'Vive La Tarte' To Debut Second Location In The Ferry Building

Popular SoMa bakery Vive La Tarte—known for its fruit-stuffed seasonal croissants, smashed avocado toast, and salad bowls—is planning a second brick-and-mortar outpost. It will debut at the Ferry Building next January. 

The boulangerie opened its first brick-and-mortar location in 2015 (1160 Howard St. between Rausch and Sumner Streets), which began as a successful pop-up bakery that operated out of a vintage VW bus. The business is helmed by husband-and-wife team Arnaud Goethals and Julie Vandermeersch.

“We’re very excited to bring our craft to the wonderful people around the Ferry Building, and can’t wait to share our latest creations with San Francisco locals and visitors alike,” said Goethals in a statement.

The new Ferry Building spot will be replacing Dandelion Chocolate, which relocated within the space earlier this year. It will be joining other Bay Area notable eateries such as Slanted DoorHog Island Oyster Company, and Boulibar

The menu at the Ferry Building location will be similar to the SoMa location, but will be a streamlined version of the full bakery offerings usually on hand. 

Expect to see items like artisan sandwiches with house-made sourdough bread, a bircher muesli bowl with overnight oats, seasonal berries and compote, greek yogurt, and sliced almonds; as well as a smashed avocado toast with a poached egg, Achadinha feta, pickled tomatillo, cherry tomato, and sumac. 

There will be also be a new addition to the menu specific to the Ferry Building location as well, called the "Tacro," a croissant shell stuffed with savory fillings and served like a taco. 

Rounding the menu out are espresso drinks from Sightglass Coffee, coconut cold brew coffee, and turmeric lattes. To see what will be on offer, check out the bakery's SoMa menu here.

Vive La Tarte’s Ferry Building location will be open daily, 7am–7pm.
