Bakery recommendations in SF or nearby?

Having just returned from NYC, I'm on a quest to find the best bakeries in the area. My opinions so far:

Arizmendi, 9th Ave, SF: not my fave. too much sourdough. interesting pizza though.

La Nouvelle Patisserie, Union St., SF: favorite so far. French.

Boulange de Cole Valley, Parnassus @ Cole, SF: French bistro classics. good.

Tart to Tart, Irving St., SF: like the late hours, but not my fave and i dunno why.

Just Desserts: *shrug* not impressed.

Eppler's: could be a lot better.

Galli's Sanitary Bakery, South SF: good pastries!

La Victoria Mexican Bakery, 24th St, SF: inexpensive. interesting. always pop in when i'm in that hood.

Victoria Pastry, North Beach, SF: Italian bakery. not bad. like those in NY but smaller.

Mara's Italian Bakery: Columbus St., SF: good foccacia

Liguria Bakery, North beach: good foccacia

would love to hear other comments.
