Our Field Guide is your road map to some of our fav spots in San Francisco!
Yacht Club in the Tenderloin? While this might have been unheard of five years ago, the up-and-coming neighborhood’s newest resident Liholiho is serving up Michelin-recommended eats at its sunny, Island-inspired digs. Plates include Tuna Poke, Roasted Octopus and Manila Clams with Coconut Curry. Photos courtesy of Liholiho Yacht Club.
If there was ever a modern SF classic in-the-making, this is it. Tucked in a corner of the always hip and happening Mission District, this pocket sized Italian food powerhouse delivers some of the most comforting and perfectly executed thin crust pizzas and small bites in town, enhanced by beautifully crafted seasonal cocktails and impeccable floral wallpaper accents.

We are big proponents of seasonally-obsessed restaurants, especially when this SF veteran comes packaged with film screenings. To say this is dinner and a movie re-imagined barely scratches the surface. Photo courtesy of Foreign Cinema.
Tartine Manufactory’s recently opened multipurpose space includes a coffee counter, ice cream shop and–of course–bakery. Tartine’s perfectly baked crusts and delightfully flaky doughs have received their share of praise and fanfare, and we fully stand by the dozens of people queuing outside every day. Dishes are served on Heath Ceramics, which also calls the Manufactory home, with its factory and showroom tucked around the corner. Photos courtesy of Tartine Manufactory.

Serving up flavorful, artisanal coffee and an edited menu of quality bites at its five SF locations, Reveille’s is perfect for every kind of morning, from creative brainstorming to a quick bite. Photo courtesy of Reveille Coffee.
A pop-up museum with 15 interactive exhibits, each exploring a different, single color, Color Factory has been a sell-out success in SF during its short stay. Don’t worry if you aren’t able to land tickets, the Factory is rumored to be setting up in another city after it closes late this year. Photos courtesy of Color Factory.
For some of the most exciting people watching in town, or just enjoying the occasional sunny afternoon in San Francisco, we’ll rarely pass the opportunity to spend a few hours at this Mission District gem. Visit Mission Dolores Park.
Beautiful and eerie ruins from the former glass and iron encased salt water swimming pools. While the original structure burned down back in the 1960s, you can still visit the site and look back on The City’s rich and unusual history. Visit Sutro Baths.
Tucked away on the northwest corner of San Francisco is one of our favorite in-city getaways, this natural wonder is full of breathtaking views of the Bay, approachable walking trails, rocky beaches, and nature as far as the eye can see. Visit Lands End.
One of our favorite spots for inspired community oriented design, this stunning space features a lovely garden in the back along with some of our favorite handmade goods, jewelry and apparel. Photo courtesy of General Store.
If you think you know clogs, prepare to have your mind blown. These made-to order beauties handcrafted by a skilled all-women team will change the way you look at footwear.
