San Francisco City Guide

In Volume 4 of In Clover, our team takes you down the west coast of North America. Sadly, there wasn't enough room for a San Francisco City Guide. Not wanting the photos or discoveries to go to waste, we've decided to share them here with all of you!

San Francisco had been one of the first cities we wrote down on our list of stops for our West Coast road trip. I'd been there before when I was fifteen and it has remained one of my favourite trips since. The food, the air, the music, it was an infectious city that just made you want to relax and enjoy what it has to offer. Below is a list of some of our favourite finds from our last trip, we hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

Shopping

1. little paper planes shop 

I actually found this shop listed on a brilliant city guide by On A Hazy Morning. It proved to be a good suggestion as I wanted almost everything in the shop! 

2. cuyana

I've been a fan and customer of Cuyana for about four years now so their showroom in San Francisco was at the top of my list. An American-based brand, Cuyana is a collection of timeless pieces for women at an affordable price, of high quality, made in an honest way. 

3. Decades of fashion 

As one of the most infamous streets in the city, there's no doubt that you'll be making a visit to the Haight on your first trip to San Francisco. Decades of Fashion is pictured above and as you can see it's a treasure trove of fashion finds.

4. everlane

If you haven't heard of Everlane before I encourage you to check out their instagram. On Tuesdays, they celebrate Transparency Tuesdays where they answer customers questions on their clothing, how they make it and what's to come on Instagram Stories. 

Food

1. Tacolicious

One of the few downsides to living in the UK is the lack of access to good Mexican food. So whenever I'm back in the states I always make sure to have some. The tacos along with the brussels sprouts were to die for!

2. The Progress

This was one of the best dining experiences of my life. There's not much more I can say, from the effortless and impeccable customer service to the mouthwatering and inventive dishes we ordered. The Progress didn't miss a step. 

3. Wise Sons jewish deli

The west coast is known for their bread, and the Wise Sons bagels live up to that stereotype. The Challah French Toast is also a must have if you're in the mood for something sweeter.

4. Stable cafe

If you're looking for a great brunch spot that has a lovely outdoor area this farm to table restaurant has you sorted!

coffee

1.four barrel coffee

Not only is their coffee my favourite in the city, but the Valencia St location is a beautiful space (with a roastery in the back) to hang out during the day and get some work done. 

2. Sightglass coffee

Probably my second favourite coffee in San Francisco was the beautiful brews at Sightglass. Just around the corner from Wise Sons, it was usually one of our first stops of the day.

3. paramo coffee

Many will tell you that Blue Bottle is one of the best coffee's in town. The only problem is, the queues that come along with such notoriety. Paramo Coffee was one of the better finds in the Financial District and if nothing else the interior is beaut.

4. Mazarine coffee

Mazarine Coffee has a bit of something for everyone, with a selection of the best coffees and teas from the Bay area this is a one stop shop!
