    A great place to visit and explore all the different foods on offer. We had to go and sample the amazing ACME bakery and then got amazing things to have with this. Sat outside in the sun taking in the views so a great place to spend a Friday afternoon visiting the city.

    Loved shopping here.

    Of course you can get chocolate here but the ice cream is quite nice as well. A number of other shops are also available.

    Clean and fun.

    It’s a nice place to sit for a coffee, etc. surrounded by various shopping opportunities. A good photo op. Some homeless people settled there after dinner time.

    We live in Marin County north of the Golden Gate Bridge but go here all the time as I used to live in the city.

    I meet friends there, take my husband and college grad son there to get flowers, my veggies and Schiabica's California oils, especially their Mediterranean Medley!

    Then we have lunch at one of our favorites, Hog Island Oyster and get spices at Stonehouse California Olive Oil and Acme bread inside the Ferry Building.

    I take our dog when we can sit outside. How cool to see a guy recently propose there with his and her family. Lot's of applause!!

    This is a lovely shopping mall.
    What makes it unique is by far the spiral escalators, which are an attraction on their own.

    Nordstrom is an excellent chain and a great place to shop. The San Francisco shop is downtown and in a nice old building. Worth a look.

    Wasn’t quite what we were expecting but we had fun nonetheless. A decent assortment of shops, lots of restaurants, but dingy and stuffy. Some shops had good prices while others were very high. Daiso was probably the most fun place. Worth an hour or two visit if Japanese shops and food is of interest.

    Back when lots of people went to the office downtown, this office/hotel/shopping complex was hopping at lunch time and after work. Not so much anymore. Still some of the restaurants and bars hang on. And I think it is an appealing development from a design perspective.

    This is a great resource for the neighborhood as the fruit and vegies are fresh and there is a good selection, including some odd choices. The merchants are friendly. Office workers come here as well. Too bad the surroundings are so bleak.

    This mall definitely wins most improved award. On a Sunday afternoon the mall is crowded and vibrant. Mostly mainstream Mall stores, but a few unusual places. If you're into pokémon, there's an entire store filled with pokemon. The gadget store has the best selection of phone mounting devices I've ever seen, including amazon. And the food court, although almost exclusively Asian food, was decent. The mall appears to be clean and all of them all patrons are wearing masks, even though they don't have to.

    This open to the public flower market housed was more than I was expecting. We enjoyed an hour walking around and seeing the large variety of cut and potted flowers for purchase. I was a little disappointed that the cost for retail sale was more than at my local florist , but the variety greatly exceeded what the florist stocks. I understand everything costs more but was expecting a slightly better price. Definitely a place to go if you are looking for something specific both in flowers, vases/vessels, and ribbon - They even had black Calla lilies!

    I enjoyed a nice shopping trip to Nieman Marcus in San Francisco. It is close to Union Squrae. Since its the holiday season, they were starting to put up their holiday decoartions. Staff is nice.

    Kind of old fashioned these days, this is a classic department store on Union Square. 8 floors or so of shopping. It was quite the mad house on Black Friday. They have a discount store on the 8th floor that reminds me of a Walgreens, would skip that. SantaLand is on floor seven. Both designer and more affordable clothes and housewares spread throughout. Some nice deals in each of the clearance sections. They have a pretty good, but crowded food court.

    A quality store with many of your favourite brands. Although they come with a price tag, the products are typically high quality that don't wear out within months. Nor are they over the top fashion that need to be replaced by next season's new fashions.

    I saw the photographs of the rock stars from the 60's, including an upstairs pass to the orginal Abby Road photographs and more recent "pop" and political icons. The gallery staff were pleasant and low key with no pressure to buy. We were allowed to simply enjoy the display. They said they frequently handle this type of material.
