A weekly survey of bread in San Francisco ― the baked and the fried, the
artisan and the novelty.
Sweet Potato Loaf
Baker & Banker Bakery 1701 Octavia (at Bush), 351-2500; open Weds.-Sun., 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
After making it through the long (and, we're sure, arduous) permitting process, the bakery window on the side of Lori Baker and Jeff Banker's eponymous restaurant opened a few weeks back. Along with the butter-bound sweets and savories, Baker is selling three breads a day. The constant is a baguette; the other two change daily, and range from focaccia to challah.
