San Francisco

 

We had the luck of being able to stay at a friend’s place (thank you Ryan!) during our visit to San Francisco. The studio was located in Outer Sunset District right near the ocean. A 10-minute walk took us to the very last muni-stop on the Judah line. That gave us the opportunity to discover some more local areas of San Francisco. There were some nice breakfast spots serving delicious coffee and a breakfast sandwich that had the ambition to get you through the day. Also a bike rental that actually had good looking quality bikes and a pizza place that had french fries as a starter on the menu. During the trip we noticed every self-respecting coffee bar or concept store had its own t-shirts for sale.

So our top 5 recommendations after a few days in San Francisco:

  1. Have a breakfast sandwich in Devil’s Teeth Baking Company (or beignets on Sundays) and a take away coffee in Andytown Coffee Roasters, both in Outer Sunset.
  2. Rent bikes at Swell Bicycles and take a ride from Outer Sunset through The Golden Gate Park to the Golden Gate Bridge and back following the scenic route along the ocean, with a sunset view at Sutro Baths near the Cliff House.
  3. Stroll around Mission District, have a glass of wine and an American cheese flight at Mission Cheese, drop by McSweeney’s pop-up shop (the SF-based publishing company founded by Dave Eggers), visit Bi-Rite neighborhood food market and shop for beautiful clothes and souvenirs by local artists at BellJar.
  4. Climb Coit Tower from the city center and down the Greenwich Steps towards the bay.
  5. Visit Alcatraz aka The Rock.
