Liguria is an interesting bakery in the heart of North Beach. Family run for many years, it is not exactly the place where you go to chat up the owners and have a feeling of warmth. First of all, they close after they’re done selling focaccia, which is the only item they sell. Frozen or fresh, they only make a handful of flavors, and as soon as the last piece is sold out the locks come up and they close down the place. During the weekend, getting there at 10am is late- but during the week they are sometimes open till noon!
If you want your focaccia cut up, make sure you ask before they head to the back, or you’ll be yelled at. Make sure to be swift with your order, or you’ll be yelled at. Just get your order, pay quickly (cash only), and get out to enjoy your wonderful newly bought focaccia! It’s done ligurian style, thin (but not oily enough in my opinion!) and delicious!
