This spot is perfect for someone looking to get some work done over a coffee and a small lunch. The space is a little small for a group but perfect for a quick coffee.

I spent a week in SF for holidays, and Nook was definitely my favourite discovery. The food was amazing (try out the hummus or the cheese platter) and the locally sourced wine was exquisite, all at very affordable prizes. The ambience is good, the staff...More

We stumbled across this little café on-route to Lombard Street. It is a great little café serving a nice range of beverages and snacks. They cook a really good omelette. The service is friendly, the atmosphere relaxed and happy.

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
