John Campbell’s Irish Bakery: Inner Richmond’s Baked Secret

I have an affinity for archaic bakeries hidden within overlooked neighborhoods. No matter how dingy, or how many flies are buzzing around, I will defend one of these bakeries until the bitter end.

Adjust Your Clock to Blue Sky Bakery

Something you need to know about me- I take my muffins seriously. More so than cupcakes, the pop ephemera of the pastry world, or other various tarts and cakes and whatever else, muffins are a source for pure, unmitigated deliciousness if done right. Unfortunately, many of them come out tasting
