God to do a lot of what was on this list. Would also add paying a visit to Ghirardelli Square, it is the home to the original Ghirardelli chocolate factory, you got to see all the original machinery turning the chocolate.
Had the best chocolate shake of my life for dinner that day. Also, would recommend doing one of the hop on-hop off bus tours, we loved our tour guide so much we stayed on the whole way, she was incredibly knowledgeable about the city and its history, as well as incredibly funny. San Francisco has long been on my list of places to go. What I am not sure is if you can really do all of those into such a tight schedule. A full week would be more like it. The pictures on this post remind me why I want to come back to California and visit once again.
From the bus driver who left a packed bus of travellers he was driving to take us to the road around the next corner, where we needed to get our next bus from — to the old ladies on the bus in from the airport who sat and giggled with us, as we spoke about the difference between the english and the americans.

The one thing I learnt from my trip to San Francisco is that it is an amazingly culturally diverse city, that deserves time spent on exploring both inside and around the city. You make San Francisco sound great. Add in a visit to the chocolate factory TCHO. I love this Matt! This is going to come in so handy.
Thanks for sharing! Out of curiosity, what are some of your favorite SF restaurants? You mention a link to an external foodie list, but would love to hear some of your personal favorites! One of my favorite cities in the country!! They have a great film festival and good if pricey seafood restaurants, but the main attraction for me was checking out all of the gorgeous homes built into the hills.
There is no real estate monitoring and the doors are left unlocked….
Great list Matt! I love San Francisco.

I would love to go back one day. It is such an amazing city and has so much to offer. I had no idea it was a foodie city. Will be on that wagon next time. Some more places around San Francisco summarised at treadrightly. I was skeptical but this list really packs in a lot of the great things SF has to offer in just 3 days! This was super helpful! Will definitely be hitting up some of these places on our 2 day stay this June!

The videos are especially helpful and awesome. All of this looks so awesome. Thanks for all the tips. I have made sure I have noted them all down for our San Fran stay in a months time. So glad you recommended the Beat Museum. I went there in May and it was much better than I was expected. Now I recommend it to a lot of people. Yesterday I gave myself a walking tour of the murals of the Mission. It was unbelievable. It definitely should be on the list of things to see in SF. Mission Dolores, just a couple blocks from Dolores Park was also fantastic.

If you continue to use this site, you are agreeing to our terms and conditions. Their rice is also fresh and gluten free. This gluten free Brazilian restaurant in SF is relatively new, but they get it. The tapioca crepes, however, are gluten free and safe for celiacs — the griddle is dedicated for the crepes. Coqueta : Spanish tapas on the Embarcadero. Kokkari Estiatorio : Higher end than most of the other options here, but amazing atmosphere and food. While those are some of my favorite gluten free restaurants in SF, there are tons of other celiac-friendly restaurants around the Bay Area.
Jules Thin Crust Pizza : Separate prep area, and take cross contamination very seriously. They also happen to have Groundbreaker Brewing gluten free beer on tap. Mariposa Baking Company: While the location at the Ferry Building in SF is great, this is where the gluten free bakery started, and continues to be their baking facility. I highly recommend starting with a walk from SF across the Golden Gate Bridge and down to Sausalito, and a nice dinner here complete with maragaritas! One in Mill Valley, about 20 minutes north of San Francisco, super close to some of the best hiking in California on Mt.
Tamalpais and the Tennessee Valley and Marin Headlands, and one in the cute town of San Anselmo a little further north.

They make a variety of gluten free baked goods, including cookies, scones, muffins, and donuts, but the star of the show is their breads. The walnut sourdough and the brioche are outstanding, and are well worth the trip to Marin. I buy it in bulk and send it around the country to people who have had it while visiting me in San Francisco. If you come in, they might come over to talk you through the gluten free options and tell you about their approach and their food.
They have gluten free crusts from Mariposa Baking, and a dedicated gluten free prep space. Great option for gluten free pizza. Perfect lunch or dinner after a lovely Marin hike!
