North Beach is famous for its quaint Italian charm and nowhere epitomizes that magic better than Liguria Bakery on Washington Square Park. Started by three Genovesan brothers in 1911 as a full service bakery, Liguria has, over the years, dropped all its offerings but one: foccacia. Each morning, Liguria sets out dozens of sheets of its buttery bread in flavors like pesto and cheddar jalapeno. Within hours, the focaccia is gone and the bakery closes its doors. If you want a taste, be sure to get there early.
