Stop here to get a freshly baked pastry after grabbing a coffee inside the Ferry Building. Lots of different pastries to choose from and impressive selection of breads

ACME Bread is a great place to pick up some delicious baked goods while in San Francisco! They have a great selection of fresh baked goods that come in all sizes and shapes.

It doesn't get much better than fresh bread of any kind first thing in the morning. They have a great selection at the Ferry Building location. It's as beautiful to look at as it is tasty.

What can you say about bread? Acme has been the go-to for delicious bread for years! Get yourself a loaf and a wedge of cheese from Cowgirl Creamery next door and head outside for the best picnic ever

One of the three top bread makers in the SF Bay Area; baguettes are a staple. Better restaurants all over use Acme.

Excellent bread but good new competition from Pain and Firebrand. I especially like the baguette and the olive bread.

Acme has been around since I was in teenager and I love the smell of the fresh bread when I would walk in. I believe they deliver their bread to very nice restaurants and you can see the vans with Acme on them. They have all sorts of different breads that you will find one you love! I believe the...

I love this bakery. The bread is affordable and it is fantastic!! I prefer to buy it straight from the bakery at the Ferry Building, but it is also to be found in local markets. Super good!

Read about this bakery in a sourdough taste off article. It was rated number one. We walked from the wharf to the Ferry building just to get bread here to take home with us. As a snack while walking around we got a cheese wheel...OMG, the best!

I have had great breads from Boston, New York, and Philadelphia..not to mention Italy. Legionary bakeries....the best. Well, move over east coast! Acme rates right up there with the best of the best! Wish they were in my neighborhood; it would be bread, butter or olive oil and wine for the rest of my life.
