When in San Francisco this is a must stop as their hot fudge is the best. Many ice cream items to choose from to delight any sweet tooth. Close to Fisherman’s Wharf, a nice place to stop for a treat while walking around. Remember you...More

The Ghirardelli Square is a lovely place to spend an hour or two. Pop into Ghirardelli’s & get a free chocolate square or have an ice-cream sundae & sit in the sunshine. Beware, it is expensive ($27 for two sundaes) but they are delicious! You...More

We swung by because we were around the area. A little pricey but places to eat and shop. Typical tourist place but I wouldn’t go out of the way to see it.

There is a very good pet shop there if you’re interested. The chocolate and ice cream shop is average. Offers a good view of the sea with different cafes to choose from. We did not go to all the shops but it is highly touristic.

My wife had been to Ghirardelli Square years ago and loved it so she was very excited to take me and my kids. Evidently things have changed a lot and she was very disappointed. I was completely unimpressed. Sure the chocolate is good but there...More

We are so fortunate that Mr. Ghirardelli was better at chocolate than at gold mining. We are also fortunate that his family and corporate descendants have proved so talented at adapting to over 150 years of changing tastes and business cycles. This multi-level square is...More

Definitely touristy but they have some nice stores, restaurants and naturally the Ghirardelli ice cream and chocolates stores. It is the original Ghirardelli manufacturing plant.
