San Francisco: Day Two, Part One

In addition to getting to meet the fabulous Claire while up north (see post below for more details), I also had an incredible time exploring San Francisco! Although I am only an hour plane ride from SF, this was only my third time visiting and my first staying in the actual city.


My former co-worker, Michele, turned amazing friend, hosted me for a few days and we really made the most out of my time. To kick it all off we went to Haight-Ashbury to look around, do some vintage shopping, and have breakfast at Pork Store Cafe. It was a great morning and we had a blast.


I highly recommend Pork Store Cafe if you're in the area. They don't take names, you just get in line and wait to be seated in the tiny, casual joint. Once inside you notice that the menu is anything but small. I went crazy after finding that they have veggie biscuits and gravy! Since giving up meat, I crave this dish but never eat it. So this was a great surprise for me!

After a great morning, we were off to Land's End which happens to be San Fran's wildest and rockiest coast. I can easily say this part was my fondest memory of the whole trip. Words cannot even describe how beautiful the location is. Hopefully my pictures do it justice.


Stay tuned for part two tomorrow!

Veggie biscuits and gravy sounds (and looks) so delicious! Land’s End looks beautiful and I love that last photo of you jumping. This is random, but your coat and scarf are super cute! It looks like San Francisco was a blast so far :)
