Talk about an amazing place to be inspired.
San Francisco was one of our favourite places when traveling. It reminds me a lot of Melbourne. There was so much to do, so much to see and around every corner was another healthy cafe or restaurant, just waiting for us to come in and be amazed.
We walked the city and planned our days around where we wanted to eat. We are foodies… it’s what we do!
It is safe to say I left San Fran feeling inspired, and ready to get back into my kitchen to create same magic.
Jane on Filmore – Pacific Heights.
After landing in San Fran, we went straight to Jane on Filmore for an amazing brunch. This cafe is known for it’s beautiful coffee and luscious food, offering everything from homemade pastries to smoothies or superfood bowls. I ate the black rice porridge and Mac had the smashed avocado on toast with a poached egg. We honestly talked about that breakfast for weeks later…. It was GOOD!
Project Juice – San Fransico (Located all over, we went to Polk Street)
Project Juice is scattered across the city, offering organic cold pressed juices, cleanses, wellness shots and prepacked gym meals. Even when you are traveling, it is important to have places like this to go to. We found Project Juice great for times when we needed a little pick me up, or just wanted to add some extra vegetables into our day. A juice was the easiest way.
Cafe De Casa – Fishermans Wharf.
We stumbled across Cafe De Casa when walking around. It is a brazilian cafe. The coffee is slow dripped Brazilian coffee made one cup at a time. Their menu includes Brazilian style gluten-free crepes, Acai smoothie bowls, salads and fresh juices.
Samovar Tea Lounge – Yerba Buena Gardens.
Head here on a beautiful sunny day and sit in the court yard at Samovar and overlook the Yerba Buena Gardens and waterfall. It is located just outside of Union Square and feels Japanese inspired. The salmon egg bowl with brown rice and sauerkraut was delicious.
Greens Restaurant –
We went to a place called ‘The Pub’ down Fishermans Wharf one afternoon for a drink, and got chatting to a local man and his son. After a couple of hours we asked for any suggestions for a nice dinner place. He sent us here, to Greens. This stunning restaurant overlooks the wharf and if you get there in time for sunset, you will be lucky enough to watch the sun go down behind the Golden Gate Bridge. The meals are all vegetarian or vegan, but don’t let that turn you off. The flavours are to die for and the atmosphere is like no other.
Co Nam Rustic Vietnamese – Cow Hollow.
After walking around looking for a place to have dinner, we stumbled across this Vietnamese restaurant. It wasn’t what we felt like at the time, but the food was to die for. We left here, satisfied and feeling great. All the food is so fresh, the flavours are insane, and the service is incredible. It is a busy little place so either book ahead or go for an early sitting and you might be lucky enough to grab a table.
Seed + Salt – Marina District.
Seed + Salt was another cafe that was on my must tries before I even got to San Francisco. Let me just say. it did not disappoint. This gem is everything you can want from a cafe. Plant based, gluten, dairy, refined sugar, trans fats and GMO free. Once you eat here, you will leave and your body will be singing!
I hope you enjoy the San Francisco wellness eats as much as we did. Share your thoughts and best wellness eats below in the comments.
