The cookies here are excellent and make for a great snack while walking around and seeing the sights. I had the S'Mores cookie which was probably one of the best cookies I've ever had in my life. Should've bought two!

The cookies at Hot Cookie are actually good, which was a bit of a surprise to me. Usually, places that are hyped up like this are just average, but my husband and I enjoyed our cookies. One of his was burned, which was unfortunate, but...More

Every kind of cookie imaginable--all delicious! We wandered around the district found the Hot Cookie and munched while we walked. The cookies were very expensive and worth every penny! You can't go wrong!

The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San
Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart,
the Castro is a neighborhood welcome to everyone. As
one of the first predominantly LGBT neighborhoods in
the United States and currently its largest, it
remains one of the epicenters of activism in the
nation. Grand theaters and glitzy shops now compete
with bars and fashionable eateries for attention,
