Shopping and Dining in the Fillmore District

Enjoy a day of exploring the shops and restaurants in San Francisco’s Fillmore District with this itinerary.

2417 California Street

A good day in the Fillmore begins with a good breakfast, naturally. Curbside Café offers a variety of omelets, eggs benedict with cottage fries and French toast in a cozy dining room setting and their outdoor tables make for a great place to start your day.

2417 California Street

Start here for French fare such as croissants baked on-site and robust organic coffee. Unlike express versions of La Boulange, the Fillmore location, with its smooth, plank-wood floor and busy mezzanine level, serves the likes of frittata breakfast sandwiches and omelets made from scratch in the busy open kitchen.
