When The Loaf opened nearly a decade ago, it was the San Sebastián bakery scene equivalent to Edison inventing the lightbulb. OK, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but it was a real turning point for bread in San Sebastián. The Loaf is still one of the only places in town where you can find real, funky sourdough, heavy ryes, and gorgeously large country-style loaves. This is a mandatory stop for any cheese-and-wine picnics, especially since it’s right in front of the Zurriola beach. It’s also a great stop for a to-go coffee, made from beans roasted by hand in Barcelona, with a side of ocean views.
