12 Essential Bakeries Still Open for Takeout in San Francisco

What’s more essential than our daily bread? But also, cake.

View as Map

With the shelter-in-place order in effect, only essential businesses are allowed to remain open in San Francisco — but what’s more essential than our daily bread? Across the city, bakers are still going to work, shuttling loaves into ovens, and finding ways to get them into the hands of hungry customers. SF has always been a city with legendary sourdough, and per usual, plenty of bakeries are selling crusty country-style levains. But also, softer crumbs have kind of been reverse trending, for those who love the pillowy comforts of eggy brioche, challah, and white sandwich bread. Plus, there are still cupcakes and cookies to be found, for anyone celebrating a birthday or drowning their sorrows in buttercream. Here’s a list of San Francisco bakeries that are still keeping the ovens warm and staying open for takeout or delivery.

This list was accurate at the time of publication. But many bakeries have been changing their hours and closing, so before making a special trip, check social media or call ahead.
