Best. Bread. Ever. In the 3 days I was in San Fran I was here 4 times! Can't even pick a favourite, everything was good.

We found a huge line in front of ACME Bread Company while we are wondering around the Ferry Building. So we just joined the line and talk to the person behind us, he told us that this is the best bread in Bay area. We bought different kinds of bread and they all taste good!

The Acme bread company provides very delicious baked goods. You can pick up a sandwich made with ingredients from other Ferry building vendors and have a great picnic on a boat ride. A great chain with lines for good reason.

Stopped here as part of our "edible excursion" tour. Enjoyed it so much with the Cowgirl Creamery Mt. Tam cheese that we bought both for our flight home today!

Loved all the breads we purchased: Pain au Levain, Olive Bread and of course, sourdough! It definitely lived up to the reputation.

We have enjoyed buying different breads from Acme at the Ferry Building. Cowgirl Creamery that has wonderful artisan cheese is next door. For a nice picnic lunch, its a great duo. We have enjoyed both.

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
