Bought a loaf of french bread here. Bread was very good and the selection of different breads in this store is amazing.

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

We stopped here just to get some rolls for a snack. The rolls were like 60 cents each and were wonderfully crusty yet chewy on the outside and fresh and soft on the inside. Such a wonderful little gem.

I like especially the bread that looks the branches of a tree. The buns you just break it off. Very fresh and enjoyalbe. A lot of restaurants do serve their bread, like at the Hog Island. Recommended.

Sometimes they even have what you want hot so it's definitely worth asking if you are going to eat it straight away. There is no seating in the store but if it's a nice day it's great to take some fresh bread and sit out by the water. We tried the whole wheat cranberry walnut loaf. It was a bit... More

Lovely fresh bread for all you carb lovers. I definitely suggest grabbing some then heading next store to cow girl creamery for some cheese

We had the good fortune of showing up just as they started selling their sandwiches (11 am). The brie, arugula and jam/chutney one was fantastic; my partner really enjoyed the meat one (salami, I believe) as well. Not being a local, I don't know how quickly they sell out, but they do only sell them while quantities last, so you... More

Having not been to many bakeries in my life, when I saw this one, I decided to take a chance. Boy am I glad I did. Their bread is amazing, simply amazing. Every morning during my vacation, I would walk across the way to this bakery and buy a couple of their Cinnamon Currants - you wont be sorry! In... More

Wholewheat with seeds and no corn syrup, sugar, agave, aspartame, sweet yuk. Bread worth the name. And a cool friendly ambience with the service.
