For those of you following along, you’ll know we were recently over on the West coast and visited San Francisco. I was blown away with the coffee shop culture there! and couldn’t resist visiting as many as possible. Check out which places we went to in San Francisco.
Cafe Reveille in Mission Bay. 610 Long Bridge St, San Francisco, CA 94158
This cafe is a must for design lovers, with its dreamy interiors and laid back vibe it’s perfect for an indulgent caffeine stop, special breakfast or lunch. The layout is spacious filled with fabulous green plants and cacti dotted among the marble top tables inside and bright pink ones outside. The food is very good, lots of organic healthy dishes and tasty pastries for desserts. I would recommend the hibiscus ice tea and to stay as long as possible soaking up the vibe and admiring the beautiful decor!
Mr. Holmes Bake House. 1042 Larkin Street San Francisco, CA.
Mr. Holmes Bake House is worth the hype! The donuts are delicious inside there is a saki raspberry jam, which is amazing. There is a range of pastries to choose from and they change them regularly whilst keeping their best sellers, one being their donuts. It’s a funky little bakery with hip-hop music blaring out and cool neon signs. Perfect spot for a sugar boost or grabbing desert on the way home.
Miette. 449 Octavia Street San Francisco, CA 94102
Pretty in Pink with tasty treats, that’s Miette. This divine little cafe in Hayes Valley is the perfect spot for some cake and is picture perfect for photos. The sweet treats are delicious and oh so pretty.
Absinthe Brasserie. 398 Hayes St at Gough San Francisco, CA 94102.
This brasserie is dreamy and in one of my favorite areas in San Fran-Hayes Valley. The setting is Parisian meets America with laid-back vibes and a great long cocktail list. Great spot for brunch, drinks and just hanging out watching the world go by.
Boulangerie La San Francisco. 500 Hayes Street San Francisco CA 94102.
Great spot for re-fuelling on pastries, tea, coffee and anything in between. The staff are really friendly and always playing good tunes. Sitting outside on the benches with your brew is a must!
Homage is beautifully decked out serving organic locally sourced food. The service is brilliant and the atmosphere is uber relaxed. I fell in love with the cushioned backed benches in here and the lighting they have installed. Food is super yummy for lunch with lots of superfood salads to choose from. Good decor and good food. Win-win.
The Ramp 855 Terry Francois St. SF CA 94107
The Ramp is a great outdoor cafe that turns in to a dinner/dance place in the evenings. Perfect spot to enjoy a couple of beers with some calamari. The views are wonderful, overlooking the mountains and the vibe is super chilled and friendly.
Little Giant Ice Cream 241 Sutter Street
This is the perfect little spot to sit and enjoy some ice cream to cool down. It was still unusually hot for our trip to San Fran and after a lot of walking around the city grabbing one of these stools and eating ice cream is heaven!
Split 560 Mission Street between 1st and 2nd Streets
The split is good value American food. We ate here before we went up to the golden gate bridge. As you can see the portions are big, which kept us full for the day and made sure we had lots of energy for our day of walking and hiking up hills in Sausalito. The classic chicken sandwich is the go.
Mystic Hotel. 417 Stockton Street, San Francisco, California 94108
Our hotel we stayed in was Mystic hotel and it was fab! Great value for money and nicely designed inside. It’s central, just off Union Square and the rooms are roomy for a central city hotel. It has a huge mahogany bar on the 2nd floor that plays jazz on the weekends, which is a nice place to grab a drink on your way up to bed.
If you’re heading over to San Francisco I would definately recommend all these places and I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
