Brunch in San Francisco

Saturday, May 17, 2014

Being so close to San Francisco has definitely been on of our favorite parts of living in this area. A quick 30 minute drive or ride on the train gets us right into the heart of the city. We had a friend in town so we decided to head up today and knock a few more items off our bucket list.

 ^^Brunch at Mama's was first on the list. It was a 2 hour wait but completely worth it. I would definitely recommend it! We chatted with Mama's grandson and he told us all about the restaurant. It is amazing that this place has been around for 63 years. ^^





^^ Afterwards we headed up to the apartment building where our friend was staying to check out the view. It was pretty amazing! Funny side story, we looked down and saw our friends Emi and Chase from Well Traveled Wife on the basketball court. Small world! ^^

^^After a few hours of walking around and exploring we decided to swing by Bob's Donuts to try one of their famous donuts. I am a huge donut fan and this was one of my favorites! ^^




^^ We had to stop by the Ferry Building for the farmer's market. I couldn't get enough of this fresh lavender. ^^

  2. Hey! Love your blog - glad you posted this on facebook. A late night run to Bob's was one of the first things Chris and I did when we were dating! I'm pretty sure that trip was more important to him than meeting his parents. We love that place too.

  12. I love heading in to SF (we live outside Sacramento) -- it's my favorite city! We're headed to Oakland tonight for a concert. Not the same as SF, but it should be fun :)

  27. Ok, I am so adding this place onto my SF to do list! I miss good brunches. We live in the south bay and there's not that much choice down here :( How are you liking the bay area? We love it here, it really is nice being so close to such a cool city!
