When San Franciscans are out for a day of shopping and dining, they are often to be found uptown, enjoying the relaxed atmosphere of Union Street, San Francisco’s most charming street, where buildings have been preserved much as they were a hundred years ago.
Located between two of San Francisco’s most distinguished neighborhoods, Pacific Heights and the Marina, Union Street offers all the charm and service of an old-fashioned shopping street where you can find virtually anything you need from small bakeries, coffee shops, delightful garden cafes and fine restaurants to shoe repair, hardware, home furnishings,spas, personal services and health and fitness centers.
Encompassing an eight-block area from Van Ness to Steiner and down Fillmore to Lombard, Union Street is the “main street” of San Francisco’s historic Cow Hollow district. The street is renowned for its beautifully preserved Victorians and Edwardians now housing charming bed and breakfast inns, fashion and jewelry boutiques, art galleries, specialty shops and fine restaurants.
If you leave your heart in San Francisco it will probably be on Union Street!
