Just some of the many Irish treats available at John Campbell's Irish Bakery in San Francisco.

To celebrate Saint Patrick's Day, we visit an Irish bakery in San Francisco. John Campbell's Irish Bakery serves savory and sweet goodies that bring the Old Country alive in the new one.

Among the items John Campbell offers are Irish soda bread, scones and beef pasties. He also sells curry, which is popular in Ireland, as well as corned beef and cabbage, a dish he says he didn't eat in Ireland.

"I only heard about corned beef and cabbage when I came to the United States," Campbell says.
