As part of the Ferry Building’s five new heated, outdoor arcade stalls, Marla Bakery is now up and running (or will be at 11:30 a.m. today) on the Embarcadero. The new Marla is open every day with a daily-changing menu of its popular bagels, english muffins, housemade yogurt, kouign amann and more, plus a Wrecking Ball coffee and espresso bar (there’s also currently pannetone and stollen for the holidays). The shop, like the others in the arcade, is counter service, and caters to the on-the-go working and tourist crowds. Thus, there’s also a daily lunchbox with a sandwich, two sides and a cookie and takeaway items like bagel four-packs, bagel chips and black sesame and sea salt crackers.
Marla Bakery is the third of five new heated, outdoor stalls to open in the new “arcade” build-out along the Embarcadero side of the building. Blue Bottle and Sow Juice opened this month, and Fort Point Beer Company and Dandelion Chocolate are soon to follow. Marla Bakery is open Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
