Babymoon: seeking tips on hotels, food, enjoyable atmosphere

Weekend to San Francisco...  

We just find out we are having twins...so I want surprise her. 

 

We are probably traveling in then next two weeks January and are arriving on Friday Evening and returning home on Sunday. 

She really enjoys cute hotels and delicious food (coffee, bakeries, ethnic and farm to table foods, food trucks. She also likes the charm and uniqueness San Francisco and enjoys looking and perusing in small shops/boutiques.  

 

We will using the BART to move around, so if you can identify cute/ fun areas to explore, that be great. 

 

We are not sure where to stay and have access to all that I have listed.- your recommendations are much appreciated! 

 

Thank you for all your help!!!!!

I would consider an AirBNB or a hotel downtown. If she likes the charm of SF's neighborhoods, I would avoid staying in Fisherman's Wharf as it's super touristy.

For Brunch, consider:

  • Plow  and explore Potrero Hill shops while you wait
  • Zazie near Haight street shops (Great for brunch or dinner)
  • Ferry Building Marketplace - on Saturday has a lovely Farmer's market, good coffee, and a mix of food trucks. There is some space to eat and sit down, but not a ton

 

Other common classics are those that John mentioned.

Bernal Heights will have more kid-friendly shops, and several restaurants to explore depending on whether you do/don't want to cater towards your upcoming change. 

Hayes Valley around Smitten Ice Cream is one of the cuter and often missed areas in my opinion. 

Public Transit can be good here, but a Lyft Line or Uber Pool often won't run you much more ($5-8 total per ride), if you need a bit more of a relaxed ride.

If she likes farm to table, I would recommend one of the originals, Chez Panisse in Berkeley, for lunch in the cafe.  You can take BART to the Downtown Berkeley BART Station.  You might also like Delfina and Tartine bakery.
