We begin our day in a San Francisco-based café with an overview of the history of this off-the-beaten-path neighborhood, all while snacking on a local coffee and artisan donut.
Feeling caffeinated, we continue our artisan food tour. We stroll down the block to the neighborhood market to look at the fanciest grocery store in town, Bi-Rite. Here we will learn about how chocolate is made and grab a few samples if you’re lucky.
Next, we head to another hotspot for some ‘fancy toast’ because no San Francisco artisan food tour is complete without some sourdough. While you snack, you will hear the story behind SF’s famous sourdough bread and the history of the Gold Rush.
Venture up our only hill (it’s not too bad – we promise) to see the historical Painted Ladies in Alamo Square. first, one to sing the Full House theme song gets a prize!
After a photo op, we’ll head down the hill, passing adorable boutique shops, to the cutest part of town, Hayes Valley. Here we taste a San Francisco-made empanada. for our final food taste, we head to an ice cream store that is said to have the most unique flavors in the city. We conclude our journey with a visit to a magical French Patisserie for an opportunity to shop locally.
