  • 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.
  • Asparagus foccacia is a must, if you like either.
  • 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.
  • Try the seasonal focaccia.
  • For the true Acme experience, go to the original bakery in Berkeley at Cedar & San Pablo!
  • Toast a slice of their sweet loaf bread and slather on some creamy European style butter from the Farmer's Market here. Golden!
  • The pumpkin roll was amazing and somewhat healthy, too. Cute place.
  • Brilliant bread!
  • Im very particular and can confirm this is excellent bread. Pain de Epi is a wonderful French style loaf that pairs well with cheese. Highly recommend.
  • No trip to San Francisco is complete without some sourdough, and Acme is a great place to get your sourdough fix.
  • Love how they have all the different types of bread on displayed. Tried the broccolini focaccia and almond croissant and would recommend both.
  • Tons of amazing bread. All different kinds freshly made. Had to buy a sourdough while in San Fran. You can't go wrong. All fairly priced and if you don't know which one you want very helpful staff
  • Rye raisin rabbit. Yes #awesome
  • Best way to spend less than a dollar. Go get a yummy, fresh roll. Olive or raisin for savory or sweet.
  • Disappointingly chewy croissant. No flake, not good :-(
  • We love the walnut bread! The cranberry-walnut is delicious too!
  • I call this place bread heaven ;) rustic sweet baguette, teeny roll, olive roll, and pain de mie!!! love love love them~
  • Get yourself a sourdough cheese wheel or 5.
  • The whole wheat levain is my favorite bread on the planet.
