How Often Do You Blindly Eat Pizza – Arizmendi Pizza combines the best of bread - a sourdoughy crust - with the best of pizza - always amazing combinations, always vegetarian, combining interesting veges of the season into a pizza pie everyone loves. The stuff of fantasies.
Citysearch Editorial Review – In a city overflowing with cafes and bakeries, this Inner Sunset co-op is among the best of the best--with the lines of hungry customers to prove it. Perhaps because the tiny, mostly take-out neighborhood bakery is worker-owned, there's a palpable sense of care and customer service that's almost a throwback to times past, where employees know regulars' names and treat even the purchase of a single scone with smiles. Each day brings a new batch of baked goods--some breakfast-y items like bran muffins and pecan rolls are always available, while breads ranging from multi-grain to challah, soda bread to pumpernickel are made according to a weekly schedule. The secret to Arizmendi's success, however, may lie in their pizza: a simple sourdough crust topped with a daily-changing assortment of vegetarian toppings available by the piece or whole pie. Spend a few minutes waiting in that ever-present line and you'll see nearly everyone walks out with a slice or two.
Best bakery in San Francisco!! – This is hands-down my favorite bakery in San Francisco. The breads and pastries are delicious and fresh, and never sickeningly sweet or heavy. The pumpkin muffin, corn-cherry scone, brioche knot, and pecan roll are my favorites. It's almost unbelievable - every single thing they make is good! The thin-crust pizza is very tasty, light and not too cheesy - it can be a little on the oily side however. Arizmendi is usually crowded and the seats are all taken, and parking is pretty bad - still, the addicting baked goods are totally worth it.
Great baked goods and pizza! – Arizmendi is the best bakery in the area. Their scones, muffins, and cookies are delicious, but make sure to try their pizza above all else! The staff of this co-op is friendly and helpful.
Bakery goods are made on the premises – I live in the neighborhood but yesterday was my first time into Arizmendi. The breads and pastries are all fresh and I ended up buying over $30 worth of goods. I recommend the bakery for their tasty goods. However, I took off a lot of points because the checkout clerk became so surly when I, in my ignorance, set all the bags full of goods I wanted to buy on the counter all at once instead of one at time--I was supposed to put just one bag on the counter, wait while she weighed, rang up and did whatever else and only then set down the next bag. I had 5 bags full of bakery goods plus bags from other stores and had never shopped Arizmendi before so didn't know their oddball checkout protocols (every other store I've ever shopped in you can put all the things you want to pay for on the counter simultaneously). The checkout girl took on such an offensive attitude at my egregious offense that I wanted to cancel my purchases and walk out--who needs that type of attitude when you're trying to support local small businesses? Arizmendi would be well served to train their hired help better in customer service.
FANTASTIC – Everything is fresh, scrumptious & addicting!! The only downside is they are closed on Mondays. :)
Arguably the city's best pizza, bread and breakfast treats--all in the same place. – In Short
There's one bench and a couple of chairs for pizza eaters to perch on while munching, but this is really a takeout sort of place. Thin-crusted sourdough pizza is crammed with different toppings daily. While the bakery makes a variety of breads each day, the sourdough bread is good enough to come back for. Rolls, cheese, yogurt and pastries--including chocolate cake--are available to make the start of your day a little sweeter.
Probably better in the a.m. – ...when the goods are freshly baked. stopped by in the afternoon to try after reading many rave reviews. Brioche was pretty good, a little dry. Challah roll was decent but, again, a little dry. Strawberry Foccacia was really hard and chewy and not as flavorful as it appeared to be. Will try the pizza next time.
Scones, Cookies, Pizzas, Breads- they do it all! – Arizmendi is the BEST in town- everything is FRESH, served with a smile, and their food is the BEST to be had in the neighborhood! Their scones are de-lectable (slightly crumbly but moist and a little salty) and their pizzas of the day always make my mouth water! Everything is made fresh daily and their breads are the best in town! It's worth the long waits on weekends and even one some weekdays- get there well before afternoon for the best selection! They have 'half baked' pizzas that you can take home and 'cook' yourself- yum! Always a treat, and the best food in the area!
Delicious! – It's clear why the line at Arizmendi is always out the door, the bread is fantastic and the pizzas are to die for. ( rhyme not intended) This fun neighborhood place is one of the "jewels" of the inner sunset.
