We saw people going in and out during our LONG wait across the street at Mama's and decided to go after to get focaccia bread. They were sold out of a lot, but what we got was good. Not great, but very good. Would have been better hot. The counter staff was not rude, but definitely not friendly.

The food is great, the servers too and during the week you do not have to wait as across the street at Mama's. I had coffee, orange juice, fruits and scrambled eggs and everything was just perfect!

This bakery makes probably the best Focaccia bread in the world outside Italy. Its not only the bread, buying it is an adventure! :) You say the sort you would like, the "bread-women" gets it, you put 5 usd on the counter, take the bread and leave. If you say something, comes too late etc; then it is "no bread... More

They always sell out before you think they might, but it's well worth getting up and out a little early to make a purchase to enjoy all day long. Best EVER.

If you're in North Beach stop at the Liguria Bakery and grab a focaccia square to go! It's so delicious, as greasy as it should be. Every bite reminded me of my summertime vacations in Cinque Terre, Liguria. Just go with the plain, no need to add extra flavors.

The only thing special about this standard bearer of the Italian Flag is the focaccia and despite the plain exterior, interior or the brusque acknowledgment that you even exist, you indeed are there just for that, the focaccia! While in San Francisco, I wouldn't miss a visit there for anything. It manifests childhood memories and those of the Sonoma vineyards... More

I still buy their foccacia when I am in the neighborhood. It is wonderful. Forget Mama's in three years of living there I never bothered with the wait I went to Curley's. Yes they may have the attitude that they do not need you but that is because they don't. My wife worked with a woman who lived in their... More

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
