Guide to San Francisco

A food filled weekend in the Bay Area

Dates: Wednesday – Friday in August
Accommodations: I stayed at a friend’s apartment in Hayes Valley and don’t have recommendations, sorry!


  • Flew in from EWR and arrived at SFO ~ 11:00AM
  • Worked out at Core40 – I loved this workout, it was a slower version of SLT

    Souvla Lamb Salad + Fries
  • Lunch @ Souvla – I highly recommend going here for lunch or dinner. Incredible rotisserie lamb, pork, or chicken that can go in a gyro or on a salad. They also have insane greek yogurt soft serve. Go!
  • Explored Hayes St – tons of cute shoppingRT Rotisserie
RT Rotisserie Cauliflower
  • Dinner @ RT Rotisserie – a great fast/casual option with good rotisserie chicken and vegetable sides
  • Ice ream @ Salt & Straw – an SF staple




Lands End Hike
  • Hiked @ Lands End from ~ 7:30AM-9:00AM. Great spot for nature walks that aren’t difficult but have beautiful views
  • Breakfast @ Jane on Filmore – I could’ve eaten every meal here, the menu was ridiculous. Loved it all, highly recommend!

    Jane on Filmore Chia Pudding & Almond Butter Adventure Bread
  • Explored Pacific Heights: a ton of cute shops on Filmore Street
  • Lunch @ Little Gem – a dairy, gluten, and sugar free health-focused restaurant. Wasn’t the best food in SF but is a good lunch option
  • Hung out in Alamo Park
  • Dinner @ The Mill – an SF staple with great bread and a menu of toppings (almond butter, avocado, jelly, etc). I went for dinner and had their pizza, which they start serving at 6:00PM
  • Ice cream @ Bi-Rite Cremery – my favorite ice cream I’ve had not in NYC. Got the roasted banana & malted vanilla; highly recommend!

  • Breakfast @ Plow – great farm to table restaurant with delicious breakfast. I loved the almond flour pancakes. Can have long lines so go early
