Back in 2012, we mentioned ~M.H. BREAD AND BUTTER~ was opening in San Anselmo. Well, this café from co-owners Nathan Yanko (a baker formerly of Tartine) and Devon Crosby-Helms (a personal chef) is now open. In addition to the artisan baked breads is a menu (from chef Arielle Segal) with a variety of salads (like Bloomsdale spinach with roasted trout, new potatoes, pickled red onion, and mustard vinaigrette), summer squash soup, sandwiches (like marinated carrot and fennel with charred olive, harissa aioli, and poached egg), breakfast items, and pastries (hello aprium-frangipane brioche). There’s also an evening menu that kicks in at 4:30pm, with flatbreads, a nightly braise, and more. Look for some gluten-free and vegan baked goods too. Hours are Mon 7am-3pm, Sun and Wed-Thu 7am-7pm, Fri-Sat 7am-9pm, closed Tue. 556 San Anselmo Ave. at Magnolia, San Anselmo, 415-755-4575.
