I had the BEST home fries of my life here. And lemon-ricotta pancakes. Seriously, this was some of the best food we've ever eaten. There's always a wait, but we've never regretted it. Put your name on the list, grab a coffee from Farley's up the block, and sit on a bench and peoplewatch till it's your turn.

An entirely unique place. A worker-owned cooperative grocery. They have every kind of whole-food, bulk, hard-to-find ingredient you could ever hope for--as long as it doesn't contain meat. A godsend for gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, specialty items. Also blessed with a glorious cheese counter and truly gorgeous fruits and vegetables. Also has a vitamin/bath/body/kitchen section that I regularly lose an hour browsing. A cultural experience!

Right in the center of Golden Gate Park; just beyond the museums, so parking is usually much easier. You can walk around the lake (it's about a mile), rent a paddleboat, or rent bikes. A good base for exploring the rest of the park.

It's glorious. Anywhere you enter the park, you're instantly in another world. The entrance near 9th Avenue and Lincoln is a good place to start--walk in and you're immediately near the Arboretum and the museums.

Great for a bit of exercise--Start out in North Beach and climb the hill up to the tower. Gives you amazing 360-degree views of the Bay and the City. There are also amazing murals up at the top, painted during the 30s.
