San Francisco
everywhere i go i try to figure out what the best coffee places are way in advance, so i come prepared with a map of best-places-to-get-caffeinated. blue bottle scored the highest on my wishlist, so we ended up visiting two locations. this one is at the ferry building marketplace, conveniently located close to hog island oysters for a nice dessert after all the oysters we could eat. i loved their flat white, but the line was so excessively long here, i wouldn’t recommend this place. much better idea to head to the top floor of the incredible san francisco moma for your shot.

we had literally been dreaming about eating oysters in san francisco ever since we boarded the plane for california, but the capital of gastronomy was the last stop on our itinerary. i think that’s why went a little overboard once we finally got there – we went to hog island oysters twice and had nothing but oysters and oyster chowder for lunch. decadent? why yes. delicious? absolutely. i still can’t look at these pictures whithout suddenly craving an oyster. definitely money well spent, and one of my favorite san francisco memories.
