Weather inside the ferry building or outside during the farmers market Acme bread is the best place for a great variety of baked breads. Seasonal bread is amazing.

Located in the Ferry Building. Wonderful smells and flavours coming from the Acme Bakery. But long queues can be daunting. But if you wait you'll be rewarded. Well priced pastries including Apple Turnovers. Good luck and enjoy!

Who would give this place a low rating? Take a look at everything on the table and point your way along. Pay cash for a small discount and head over to pick up coffee. Enjoy it all.

Even right before closing the line was long. Bread is amazing. I think a lot of the people were local and repeat customers. Always a good sign.

The smells invite you, the different types of bread tempt you, the prices invite you and the taste steals you. Really tasty bread with a wide selection and fast friendly service.
