/ Blue Bottle – the New Orleans iced coffee is everything that’s right in this world. The Hayes Valley location in smack dab in the middle of great shopping.
/ The Mill – for that $4 toast that I keep hearing about.
/ The Grove – these Berkeley Bowls hit all the spots. There is no shortage of delicious hippie food in this city to balance out the wine, cheese and bread that I inhale while on vacation.
/ Soul Cycle – got my sister hooked (which is not hard to do), after an all Britney Spears class. Pressed Juicery is conveniently located next door.
/ Hawk Hill – views for days.
/ Craftsman and Wolves – yes yes yes. This place was outrageously good. the chocolate croissant stack and market quiche were almost enough to make you forget Tartine is around the corner. Almost. I mean it’s still Tartine.
/ General Store – sooo many desert hippie vibes I could have stayed all day. The Pacific Ocean is a few feet away and this shop is stocked with the most perfectly curated treasures.
