Elisabeth Prueitt and Chad Robertson opened Tartine Bakery in 2002 in San Francisco’s Mission District. The two met while attending the Culinary Institute of America (they were seated alphabetically) and together developed their love of baking. Over 17 years later they continue to make their coveted morning buns and country loaves - and also continue to push the boundaries around sustainability, ingredient sourcing and improving the artisanal process through innovation. Together they have published 5 award-winning books with 2 more in production.
In 2015, Tartine partnered with coffee veteran Chris Jordan to build Coffee Manufactory, a sister brand that would source and roast coffee mirroring the same sustainability principles of Tartine. In 2016, Tartine Manufactory SF opened its doors and in 2018 Tartine launched its first international location in Seoul, Korea and expanded to Southern California opening The Manufactory Los Angeles. We are poised for growth, but ensuring we are doing so at a human scale - continuing to invest in our partners, our people and our supply chain.
Chad and Elisabeth are multi-time James Beard Award Winners and Nominees for their work at Tartine Bakery as well as their cookbooks.
Tartine Manufactory named one of America’s 50 Best New Restaurants in 2017
Coffee Manufactory named “Best Coffee” in Food & Wine in 2019
TARTINE strives to make everything as simple and as authentic as possible.
We consider components of flavor and seasonality in making our authentic pastry, cookies, tarts, cakes, confections, and bread. Pastries are baked in small batches to ensure the freshest items are enjoyed by our customers. Morning pastries leave the oven mere moments before we open our doors for the day. Throughout the morning pastries are in constant motion; being formed, proofing, and baking at the same time next day dough is being mixed. The care and consideration we put into our food is mirrored in each facet of our operation – safety and sanitary practices, punctuality, empathy and communication with each other, our guests, our vendors, and our community – local, national and international.

Pastry chef Elisabeth M. Prueitt and her husband renowned baker, Chad Robertson, are the co-owners of Tartine Bakery. They both trained in the Culinary Arts at the baking and pastry schools of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. Elisabeth and Chad traveled, trained, and cooked in France and upon their return, opened Bay Village Bakery in Point Reyes Station, California, where they baked bread in a wood-fire brick oven and created rustically elegant pastry using many techniques they learned abroad. Chad’s bread garnered that attention of Alain Ducasse, who wrote about the couple in his book, Harvesting Excellence. They then relocated Bay Village Bakery to Mill Valley, where Elisabeth’s pastry and professional reputation caught the attention of local food lovers who recognized the integrity of fresh, often organic ingredients and the attention to detail in her desserts. Tartine Bakery opened in June of 2002, and has been rated in the Zagat Survey as Best Bakery and Best Breakfast in San Francisco. Elisabeth and Chad were nominees for the 2006 James Beard Outstanding Pastry Chefs, National Award and won in 2008.
