Lean times come around as regularly as a sloppy drunk at happy hour.  Family histories are peppered with tales of day old bread, ration lines, buying fruit from the back of the grocer and eggs for dinner.

No shame in any of these, which is why you can do your grand pappies proud and utilize a resource custom made for wallets full of moths.

Although the Rainbo has been closed for sometime now, we still have the Entenmann’s-Oroweat Bakery Outlet Store to pad your pantry with all sorts of starchy goodness and other sundry staples and snacks.  No La Boulange, true, but hey, distance makes the heart grow fonder.

Entenmanns’s and Oroweat were bought a while back by Bimbo America which means there’s all those lovely Estadounidense brands and lots of tasty Mexi ones too like the delicious classic, Gansito.  Surprising someone else besides the octopus from Bentonville is benefiting from 'œfree trade.'

Stephen Torres - Threadbare-Fact Finder (Editor, San Francisco)

Stephen's early years were spent in a boxcar overlooking downtown Los Angeles. From there he moved around the state with his family before settling under the warm blanket of smog that covers suburban Southern California. Moving around led to his inability to stay in one place for very long, but San Francisco has been reeling him back in with its siren song since 1999.
By trade he pours booze, but likes to think he can write and does so occasionally for the SF Bay Guardian, Bold Italic and 7x7. He also likes to enjoy time spent in old eateries, bars and businesses that, by most standards, would have been condemned a long time ago.

    This place is awesome- look for their coupons in local papers for additional deals (spend $4 get a loaf of bread freeeee)!

    Fucking LOVE this place! The best deals around on bread & even some extra goodies, and hell, they’re just a couple blocks away from where I park my home!

    From very, very good bread that you would normally pay up to 4x as much from anywhere else, to cheap baked sweet stuff – just don’t go there expecting your “artisan” loaves of the wine & cheese variety, but pretty much any good sammich breads – all the way up to 12 grains!

    If sammies ain’t your thang and you have an incurable sweet tooth for cakes and the general Enteman’s variety of schtuff, they have you covered as well.

    Do your inside sandwich shopping at Safeway, and remember to get the stuff to wrap your favorite stuff in here – you’re bound to save a decent couple of bucks, which is usually about a couple more than I have… more or less.
