The comeback of Con Pane Rustic Breads & Café is complete, with the recent reopening of the cherished bakery. Shuttered in January due to immigration issues after a decade in Liberty Station, it was acquired by the Cohn Restaurant Group earlier this summer and folded under the local hospitality group’s umbrella. The 4,000-square-foot eatery, which includes a 1,000-square-foot patio, has since undergone minor cosmetic changes and some kitchen upgrades.
Back open for pickup and delivery orders starting at 7 a.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. on weekends, its house favorites have returned under the guidance of Con Pane’s original owner Catherine Perez. The revived menu features sandwiches and fresh-baked favorites including the brioche cinnamon rolls and standout cookies and its shelves are once again are stocked with always-available artisan loaves and baguettes as well as weekly bread specials such as Gruyere & Chive and Pane Cioccolata. There’s also a holiday menu, with limited time treats like Apricot Panettone and Dresden Stollen.
