Follow your nose to this busy bakery, where fresh-baked loaves of organic olive bread and walnut levain will have you eating your gluten quota for the year in a single sitting, right out of the bag. Get an epi loaf for sure--and try not to eat every single bread 'leaf' before you've even left the building.
Best SF made bread – I love Acme's herb slab bread. It is really flavorful and delicious. The acme bread is reasonably priced and always fresh. It's worth the trip to the Ferry Building to get some of their great varieties.
Yummy, crusty, immorally tasty bread. – This bread is fantastic, despite the lines that form outside to buy it and the hassle of having to know what you want by the time you get to the front of the line. (The signs are all on the racks and the pressure to decide is immense. Of course, some discourteous people don't care and take 10 minutes in the front of the line to choose their breads).
The walnut cranberry loaf and sourdough rye are out of this world, crusty, chewy, full of expensive ingredients and a great value. Excellent for toasting. The cinnamon buns are immoral, all gaping and running gooey tangy juice from their deep, heady folds, studded by plump bumpy raisiny goodness.
Since I travel from out of town to get this, I buy this bread by the dozens of loaves and bring it home to freeze it. MMMMMmmm.
Best Ciabatta – Better than SemiFreddi which is pretty good. Way better than Grace or any other Ciabatta. I get mine at Whole Foods and keep it in the wrapper inside a loose plastic grocery bag so it keeps fresh for a couple days. Wish they carried it at Safeway or Albertsons.
Best bread around – Lucky for us bay area folks, we have Acme Bread-- you can get it at the ferry building or at some markets all around the bay area. Crusty artisan breads are reliably moist on the inside and hard and crusty on the outside. Buy the bread the same day you'll eat it, because it does dry out quickly (as all good bread does). I LOVE their olive bread and my husband (who doesn't like green olives) loves their rosemary/potato bread. Fantastic rosemary foccacia also.
Delicious fresh bread! – Acme bread is always fresh and tasty, and is much more authentic than you can find anywhere else! Great for sandwiches or a side with dinner. I am a huge fab of the herb slab - slice, pop in the oven for a few minutes, and enjoy the warm and airy bread! The location at the Ferry Building is also fun and busy, in a central location at the Embarcadero bustling with activity, and always with new sights to see. Make sure to go for the Thursday farmers' market to really take advantage of the area.
The renowned Berkeley bakery brings its artisanal loaves to the Ferry Building. – The Scene
The first San Francisco outpost of this premier bakery stocks its shelves with the same rustic breads and French-style pastries as the Berkeley original. Peer behind the marble counter for a glimpse of the bay through floor-to-ceiling windows, while instructive staff helps you. Weekdays aren't busy, but during Saturday's farmers' market, a long line of devotees wait patiently for their daily bread.
Baker Steve Sullivan cut his chops at Chez Panisse, and since he opened his bakery in 1983, it has become a symbol of the artisanal-bread revolution. Acme is well-known for rough-hewn breads, which are baked fresh on-site daily. Huge, crusty, round loaves of signature pain au levain vie for space with sweet baguettes, airy challah and New York rye bread. Pastries are also lovely, such as flaky croissants and gooey cinnamon rolls. During the holidays, seasonal specialties include pumpkin bread, panettone and cranberry bread studded with walnuts.
Best Bread In Town – If you are a fan of fresh bread then this is the place for you. They have a great variety and the staff is very knowledgable about breads. The olive loaf is heaven. The location is perfect. I never thought I could excited about a bread store.
Authentic french bread! – Hands down, this place has some of the best, most authentic bread and pastries in the Bay area! The baguettes are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside...just like in France! The chocolate croissants are also wonderful! Don't miss this place when you're puruseing the farmers market.
