Their sourdough was good, but too hard. Tasty bread, but can be mistaken for being stale because it is tough and hard.

This bread is legit! I hate myself for loving a great baguette or any bread for that matter but Acme bread is just perfect. I had a few different kinds during my weekend visit to SF and paired them with little hunks of cheese from Cowgirl next door. My friend and I would munch down on our gluttonous snacks in... More

My family loves bread so when we saw Acme Bread Co. at the Ferry Marketplace we knew we had to try it. It was 9:00am on. Thursday so there was a breakfast rush and as we waited in line we tried to decide which of the many bread options we would choose. In the end we decided on a cinnamon... More

What an amazing gem for those of you who like European style hard crust breads! The prices a reasonable, the selection is amazing, and the flavors are wonderful.

We bought a loaf of Cranberry Walnut and a Wheat bread and a variety of smaller rolls. One of the best bakeries we have ever found. And I could not believe the unbelievably reasonable prices for the touristy location. I would be here every week if we lived nearby, and I envy those who do. Hope to make one more... More

This is not really a restaurant it is a bakery, but with it's location in the Ferry Building it is easy to select some breakfast rolls, grab a coffee and sit on a bench behind the building looking over the bay. It doesn't matter if you want a loaf of bread or some breakfast rolls this is a must stop... More

Breads were delicious, pain au chocolat wasn't. Prices were very fair and the breads were delicious. Rustic and Sourdough rounds were great. The pain au chocolat was very dry, chocolate was bitter and sparse. A sweet loaf traveled very well on the plane coming home. Beware, cash only!

Had a 6 night stay in SF. On the days our breaky was not provided by the hotel, our routine was to stop here for flaky pain du chocolate, croissants, apple turnovers. Delicious!

If you have a problem staying away from tempting bread, walk on the other side of the aisle when you pass Acme Bread in the Ferry Building! There is much to tempt you here. We like to buy bread (particularly the pull-apart baguette) to pair with our Cowgirl Creamery cheeses. Our only complaint on this trip was that rather than... More
