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

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
