Although you can’t dine at one of their two sister cafes at the moment, Jane the Bakery is still open with a range of mouth-watering breads and pastries ready to take away and create your own coffee experience à la House. Central Milling’s flour, yeast and their sourdough starter are also available to add to your order. Don’t think you can finish a whole loaf? Half loaves are possible for many menu items and their loaves freeze well. Go ahead and order to your gluten tolerant heart’s content. We have been!

Delivery is available for free within a one-mile radius of the bakery if you text them at 415-926-3061 or through DoorDash if you are beyond that radius. Although take-out is an option daily from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., call ahead to reserve some items as many sell out quickly.


The Mission’s beloved wine bar housed in a former record store not only offers bottles of wine from their collection to pair with your next Zoom happy hour (which just got happier because you won’t have to share a single drop from one of the 20 bottles of Spot, are we right?), but also paper towels, gloves, fresh products, flour, sugar, dry products, bread kits, homemade pizza dough, and trays of their 19-year-old sourdough.

Pre-order online for a scheduled pickup date and time.
