Dave's Killer Bread at Safeway in San Francisco

Imagine my delight as I walked through the door at the Safeway at Cabrillo and 7th Avenue and found the display for Dave's Killer Bread. Absolutely made my day with Good Seed, Blues, PowerSeed, 21 Whole Grains breads. I am Happy.

  1. That's very exciting. These are hearty breads--you could buy two loaves and use them to tone your arms while you eat a slice.

    1. I was just turned on to Dave's Killer Bread while up in Seattle. I was lamenting how I could not find it in the city. Now to be told it's sold at Safeway! Killer!!

          Yes but not all Safeways and not all of the large variety. Check the store locator. Good stuff, I got mine in Orinda, none in Berkeley yet.

        2. Thanks Cynsa! Imagine my surprise to find that my Safeway in Sharon Heights has this bread - here in the heart of the vast emptiness...

          1. Great news! I always have my sister bring me loaves of Good Seed from Dave's in Portland. They freeze super well. Did you spot any Sin Dawgs??

              Not at the Potrero Safeway. They had four different kinds including Good Seed and the Blues one. I got 21 grain. They're $4.99 this week ($1 off) with a club card.

              1. re: oniontears

                no Sin Dawgs. I wish. My brother brings them when he visits SF from Portland. Let's ask Dave.

                1. re: Cynsa

                  He's apparently making bagels too, but they didn't have any when I was the farmers market in Portland. And not likely they'd travel well.

              2. can someone describe these breads and how they might differ or compare with breads made here in the bay area? thanks in advance

                  Look for it at Costco too - it comes in a two-pack (the Costco way :-). I buy it at Costco in Seattle and Tacoma. One loaf goes in the freezer and it does great!

                  1. re: libstewart

                    Has anyone seen it at local Costco stores? Sounds great.

                  2. re: majordanby

                    It's a hearty, seedy pre-sliced sandwich loaf, similar to Vital Vittles but I think moister. Keeps for a long time.

                    With a great founder's backstory. See the website.

                      thanks for the info. ill be heading up to portland this weekend, so ill grab some there

                      1. re: majordanby

                        You can taste all 10+ kinds and the sin dawgs at the Saturday farmers' market at PSU.

                        1. re: Windy

                          Tasting all the breads' samples at the Saturday Farmers' Market at PSU is a grazing delight. I am longing for a Sin Dawg.

                          1. re: Windy

                            Just got back from the market and tried out most of their breads. You're dead on about the taste and texture - like vital vittles, but more moist. or maybe like beckman's except heavier. I like it and probably will try to find it in the bay area when convenient. I got loaves of powerseed, blues, and sin dawg - and got a tote bag and a bag of good seed for free. they were going for like $4 a loaf, with the most expensive being the raisin at $5.50. And there's a reason why they call them sin dawgs - i could eat a loaf by myself (well, maybe half a loaf as it is fairly sweet).

                            1. re: majordanby

                              Which market has sin dawgs?--oh, you're in Portland :) Lucky you.

                              I've been eating my 21 grain with hazelnut butter I brought home from PSU.

                                I also just tried it for the first time..bought a loaf at the Market St. Safeway in S.F...very very good, moist with an abundance of seeds , so quite chewy and with a slight sweetness from the molasses...they have 3 kinds...
