How to Eat San Francisco: An Eye-Pleasing Food Tour Through the Mission District

Chloe Park, a designer and foodie based in San Francisco, took us on a tour of the Mission District where design meets delicious food. This is where she went. It's pleasing to both the eye and the stomach. Sorry, no burritos on this tour.

Sightglass Coffee (3014 20th St.)
From tile work that will blow up your Instagram feed to almond milk lattes that will perk you up, the ambiance in this coffee shop is a great place to start your day.

Foreign Cinema (2534 Mission St.)

The hype about the brunch at Foreign Cinema is the real deal. From the moment you walk down the long red carpet to the canopied patio, you're in brunch heaven. Here's what you need to order:

  • Organic "pop tarts"
  • Caramel pecan sticky buns
  • Beef sirloin carpaccio
  • Lavender baked goat cheese
  • Poached egg, duck leg confit
  • French toast
  • Balsamic fried eggs
  • And a side of delicious bacon

Tip: Pair this scrumptious meal with their breakfast cocktails like the famous Madras Bloody Mary or the Serpent Kiss. Be sure to bring your friends and be prepared for the food coma. You deserve it.

Dijital Fix (820 Valencia St.)
The perfect place to walk off brunch is to head right to Dijital Fix, a design-minded retro-styled shop for unique electronics, toys and accessories.

Tacolicious (741 Valencia St.)
When you've built your appetite back up, head down the street to Tacolicious, a popular place known for their tacos, tequila and sun-soaked dining room. Tip: Sit down near the front window and order the baja-style taco and of course, the taco of the week.

Bi-Rite Creamery (3692 18th St.)
Finish off your Mission food crawl with a delicious treat from the nationally known and San Francisco favorite, Bi-Rite Creamery. The flavor to get is the salted caramel. Tip: Skip the long line and head to the shorter line at the soft-serve window. You can get your salted caramel on a cone and dipped in sprinkles without the long wait.

That's how Chloe Park eats her way through the Mission. Follow her on Snapchat and Instagram.
