    All that you could ask for in a bread bakery. Each loaf is given special care. The pan de mie are soft and slightly sweet. The walnut levain has a dense, malty crumb inlaid with chopped walnuts. Read more

    grab a loaf, go next door for a wheel of Mt. Tam cheese at Cowgirl Creamery, and find a secluded/scenic spot for a picnic ... one of my favorite meals/experiences in the city!

    Take it from an NYC bread snob - this place makes the best sourdough I've ever had. Just the smell of the rising dough outside is phenomenal.

    Croissants. Half the price of tartine and much better. Grab one and a coffee at Blue Bottle and sit outside and watch the tourists watching ferries.

    Best way to spend less than a dollar. Go get a yummy, fresh roll. Olive or raisin for savory or sweet.

    Challah bread is baked only on the weekends and sells out quickly! Get it while you can... you won't be sorry.

    Toast a slice of their sweet loaf bread and slather on some creamy European style butter from the Farmer's Market here. Golden!
