I love bread - Edit

I loved going here before I was vegan, and I still love this place....even though it's not all vegan. I love bread even more than Oprah does, and they got the goods. That said, sometimes on weekends the line can be out the door, and then it's tricky to figure out what you want since it's small inside you have to maneuver around the people in the queue. I recommend that you check their website before visiting and look for the rotating bread schedule, they also list which items are vegan on their website ( You wouldn't want to go all the way to the bakery hoping to get pumpernickel only to find out you should have gone on a Thursday. They are closed every Monday.

not enough options - Edit

There aren't a lot of vegan choices. Only 1 vegan cookie. Sometimes there is a vegan focaccia, but not always.

great bakery - Edit

I go here often because the bread is the best. Some of it is vegan. They also have one or two varieties of vegan muffins, and some wonderful vegan chocolate mint cookies. They usually have one kind of vegan foccia as well. It would be even better if they ditched the oil, which for some reason they drizzle all over the foccia. It’s a mess, an adds unnecessary calories.

Pros: great bread. I love their politics

Cons: the oil on the foccia

Great Bakery and Center of Sunset - Edit

This bakery is a breath of fresh air. They have vegan and vegetarian options only and their baked goods are extremely high quality, generously portioned, and the ambience is the best. I wish they had one in our neighborhood. I would quit work.

Pros: Delicious high quality baked goods, Great ambience, Neighborhood place

Cons: Haven't started one in my neighborhood.

Yummy Muffin, good coffee - Edit

I like good fresh baked goods, so it's not difficult for me to find reasons to like this place. Read about it on happycow and decided that I had to come check it out. Was here in October 2012, here's my Arizmendi Bakery review.

Seemed like quite a popular place with the locals. Lots of people grabbing something to go, some eating outside. the pizza of the day is written on a chalkboard (always with dairy unless you make a special advanced order for a whole pie).

You'll find lots of fresh baked breads and pastries, few labeled as 'gluten-free' and a few labeled as 'vegan.' I got the vegan banana-nut muffin, a vegan apricot cookie, and their coffee (Equator brand). Everything was yummy, including the coffee.

Would definitely come back again next time I'm in the area.

Probably the best bakery in SF - Edit

This is my neighborhood bakery. My boyfriend and I go there at least 3 times a week. The focaccia is the best, usually they have a vegan option as well. Really good coffee too. All organic ingredients, really yummy. I recently went gluten free and Arizmendi is the one thing I still crave daily.

Pros: healthy cusine, good value, excellent food
