Here’s an update on TWOFISH BAKING COMPANY, the Sea Ranch bakery we announced that is opening a location in South Beach from Margaret Smith and Hilla Ahvenainen. They are officially opening their doors tomorrow, Wednesday August 13th. The new space will offer their rather famous baked goods (they are known for selling out at the Sonoma Coast location), including the signature sticky buns and apricot windowpanes, along with scones, muffins, banana bread, and cakes. There will also be some gluten-free choices. Coffee and espresso is from Equator, whose beans they’ve been using since opening 11 years ago.
At lunch, look for three daily changing salads and a variety of calzones. Smith says they are hoping to revive the calzone (Ben Wyatt would be proud), with lighter choices and fresh toppings. There will be a few options, including “Hylla’s Thrilla” with mozzarella, roasted onion, Mike’s Hot Honey, and soppressata; a white calzone with olive oil, garlic, mozzarella, ricotta, and basil; and a vegan option with garlic, onion, mushroom, artichoke hearts, and olives.
For the moment, they are going to try out these different menu options and see what is popular. In the future, there may also be a breakfast calzone, more dishes at lunch, and weekend hours. For now, hours are Mon-Fri 7:30am-3:30pm. 240 Ritch St. at Bryant, 415-970-6965.
