A Highlight

Wholewheat with seeds and no corn syrup, sugar, agave, aspartame, sweet yuk. Bread worth the name. And a cool friendly ambience with the service.

Acme consistently churns out some of San Francisco's best sourdough bread + other stellar baked goods. Bread from Acme and cheese from Cowgirl right next to it, is one of my favorite lunches/dinners.

Acme breads had a good variety of breads. We purchased their sourdough breads that were tasty but not as tangy as expected for sourdough.

Do yourself a favour don't leave San Fran before you try the onion flat bread. It was tremendous! We bought a loaf for breakfast and some organic cream cheese from the shop next door. Heaven.
