San Francisco 2016: Foodie Spots I’m Loving

I had the pleasure of going to San Francisco this weekend to visit family – I always love the opportunity to spend time here. San Fran is incredibly diverse and has so many unique places to check out. It has a bit of European vibe, but a bohemian quality about it too. There is nowhere else quite like it!

These are my top San Francisco foodie spots:

For great breakfast/brunch: 

Boulette’s Larder: Find this gem in the Ferry Building. They have a delicious wholegrain oatmeal!

Tartine Bakery in the Mission: treat yourself to an almond croissant and coffee. Because remember – JSHealth promotes indulgence with moderation!

Blue Barn on Chestnut: great salads!


Jane on Fillmore: in my opinion it’s got the best coffee, plus great breakfasts and salads. I love their quinoa toast with avocado, chia pudding or homemade granola for breakfast, and their healthy Chinese chicken salad for lunch.

For quality coffee:

Wrecking Ball on Union: specialty coffee and they make a great version of my beloved piccolo!

Blue Bottle: this lovely chain has locations in San Fran and LA featuring delicious – and responsibly sourced – coffee. 

Jane: A great place to pop in for a great cup of coffee – whether you’re staying for food or not.

For lunch with a vibe: Bar Bocce. I loved their kale salad!

For a stellar wine bar: Cellar Door. Delish wine and small plates

For a place to work out: 

THE HILLS! Just walking up and down the neighbourhoods will give you a work out. We were staying in Pac Heights where the hills are huge! 

Soul Cycle


Crunch Gym

Pilates ProWorks 

For a phenomenal dinner experience: 

Delfina: great Italian food and wine.

Delarosa: their kale salad and brussels sprouts are a must! Great vibe.

Umami: some of the greatest sushi rolls – so fresh. 

More fun things to do: 

Visit Union Street – great shopping and cafes. 

Bike ride across the city – we took bikes and rode them across the Golden Gate bridge into Sausalito. Just amazing!

Cobb’s Comedy Club


The Ferry Plaza Farmers Market: so much fun to wander through on a Saturday.

Check out the Mission area for a hipster kinda vibe – great cafes, bookstores and galleries.

Drive to Napa Valley for wine tasting!
