Brunch & Adventures in the City

This past Saturday, I enjoyed fun and fellowship with Pillar ladies on a beautiful day in the city!

Kitchen Story: 3499 16th Street, San Francisco, CA 94114

For our joint women’s group hangout, which happens every 3-6 months, we tried brunch at Kitchen Story in the Castro district. Our large group was seated fairly quickly around 9:30am after 30 mins wait without reservations, but the line got busier after 10am, which is expected for Saturday morning brunch in SF. The food was yummy, especially the millionaire’s bacon, but I liked the millionaire’s benedict much more because the french toast was too heavy for me.

Millionaire’s Benedict: Millionaire’s bacon, asparagus, tomato, Meyer Lemon hollandaise, served on ciabatta toast with rainbow potato ($16.75)IMG_20150711_103218

Mascarpone Stuffed Deep Fried French Toast: Served with mixed berries, real Vermont maple syrup, honey butter ($12.45)IMG_20150711_102931

After brunch, we walked to Dolores Park, Tartine Bakery, and Bi-Rite Creamery before most of the ladies had to go, but Rachel and Jessica were free to hangout until the late afternoon. We walked off our brunch, stopping by the boutiques on Valencia so that we could fit in Bi-Rite before making our way towards Sutro Baths. Together, we explored the city because I wanted to show Jessica who’s from Canada some beautiful scenic spots of SF!

Bi-Rite Creamery: 3692 18th Street, San Francisco, CA 94110

I can always go back to Bi-Rite for their honey lavender, but this time I tried their Blue Bottle coffee with almonds and dark chocolate too! ($4.50 for single scoop with 1-2 flavors)11737084_10153015702256453_105720069_n

Twin Peaks: 501 Twin Peaks Boulevard, San Francisco, CA 94114

It was such a beautiful day in the city with no fog and clear blue skies that we saw a 180° view from the Golden Gate bridge to the skyline.PANO_20150711_14412811737186_10153015702141453_344023820_n

Moraga Steps: Moraga Street at 15th and 16th Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94122

Rachel and Jessica had not been here before, so with the weather so nice, I showed them the other 180° view opposite of Twin Peaks from the Golden Gate bridge to the Pacific Ocean. Plus this was a bonus exercise to walk off the ice cream we just had after our already heavy brunch.11741881_10153015702076453_1085869604_n11733339_10153015702081453_895274173_n

Sutro Baths / Cliff House / Lands End: 680 Point Lobos Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94121

I have been here with family some decade ago, but I didn’t remember this place very well and kept seeing friends visit this place, so I thought it was worthwhile to visit too!IMG_20150711_16181111739469_10153015702046453_1703415798_nPANO_20150711_15554411721190_10153015701901453_667504790_n11719827_10153015701881453_2121123742_n11717041_10153015701886453_2017393317_n11716078_10153015701836453_1947476172_n11733299_10153015701746453_1668136032_n11719880_10153015701721453_1850286536_n (1)11741842_10153015701711453_1593854956_n

I had so much fun exploring the city with these two! We did a lot in a couple hours. It was such a productive day, seeing all these scenic spots and even climbing a rock by the ocean. I ♥ the city!

Adventure is out there, my friends!
