We live about 4 hours away and always take rosemary slab and/or rosemary rolls home with us, to enjoy the great food of the city just a little bit longer. We pair the bread with Cowgirl Creamery soft cheese and Golden Gate Meat Company Salami

Soooo good! The last time I was there, I got their scallion bread and dipped it into fresh sheep ricotta from next door Cowgirl Creamery, while sitting on a bench looking out at the bay. How could one not be happy?

Acme has a wide variety of breads, all very good. Unfortunately, the line and wait at the Ferry Bdlg can be long and time-consuming, which attests to how good the bread is.

The olive loaf is fantastic and the general taste of bread is better than most of the other more well known SF bakeries.

The Ferry Building is a great place to dine and shop. It is always nice to bring home a loaf of fresh baked sourdough bread.
