Willy Wonka lived his best life – am I right?! Skip the oatmeal and go straight for the full brunch. So go ahead; after the week you’ve had, you deserve it! This artisan food tour is the perfect way to have a walking brunch while learning the history of this off-the-beaten-path neighborhood and its most famous ladies. 

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • See Multiple Neighborhoods 
  • Visit the Painted Ladies 
  • Try “Fancy Toast” while learning the history of San Francisco’s most famous sourdough.
  • Learn how coffee is made while tasting a fresh brew
  • Visit a farm-to-table grocery store (how very Californian!) 
  • Taste the neighborhood’s most unique ice cream flavors 
  • Taste an artisan empanada 
  • Learn the architecture of the neighborhood

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.
