The Internet is sounding off on a San Francisco bakery reportedly selling a loaf of bread for $29.

Les Gourmands, which opened in San Francisco's South of Market neighborhood about a month ago, features the high-priced brioche on its menu. The San Francisco Chronicle reports the large price tags at the bakery helps pay an 18-month paid apprenticeship program to train new generation in classic French techniques.

Meanwhile, Reddit users are going off about the price tag in a thread titled "$30.00 bread...... welcome to SOMA." Here are a few of the responses from Reddit users:

  • "$30 is a reasonable price if it comes with a whole avocado," one Reddit user wrote.
  • "For $29, it had better actually be from France, flown here this morning..."
  • "It's not even covered in gold leaf?"
