During my recent trip to California, when I was up north visiting Morro Bay, Monterey Bay, and Alameda, I also got to go into San Francisco with my family. Since it was raining more than we had originally thought, we decided to cancel our hiking plans and instead start our day at Fisherman’s Wharf.
San Francisco (and the surrounding Bay Area) is full of some pretty spectacular food. If you don’t like food, stop reading now because that’s primarily what I’ll be talking about today. (But who doesn’t like food? Like seriously.)
First up? Boudin Bakery on the San Francisco Warf. Boudin Bakery is known as Original San Francisco Sourdough French Bread. Established in 1849, the bakery has become iconic and they still use the same bread recipe today as they did when it opened.
Check out the top shelf. See the animal-shaped bread loaves? They make bears, turtles, crabs, alligators, and more.
This is my happy I’m-about-to-eat-clam-chowder-in-a-bread-bowl-face. I don’t make it often.
While we were in the area, we knew we had to stop by Cream for dessert. Because Cream is where all of your Ice Cream Sandwich Dreams come true.
They have dozens of freshly baked cookies and you can chose and combination of cookies and then those cookies are warmed up to gooey perfection before the most divine ice cream is squished between them. Choose a topping for the edges to be rolled in and you’re done!
What can I say? It was windy by the wharf.
Our last foodie stop was Philz Coffee. Their Mint Mojito is the absolute greatest. And I don’t say that lightly. I’m the kind of girl who drinks her coffee black and her idea of a “fancy” coffee drink is an Americano.
Imagine the most perfect iced coffee that is just the right amount of creamy with a slight tinge of sweetness and fresh mint.
This changes everything. I could drink a Mint Mojito from Philz every day and be perfectly content.
We ended up eating our way through San Francisco because it was too cold, wet, and rainy to do much of anything else. Even though our grand visions of going for a hike were dashed, I didn’t mind. The day wasn’t without its sunshine moments and everything was delicious.
Have you ever been to San Francisco?
