Let the Adventuring Begin!

2015/01/img_1556.jpg
Well, it’s been a few months in this lovely, new city, and I’m finally beginning to feel settled. Now that the house is in order and I know how to (sort of) get around town without getting lost, it’s time to explore! Over the next few weeks I’m going to be putting together my version of a Bay Area Bucket List, and checking things off throughout the year as I explore them. Leave any ideas for me in the comments, and/or any places you want me to see and review!

IMG_0145.JPG For Friday night date night, the husband and I headed down Divisadero in search of a place to grab a drink and sit for a while after unpacking boxes all day. We found ourselves in Wine Kitchen, a wine and tapas bar. The wine was amazing, we got a carafe of a local red (ok, we got two…it was date night!) and a few tapas plates to share. The herbed gnocchi and pork confit were amazing, and the atmosphere was lovely. Definitely date night material.

Eddie’s Cafe

Just down the road from our new apartment lies the little breakfast treasure, Eddie’s Cafe. Known for their fast service and vintage style mugs, this is definitely my kind of place.

We went on Saturday morning, so it was packed when we got there. To be fair, there’s only about 6 small tables inside, so “packed” is probably like 20 people. But thanks to the fast service, we got seats at the bar within 10 minutes of waiting.

Their charm is in these mugs. These mugs! They’re not vintage like cool vintage…they’re vintage like they probably went to 15 Goodwills and raided the mug department. The kind of mugs you’d find in the back of your grandmothers cabinet.

The Mill Coffee

Obviously one of the most important things to find in a new city is where you can get a good cup of coffee. And thankfully, that place is right down the street from me! Introducing The Mill. This little coffee dream boat not only makes the best lattes I’ve ever had, but they make this toast…

When you walk in, you can see them in the back making the bread. From scratch. Then they offer 4 different options of bread types and toppings.

We had to try a few different types, as they sounded amazing. This was the poppyseed bread topped with butter and fresh honey.

Any my personal favorite, the raisin bread topped with butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
