The whole family enjoyed the rolls. We had rosemary and olive rolls together with Comte cheese in the store next door "Cowgirl creamery". Just north of the store there is a pier, where we enjoyed the lunch in the December sun. Absolutely recommended if you want an easy and pricy lunch.

Auspicious cicumstances in San Francisco afforded me opportunities to indulge in the same sandwich on consecutive days... Acme Bread Company prepares three daily sandwiches for purchase until sold out or 2 pm, whichever comes first. My sammy - sweet rustic bread enclosing fig jam (fruit spread changes at their discretion), Cowgirl Creamery Mt Tam cheese, arugula and cracked black pepper!... More

Tried a few of their creation and they were all great!! It is awesome that many of the eateries in the Ferry Market serve their sandwiches by using ACME bread. First had a yummy swordfish sandwich from one of the seafood places in the market. The bread was so good (plus many other awesomeness in the market) that we went... More

Our hotel was directly across the Ferry Building Marketplace so we stopped by Acme every day for delucious pan au chocolat. The line moves very quickly. This location takes cash only.

Acme is one of three-four great bread bakers in the Bay area. Getting to be a bit large in volume but still top-notch goods. Bit cheaper than others - best value of all the boutiques.

You will know why people are waiting in line for their sandwiches. It's all about the bread- crusty- delicious-sourdough! I had a cheese and jam and my husband had the salami. When they are gone - they are gone - Don't miss them. Grab a cup of coffee..a sandwich and a seat outside for a light, delicious treat. On Saturdays,... More
