Who bakes (and sells) the best breadsticks in San Francisco?

Any recommendations for breadsticks in SF? I really like the ones at Perbacco, but I don't think they are for sale.

      Not of the traditional Italian variety, but Feel Good Bakery in Alameda makes addictive seeded jalapeno cheese breadsticks. They sell at the Sunday Temescal farmers market and the Alameda Point Antique Fair as well as maintaining a brick and mortar presence.

        Are they crisp breadsticks or are they the Olive Garden rolls marketed as breadsticks?

          Never been to the Olive Garden, so couldn't say. The ones I'm talking about are chewy, cheesy, seedy and often quite spicy. When I eat one, I feel like I am eating real food that is good for me.

          As I said, not the traditional kind. They are made of bread and shaped like sticks, sort of like what you mix paint with. They call them breadsticks.

            Neither. They aren't the dry crisp variety, but the aren't bread in the shape of a stick, either. As chocolatetartguy noted, they're flat and chewy (and delicious).

          Italian French Baking Company in North Beach makes traditional grissini.
