About Us


Our Story

Since 1924, thousands of San Francisco Bay Area families have made Greenlee’s Bakery a tradition and frequent destination to enjoy our one of kind cinnamon bread. Greenlee’s artisan bakers have maintained our award winning signature recipe. The second generation of the Geldner family continues to grow the Greenlee’s family business and traditions. We are a family of strong women raising strong women.


Artisan Traditions

Our bakers start work before the sun rises each day to ensure that every artisan batch is as fresh as possible before it gets to you. The warm smell of cinnamon bread baking often escapes onto the street before we've even opened. We're dedicated to kickstarting your morning with our famous artisan bread and a cup of hot coffee or tea!


Handcrafted Goods

We work with local suppliers to source the freshest and most authentic ingredients, and use our handmade artisan  technique to ensure the highest quality. Our goal is to make you and your tastebuds happy!
