They sell nice breads, and most of them looked like French bread, that is hard out side of the bread. I enjoyed the one with cheese. It was awesome for me. But if you have hard time with chewing hard staff, be aware. You may need soup or something to soften them.

Oh my god this bread was amazing! I thought it would be average and overpriced considering the location but i was so wrong. We ordered a bunch of small breads just to try them all. I could really feel the texture of everything I was trying. I really can't say how jealous I am that we don't have similar bread... More

The Bay Area is blessed with incredible bakers, and this is one of the first artisan bakers that showed up years back. The ferry building inside booth offers tons of great options and they are ALL good! Their sourdough baguette is my favorite! Yum!

I swoon over their loaves of bread. It's all I can do not to eat all of them on the way home. Even without butter!

We stopped in here while walking around in the Ferry building and had a raisin roll for while we walked around. There are many different breads and rolls to choose from, all freshly made daily. Acme provides bread for many of the local restaurants as well. This is heaven for a bread lover and it smells divine!

I love this bakery and invariably stop when I'm in the area of the ferry building. Fresh baked bread is steadily coming out of the ovens and is always fresh. I love their olive breads and an olive roll makes a great snack to carry on a hike along the waterfront!

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.
