On a recent trip to San Francisco I found myself spending the majority of my free time wandering up and down Union Street. Sampling the treats, exploring the cute hidden shops, perusing the incredible antique stores… It was the perfect lazy Saturday afternoon. A few things that caught my eye and I cannot wait to see again:
We stepped into this darling little bakery owned by two brothers to grab a bottle of water and ended up chowing down on the best cream puff I’ve had since my mom made her first and last attempt at creating home-made cream puffs over 15 years ago (more recent versions have sadly ended up being the Costco-bought frozen variety). Pacific Puffs located on Union Street is owned and operated by two brothers who noticed an abundance of cupcake joints popping up and decided to utilize Grannie’s tried-but-true Cream Puff recipes resulting in a cute little joint with simply 6 different types of puffs. Suggestion: the “Classic Puff” consisting of a freshly baked choux pastry puff filled with a light and sweet mixture of vanilla custard and whipped cream, then topped with a thick chocolate glaze. Mmmm.
Market flower shops literally adorn every single corner along Union Street, and the selections are always lovely.
By far some of the yummiest fish tacos I have ever had from Nettie’s Crab Shack in San Francisco – it was the two different types of salsa that made these oh-so-delish. Although my all-time favorite still remains: the grilled fish tacos from Pier 46 Seafood in Templeton, CA.
Scrumptious little “Christopher Elbow” Lemon Marmalade chocolate topped with a White Chocolate Lemon Ganache by artisan chocolate company Cocoa Bella. There was so many to choose from it was hard to pick just one.
Fell in love with this lone green bench overlooking the San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. Until next time San Francisco.
