The bread is JUST GORGEOUS. Fresh, light and full of flavour. It was just beautiful. The bread was a great treat - go next door for some perfect spreads too :)

One of the great options you can find at the Ferry Plaza, I went with my son and we had a lot of trouble deciding which to choose, all the options we bought were delicious, his favorite was the cinnamon roll.

This place has so many different types of bread for you to choose from it's great. Baked fresh each day and tastes really good. Small front area but larger baking area in the back. There's a layout of all the breads with signage at the front ordering area so that you know what they are and what they look like.... More

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.
