Boutique bakery nearly ready to open

A boutique bakery is preparing to open in the Bernal Heights neighborhood after more than two years of planning and construction efforts.

The finishing touches are being put on the independently-owned Sandbox Bakery on Cortland Avenue at Gates Street, and opening is scheduled for Nov. 15, according to cofounder Mike Bradford.

The business is in the process of obtaining the last of its needed city permits, according to Bradford.

Bradford said his wife, Mustumi Bradford, a Japanese-born, French-trained pastry chef, will oversee preparation of San Francisco-style deli sandwiches and artisan savory baked items with a Japanese flair.

The couple purchased the storefront, which has housed a motorcycle repair shop and an artists’ studio in recent years, in early 2007 with the intention of turning it into a bakery.

The bakery will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
