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.

If you are a bread lover as we are, this is the place in town to be. Them, buy some cheese at the Cowgirls Cheese Shop (just nest to it) and you will have the breakfast of your life! Don't miss the green olive bread

Always buy a couple of loaves here to pack in the suitcase and take home to the missus. This bread is oh so good. Unlike La Brea (which was good before they sold out to another company), this bakery continues to produce delicious baked goods that are packed with flavors and textures that please the mouth

We enjoyed their bread at Chez Panisse and were delighted to find out they had a shop in the Ferry Building. We decided to eat breakfast here every morning during our trip, as it was a close walk from our hotel. To die for delicious bread and we especially loved their sourdough cheese rolls. Service was quick and friendly and... More
