Cafe Hop in San Francisco!

San Francisco definitely ranks in as one of my top favorite places in the world. There is always something for everyone: art, history, nature and food adventure. It can’t get better than this. As a Bay Area native, it’s been a pleasure to explore the nooks and crannies of the ever-growing café scene, something I am always taking advantage of, and one of the best things to do in the city is without a doubt- café hop!

Tartine Manufactory

Classic to its core, the new Tartine Manufactory sits in a 5000-square-foot architecturally stunning warehouse, with a big open kitchen to showcase the process of food making and a massive custom-made oven in the middle of the restaurant where you can see fresh loaves of bread being made. Wrapped in the same space, there is also a bar, an ice cream and a coffee roasting counter. It is an alternative to its original Tartine Bakery. The natural light filled space of Tartine Manufactory is absolutely gorgeous- with high ceilings, industrial chic design, and giant lanterns, making it bright and airy. Their menu is always evolving, from savory to sweet; you can really taste the essence of California cooking. Although it is a little bit pricey but it is worth every penny!

Mr. Holmes Bakehouse

Let me guess, you have probably seen pictures of Mr. Holmes’s “I got baked” pink neon sign or their esteemed cruffins at least once on Instagram, am I right? The crushingly popular bakery in SF is the sugary heaven for sweet tooth. If you do not know what a “cruffin” is, it is essentially a next level invention of cronut, a one-of-a-kind hybrid of croissant and muffin. It is soft and flaky with different flavors of custard filling everyday. Despite their opening at 7am, these cruffins do not come out until 9am. Stop by for a box of goodies and get your instagram picture in front of the sign!
