A Stroll Down Valencia

Four Barrel Coffee

Start the day off with a cappuccino in this stylishly-designed rock 'n roll inspired coffee bar.

Tailor Stitch

Create a custom-fitting shirt or design your own shoes while striking up conversations with the owners. Continue up Valencia and stop in at more retail stores, vintage furniture stores and creative one-of-a-kind shops.

Puerto Alegre

Sit outside for brunch at this SF institution. Amazing food (first timers, get the Quesadilla Suiza w/ Avocado), great atmosphere, tasty chips and salsa and great inexpensive margaritas.

Mission Dolores Park

Grab some drinks, bring a blanket and soak in the sunshine with a collection of SF's finest while taking in views of the City.

Anthony's Cookies

Nice post-park snack. Perfectly baked, both chewy and crunchy. Assortment of flavors... you'll want to try a few.

3300 Club

Wander into Bernal Heights and stop at 3300 Club for the best Guinness in the City.

Emmy's Spaghetti Shack

They don't take reservations and always packed (walk across the street while at 3300 Club and put your name in). For two, the Ceasar salad and spaghetti and meatball is the way to go. One of my favorite meals in the City.

The Royal Cuckoo

End your evening with hand-crafted cocktails and a solid jukebox.

Mystic Hotel

Hidden Union Square stylish hotel featuring a great cocktail bar and restaurant (Burritt Room and Tavern).
