California Vacation: Part 1

I was finally able to sit down and begin recapping our California vacation.

We arrived in San Francisco late Friday night, May 11. It was only 11:00pm in California, but to us it felt like 2am...waaay past my bedtime! But I was too excited to feel it. We got our rental car and drove 20 minutes to our hotel. We stayed at the Westin St. Francis in Union Square
The next morning our first order of business was to go to the San Francisco Marketplace.

We had breakfast at Il Cane Rosso:
We ordered Strawberry Lemonade, Cinnamon toast, Fried Egg Sandwich and homemade yogurt with granola and honey...can you say "YUM?"

All was good, but I have to say...this wasn't life-changing. I'm saddened that I didn't just go get the homemade English muffin from Boulettes Larder, which they are very well known for. However, the real showstopper of the morning was the donut muffin from Downtownn Bakery and Creamery.
After breakfast we walked around back to the actual Saturday morning farmer's market and I couldn't believe all the amazing other food options out there! I wanted to try everything!! After that, we walked over to Pier 39 and Fisherman's wharf...more to come!

Sounds like an awesome start to your trip! I haven't actually been to SF in years. I think it's time for a visit the next time we're out in Sacramento.

I like the concept of a donut muffin! The frech toast looks perfect-crunchy on the outside, soft and tender on the inside! Makes my mouth water.

San Fran is such a fun time! The last time I went, we also stayed in Union Square - such a great location!
