Hi hi! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted on here, but I’m finally ready to share my recent trip to San Francisco! Here’s part 1 of a few posts I’ll be putting up over the next couple of weeks. 🙂
So right before Labor Day Weekend…I left after work on Wednesday night, arrived in SF around 10:30pm, and got to my cousin’s (Isabelle) apartment ready to CRASH. After quickly catching up, we both passed out hard. I got up and took her dog, Charlie, for a walk and got to see the Golden Gate Bridge again! *heart eyes*
I dropped Charlie back at Isabelle’s apartment and then left for the day. First, I stopped at Nourish Cafe for breakfast! It’s a 100% plant-based cafe, so I could pick anything/everything on the menu ~ which is always exciting, but can sometimes be overwhelming haha!
I went with the toast sampler and chose: Avocado Pesto, Cream Cheese, Mediterranean, and “Lox” (pickled carrots and red onions with herbs) as my 4 toasts. SO GOOD. I got an iced chai tea latte too. YUM!
After I finished eating, I walked over to Golden Gate Park – which is HUGE, so I knew I wouldn’t be able to see everything, but figured I could stop at one or two spots. I didn’t end up going to the Japanese Tea Garden, but I walked around the Conservatory of Flowers and then actually went into the De Young Museum.
I checked the weather before I left (and basically only packed pants, considering it was supposed to be low 70’s and I knew it would get chilly at night) and then there ended up being a HEAT WAVE. San Francisco was outrageously hot…like 90’s but feels like 100!
I went into the museum mainly to get some AC…. 😛 but it ended up being a really great experience. It wasn’t crowded at all and since I was alone, I was able to slowly walk around and really enjoy the art, without feeling rushed at all.
Admission for adults is $15 – but I walked around for about 2.5 hours and legit saw EVERY SINGLE EXHIBIT. Definitely worth it.
After the museum, I walked about a mile over to Haight-Ashbury to go to my favorite vegan spot…Veganburg! This time, I got the Smoky BBQ burger (vegan burger, vegan cheese, BBQ sauce, lettuce, onion, tomato, pickle, and a vegan aioli), a side of seaweed fries (fries sprinkled with seaweed flakes), and fresh mango lemonade. Everything was SO DELICIOUS. I would seriously eat there alllllll the time if I lived in San Francisco.
The next day I went to tour Alcatraz! So keep an eye out for more posts sooooon. 🙂
