SAN FRANCISCO WEEKEND GETAWAY

Golden Gate Bridge in the Fog

Patrick whisked me away this past weekend to celebrate my birthday in San Francisco.  We covered so much ground in just 2 full days in the city.

Our flight was delayed on Friday night, so our plans for dinner got a little switched around.  We dropped our bags at the hotel and headed down the hill to Del Popolo for some much needed pizza.  Our hotel was located in Nob Hill and ended up being centrally located to everywhere we wanted to go.

The next morning we woke up early and ventured out to grab coffee before heading to the SF MoMA.  Thanks to one of you for passing along Victoria’s Guide to San Francisco, we headed to Blue Bottle for coffee and avocado toast.  Patrick surprised me with tickets to the MoMa.  I was an Art History major in college, so there is nothing more I love than exploring a new museum in a new city.

After the museum, we started walking. And by walking, I mean we walked until we dropped.  We walked from the Financial District all the way to the Bridge. The weather was perfect all day, the pictures don’t do the clear sky any justice.  The fog covered the bridge, of course. After our walk through the neighborhoods of SF, we got dropped off for a drink at Wayfare Tavern and then decided to grab a bite to eat at Park Tavern.  Both were darling spots that I would definitely recommend to anyone visiting.

We decided to do a little shopping in Union Square before heading to dinner at Cala.  It was by far the best meal we had in San Francisco.

The next day we headed to Filmore Street for coffee and a little window shopping.  We planned to go to Jane for a quick breakfast but it was a little crowded, so we ended up walking over to Saint Franks instead.  Coffee at Saint FranksWe spent the day wandering around the streets of Pacific Heights and ended up all the way at the Ferry Building. For lunch, we decided to venture to the Mission for what was known as the “best burrito” in the world at La Taqueria.  It was everything and more.

After seeing a little of the Mission area, we made a quick pit stop at the “Painted Ladies.” How cute are these houses?

It was a quick trip, but I feel like we got to see the charm of the city.  If you are planning on visiting San Francisco be sure to check out Julia and Victoria’s San Francisco guides for great local spots.
