"Best" local whole or multi grain bread?

ML8000 | Oct 7, 2007 09:04 PM

I'm looking for recommendations on whole/multi grain (+/-) breads that are available locally, in Berkeley/Oakland. (No use finding something and it being a hassle to get)

I'm not a huge bread eater but I'm starting to eat it more often for lunch and breakfast on the run (PB&J hold up very well). I've had some Acme breads (I assume multi-grain) at restaurants that were excellent and that's where I'm leaning but I know there's more out there.

Since I'm going to start trying some, I thought I might as well ask, perhaps save some waste.

My criteria: a decent, crunchy crust but I prefer a soft, moist/chew-ish interior, i.e., dislike dense, hard, cardboard, interiors. Loaf is preferred, sliced just gets old faster. Taste (clean, no after-taste) and texture seem to be key.

Any recs? Thanks in advance...
