Good bread in San Diego

Any suggestions? Whole Foods in Hillcrest used to have great bread but these days it's very boring. Please don't say Bread et Cie ... their prices are absurd. Salerno Bakery in Little Italy sells a good Italian loaf that is stale by the time you get it home. Where can you buy a great baguette or pane in San Diego?

  1. Get the par-baked at Salerno. Then it will be fresh when you make it.

      I would say my favorite is sadie rose. I had some of their bread at Peggy's Pasta at the Hillcrest Farmer's market and it was full on artisan look and taste... good price too. They have a bunch of types listed on their site here

    2. O'Briens in Del Mar off Del Mar Heights Rd just west of I-5 has excellent bread, particularly sourdough.

      1. Charlie's Bread in Pacific Beach. Same shopping center as Great News the cookware/cooking school, on the other side of the building. Garnet & Jewel

        1. In my opinion Bread on Market makes the best artisan bread in San Diego. It's on Market between 7th and 8th.

          1. Yup- Bread on Market.
