The Ferry Building Marketplace

If you’re interested in doing some shopping while in San Francisco, the Ferry Building Marketplace has a great sample of stalls dedicated to everything from flowers to ceramics, dessert to gourmet cheese and a Blue Bottle coffee spot. I had a lot of fun browsing all the stalls and picked up a ‘tea satchet’ of […]

I loved this market place! We went in July and it was so busy! My favourite was this stand that sold the freshest lavender. The smell was heavenly! :) Love your pictures!

Wooly Pig Cafe

For lunch, I ordered the Wooly Pig sandwhich from The Wooly Pig cafe and it was delicious. Hot, marinated pork belly + crunchy argula + soft bread make for a great bite. I actually stopped by the Wooly Pig cafe after searching for ‘lunch’ spots on Yelp near the map area that I was walking […]

That looks delicious! I’ve never used Yelp for food recommendations when I’m traveling, but that’s a great idea! I usually find places online in advance or stop at the first place I see because I’m starving :)

The Mill

The Mill is a gorgeous coffee shop near San Francisco’s Haight Ashbury district.

Lombard Street

Lombard Street sure is wacky. This crooked road in San Francisco’s Russian Hill district twists and turns eight brake screeching times and was originally built to connect Hyde and Leavenworth streets by reducing the hill’s natural 27% grade. I walked over to Lombard Street by way of Ghirardelli Square, but if you prefer to cable […]

I like Lombard St! It’s such a quaint little street. Super tiring to walk all the way up though. Should have thought of doing it the other way around really! x

yes, walking down is much much more pleasant ha :)

[…] you book ahead! While in town, don’t forget to walk along Fisherman’s wharf, drive down twisty Lombard Street and check out the […]
