Looking for bakery bargains
I'm looking for bakery bargains in san francisco...weekly deals, day-olds sold for cheap, or just plain something delicious that's sold for not too much money. While taste IS important I'm also interested in scope -ie, do certain neighborhoods have more bargains, do few have bargains, etc? Recession specials, if you will.
So far I've got on my list:
1. Philz coffee sells day-old pastries for super cheap
2. That Takes The Cake sells reduced price day-old cupcakes
3. Maggie Mudd -Wednesday sales
I know From Hollow in the Ferry Building used to offer pastry deals late in the afternoon after they'd stopped baking for the day but I know they've had some turnover and aren't sure if they still do that.
I was amazed at how cheap pan dulces can be. Like 3 or 4 for a buck - and that's the regular price. My nearby Mexican store has a bakery case, and each day's supply gets delivered around 9 am there.
There's an area in the back of House of Bagels on Geary in SF where they sell all sorts of day old bagels, breads, etc. at reduced prices.
