This family-owned corner bakery in North Beach has been baking its speciality focaccia since 1911. As the story goes, Liguria's flat bread is made from a secret recipe brought over from Genoa by the original family patriarch. The bread is baked in an ancient brick oven, then sliced into rectangular sheets, wrapped in white paper, and tied up with twine. You can't go wrong with the plain focaccia, or the olive one, or the raisin one, or the onion one. Take our word, they're all good.
The only choices you’ll have to make at Liguria, a family-owned bakery, are focaccia or more focaccia. You can get it plain, onion, pizza, raisin, garlic, rosemary, mushroom, black olive, rosemary garlic, or with jalapeño cheese. The good news is you can’t go wrong with any of them (though the plain and pizza are definitely favorites). Of course, if you don’t get there early (there will be a line), you might not have a choice because when the focaccia is gone, it’s gone. Oh, and bring cash, ‘cause credit cards are not accepted.
How to book: Walk up.
