As a foodie, San Francisco was my mecca. With endless possibilities of delicious dining, two weeks just wasn’t enough to try it all! Here is what I came up with as my top spots of Frisco dining!
Breakfast, The Most Important Meal of the Day
Coffee: It’s a Grind (Polk St.)
For all of my Weeds fans out there, you must get an iced coffee at It’s a Grind, in honor of the one and only Nancy Botwin!
Donuts: Dynamo Donut (Mission District)
This little hole in the wall stole my heart. Each day, they post their daily donuts on a wooden board.. they have everything from maple glazed bacon apple, to I am not a Gluten chocolate with raspberry glaze. You will become a donut addict in no time!
Brunch (featuring bottomless mimosas)
Breakfast Tacos: Luna Park (Valencia St.)
This place is very cozy! With cute little booths in the back, if you’re looking for a more intimate experience. The food is delicious and the drinks are strong. What more can you ask for in a brunch?
Delicious Peruvian Food: Fresca (Noe Valley)
Eggs in lobster sauce, with a side order of bottomless mimosas…. game over.
It’s not NY Pizza, but it will do…
This cool little spot near UC Berkeley makes one type of pizza and salad each day. Really cool concept, and, there is a bar inside.
Pizza with a view! After biking the Golden Gate into the town of Sausalito, take a break, get a slice and a glass of wine, and sit and watch the boats go by.
hAPPy Hour: Apps & Drinks
Muscles: Eagle Cafe
I consider myself to be a muscle connoisseur, and these were, by far, the best muscles I’ve ever had in my life. They were humungous!! The view could not be more beautiful… definitely a place to check out if you like seafood.
Sushi: Hana Zen
I’ve never had a California roll tempura style before this. The crab tasted so fresh! Plus, you can’t put a price tag on the view.
Spicy Margaritas: Tres
(across from AT&T Park)
Jalapeño margaritas are in contention for my favorite alcoholic beverage, and the ones at Tres have won their way into my heart. This is a cool spot to watch the game— they have a huge projector screen in the back, and tents in the yard that are great for mingling with other fans.
The Fastest of Foods
In & Out
… duh. don’t forget to get it animal style!
Burritos, Tacos & Quesadillas, oh my!: Mission District (
walk down 24th st.)
If you’re looking to try the best Mexican food, come to the Mission. Anywhere you go will be delicious. The quesadillas are the size of your average burrito… so you can imagine what that means for their burritos.
Persian Food: Lavish (Hayes Valley)
The decor of this place reminded me of my room back at home.. so cozy! I was recommended to try the The The Bademjan… and now I am passing this recommendation on to you!
After Hours: Dessert & Drinks
Ice Cream: Ghirardelli Square
This needs no explanation. Go stuff your face.
Irish Coffee: Buena Vista (Fisherman’s Warf)
This Irish Coffee is world famous! It is the perfect night cap after a long day of exploring the city.
