La Boulange Opens in Inner Sunset Thursday


This morning my partner in crime and I headed to the Inner Sunset for the soft opening of La Boulange. The local chain, recently purchased by Starbucks, is opening their latest outpost this week, so they invited the neighborhood to come by today and sample some of their delicious breakfast and lunch treats.


When we arrived there was a steady line which which moved quickly, but still offered enough time to peruse their menu while you waited. Despite running across their locations on a regular basis I have only been in a La Boulange just once before, so I was really excited to check out their specialties.

Obviously pastries are one of their strong suits and the case right by the front door tempts you as soon as you walk in. I selected a hazelnut chocolate croissant, and since they were encouraging everyone to try multiple items I grabbed a couple of macarons for my husband as well.


The kitchen was incredibly busy since the place was packed – this is one of their largest locations in the area. Rather than wait for breakfast I grabbed a tuna sandwich to go, along with a latte.


The size makes it perfect for strollers and one of the managers shared that they welcome parents groups and kids to come in anytime! She even asked if they should get more than two high chairs. I said definitely!


Stop in for the official grand opening this Thursday-their will be specials and give aways all day!
