5 Must Try Places at The Ferry Building

June 28, 2017

Chocolate, beer, coffee and maybe even chocolate coffee beer are some of the treats you can enjoy at the ferry building, all with the Bay in the background. A popular destination during the summer (and yes touristy on the weekends), the Ferry Building is a wonderland where cravings are satisfied. A foodie haven. A 9 minute Muni rail ride from Trinity Place. Walk inside and try having just one treat. Below are some of our top recs, let us know if you agree!

Coffee first: what better way to kick start your day than with San Francisco’s best, Blue Bottle (available every day) and Sightglass (Saturdays, Farmer’s Market).

“Best clam chowder in the Bay” is quite a statement and one made by several Yelpers. Though a bit touristy and no reservations, Hog Island is still a must.  Clams, oysters,  yummy drinks to pair with (including a killer Bloody Mary), more clams and oysters, and a gorgeous view of the Bay, this is an island worth stickin’ around.
