This place has great food to go if you want to grab a quick lunch at Market Hall deli, then window shop on College Avenue. It’s also a great place to shop for gourmet ingredients. There’s a very good bakery and Highwire Coffee housed in the same space.

Sailor's bar made from the bones of a whaling ship. Try not to spill your drink on the crooked floor. It’s in Jack London Square, which in itself has lots of restaurants and shops and is a fun place to stroll around right on the water.

The only Michelin two star restaurant this side of the bay, literally around the corner. Try the Sunday Supper, a three-course, prix fixe menu that's a steal at $58, including service charge.

Super fun way to get to San Francisco! It's a quick hop to the Ferry Building in SF where you can have lunch or dinner, go to the farmer's market there on Saturday, or stroll along the Embarcadero.
