Baguettes, ciabatta, focaccia, etc.
Some of the stuff at Via Dolce on Montana is great.
I echo the recs for Bay Cities and Amandine.
I've tried Bay Cities and Le Pain du Jour based on people's suggestions. Both are excellent. (Also try the plain butter croissants at Le Pain du Jour--the best in town.)
Amandine and Huckleberry for sure. Stay away from the bread guy at the SM Farmer's Market -- super dry.
Agree about Bay Cities, good and hot. For sourdough, though, its diffficult to beat Pioneer.
The wheat bread at Huckleberry is very good.
The place on the S side of Pico Blvd. a few doors E of Lincoln Blvd. called................?Baguettes are good, sweet stuff is ok but I prefer Amandine and Huckelberry for pastries.Oh yea, it's La Pain du Jour, Inc.
For more artisan-type bread, I second La Pain du Jour. For softer more pliable bread, I third Bay Cities.
Les Delices du Four at the Mar Vista Farmers market on Sundays has really good baguettes, batards and ciabatta.
For etc. bread I like Bay Cities Italian Deli.

Nosh had a great suggestion some time back to freeze Bay Cities bread in pieces to prevent it from going stale.
