Ate at McCormick & Kuleto's Seafood & Steaks, wonderful views of the San Francisco Bay and the trip would not be complete without a visit to Ghiradelli Chocolate! Beautiful at twilight, Ghiradelli sign lit up.

containing the largest number of upscale department
stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in
the city. It's a large open area where tourists and
locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by,
enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and

All of the American coffee shops are not coffee made “premiumly” as it may say in the window. Half of these places don’t even know how to use their machines properly. I come from a coffee industry background.
