San Francisco Treats
Collected by Andi Fisher , AFAR Local Expert
San Francisco is an amazing town for foodies and this is a collection of bucket list places that I want to get to (or in some cases have gotten to).
449 Octavia St, San Francisco, CA 94102, USA
Arranged like art—delicately layered upon each other and placed in glass jars along the wall—Miette takes candy displays and packaging to a new level. For the perfect gift bring home some licorice, cupcakes, artisan chocolates, and caramels in...

Bi-Rite's flavors are incomparable to anything you've ever tasted before. The rich, creamy tastes of Earl Grey, salted caramel, and lavender (just to name a few) are indescribably delicious. Hand-crafted flavors and baked goods set them apart. Go...

Pickup the best local food products the bay area has to offer at Bi-Rite Market. The Mission was not always the pantheon of San Francisco nouveau cuisine that it is today. Now, the area—especially the block of 18th Street between Guerrero and...
442 Hyde St, San Francisco, CA 94109, USA
Despite its tongue-in-cheek name, this sweets shop and cafe located in the gritty Tenderloin district is one of my favorite finds in San Francisco. The salted caramels here melt in your mouth. They also have a good variety of coffees from...
Ferry Building, One San Francisco Bay Trail #8, San Francisco, CA 94111, USA
Everyone seems to try the famous Secret Breakfast flavor, which has bourbon and conflakes, but it's just one of the many creative and creamy options at this Mission ice cream stop (which now has a new location in the Ferry Building). I like a...
3876 Noriega St, San Francisco, CA 94122, USA
This bakery just opened across the street from Woodshop. It’s a godsend. It’s been rough finding good coffee out here, but they serve Blue Bottle Coffee and breakfast sandwiches on house-baked biscuits.”
437 Hayes St, San Francisco, CA 94102, USA
While in line at Chantal Guillon, I overheard a patron say, "There are too many." Yes, there are many macarons in pastel colors lining the glass case and cafe. And, thankfully, you can buy a box of one of each flavor: Persian rose, salted caramel,...
2821 California St, San Francisco, CA 94115, USA
You'll have a hard time ever leaving B. Patisserie, and you'll know why it's been an over night sensation in lower Pac Heights. The open, modern space feels like something you'd find in the Marais in Paris, and the fact that you can view the...
746 Valencia St, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA
I'd seen the instagrams on Facebook - filtered pictures from friends of this egg cooked in a muffin. It seemed like the perfect breakfast - a runny egg in a savory muffin. It's called the Rebel Within at the Mission bakery Craftsman and Wolves....
801 22nd St, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA
I love the experimental name, Chocolate Lab, that brings to mind two mad chocolate makers (the Recchiuitis) dueling over creations, beakers bubbling over with—you guessed it—chocolate. This cozy café is known not just for its dessert, and the...
801 22nd St, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA
There's a chance you're already having an affair with Jacky and Michael Rechiuti's flagship chocolate store in the Ferry Building. Do know, that you're not alone. They now have- not one- but two other store fronts in the Dogpatch district of the...
521 Clement St, San Francisco, CA 94118, USA
The daily spread at this beloved bakery is the stuff of sugar-coated fantasies. Located in the Richmond District, Schubert's has been serving up a sumptuous selection of cookies and pastries for more than a century. The array of elegantly...
1441 Stockton St, San Francisco, CA 94133, USA
Italian cafés abound in San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood, but few match the quality of A. Cavalli & Co. Tucked away on Stockton Street, the former Italian bookstore serves a short list of housemade desserts: tiramisu, panna cotta,...
740 Valencia St, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA
San Francisco's Dandelion Chocolate is a MUST if you love chocolate. This bean-to-bar chocolate factory recently opened and already they have a following. In the small café in front of the factory you can sample different types of chocolate...
