A Beautiful Afternoon at the Ferry Building

When people from out of town visit, we love bringing them to the Ferry Building! There is just so much offered here at this beautiful historical building- food, snacks, local businesses and a breathtaking view! And for some strange reason, the last few times I’ve visited, the sun sparkled on the water.

Last week, we decided to eat burgers at the Gott’s Roadside. They have outdoor seating, which is great on a sunny day along the Embarcadero.  They also have indoor seating on those windy days and on those days you just don’t want to deal with the flying rats, the pigeons that is.  I ordered the Blue Cheese Burger, my hubby ordered the Bacon Cheeseburger and we all shared the Sweet Potato Fries.  I really enjoy the big burgers here, I especially love that they are served on a toasted egg bun.  And the Sweet Potato Fries dusted with chili spice are just so delicious and crispy, and you will love them that much more when you dip them into the house-made ranch.  One thing I didn’t get since I knew I wanted to save some room for my cup of Blue Bottle Coffee was the super yummy White Pistachio Shake.  Friends of ours ordered it and loved it!

Next stop, the long line at Blue Bottle Coffee.  We just wanted a little jolt, so we decided on a cup of regular drip coffee.  And yes, they were individually dripped by what I believe is the Bonmac Ceramic Dripper (at least it looked something like this),  not served from a coffee pot. It was a tasty strong cup of coffee, but I think that next time, I will have to try something else since I was waiting in line anyways.

I can’t wait for my next visit, hopefully we have out of town friends visit again so we have a reason to eat good and enjoy the beauty of the city!

Sweet Surprises!

When I got home yesterday, I saw a big bag in our mail, ‘wth is this’? I usually come home to bills and junk mail, we send all of our online shopping to work so I thought it was strange. I looked closer at the bag and noticed that it was from Blue Bottle Coffee! Wow, I haven’t tried this yet and everyone always talks about their coffee, the funny thing was, I was just telling my brother-in-law 2 days ago about how we haven’t tried it. When I opened up the bag, there was a pound of Blue Bottle 17 ft Ceiling Coffee Beans and it was from our friend Ray! While I was surprised with the Coffee Beans, I then saw a box on the dining table, ‘what is this, another gift’? WOW, it was a little box from Bi-Rite Creamery and there was 2 cupcakes inside! Turns out my sister dropped off a Salted Caramel and Velvet with Earl Grey Frosting Cupcake from Bi-Rite Creamery! I never tried this either and never knew they had cupcakes, I have only tried their Salted Caramel Ice Cream and love it!

Wow, I seriously came home to sweet surprises and now I am enjoying them for breakfast! They are both delicious and complements each other perfectly! LOVE IT, THANK YOU, YOU TWO PUT A BIG SMILE ON MY FACE! =)
