 18th Street of San Francisco.


#3

Yeah, I wish they’d expand to the East Bay!

I’d be happy with functional counter service at the current location. I live within walking distance and never go; it’s not worth the hassle.


#5

huh, I’ve never really had a problem there. Actually find them fairly efficient considering how crazy busy it is.


#6

You have to reserve the bread to skip the tourist line though. Can’t just drop in impromptu and grab a loaf given the line is usually long and it moves rather slowly.

On a weekday evening, the line is is not very long AND most of the stuff is still available. I typically go around 5:30 pm to pick up bread and pastries and have not had a long wait (most of the times).
