            That place looks awesome. Do you know of any bakeries in walking distance from the Ritz Carlton?

              Cafe Rulli in Union Square, though the selection is limited compared with their other branches. Brioche on Columbus. La Boulange on California, or Market.

        1. Liguria Bakery for the focaccia.

          1. Knead Pattiserie on 24th and Folsom (part of Mission Local). Small selection but extremely good

            Craftsman and Wolves on Valencia


            1. Don't forget Noe Valley Bakery!
