Hayes Valley Food Walking Tour
This walk is short, easy, and baby friendly. It is mostly for the sweet-toothed ones!
Start with this Carnival themed restaurant on Octavia. Get the sweet potato tater tots with blueberry bbq sauce ($5 or $8) and if you’re up for it, the Ringmaster: a burger with a donut as a bun. I recommend adding the bacon ($11.75+1.50 for bacon).
This beautiful sweetshop is worth the photo opp. But it’s well known for it’s french macaroons. And unlike most macaroons, these are not chocked full with dyes.
Our favorite: the Pistachio. If you’re up for something unique, try the Rose Germanium or the Chocolate lavender. But the best is to get an assortment for the group and share!
Smitten Ice Cream
Smitten offers the freshest ice cream in the world through the magic of liquid nitrogen. Just pick your ingredients, and it’s made in front of your eyes. Even if you are not up for a taste, come in and see the magic!
Blue Bottle Coffee
Blue bottle coffee is a bay area standby. They roast their coffee in vintage gear, roast and sell within 2 days. They take great care with the creation of each bag and cup. Try a latte or mocha for the full foamy effect.
Christopher Elbow Artisanal Chocolates
These gorgeous chocolates are almost too hard to eat. Try the Venezuelan spice or Caramel with Fleur de Sel.
Fiddlesticks (baby bonus stop)
Bonus stop: Fiddlesticks is an adorable kids shop.
