Itinerary Help Please - 3 1/2 Days in SF

My wife and I are coming to SF for a short visit this coming Sunday - Wednesday from LA, I'd really appreciate any input on our prospective itinerary.


Flying in early, staying at the Huntington, so we figured we'd take the BART there, quickly check in and head over on the BART to the Mission area. There's a jewelry store my wife likes that apparently is only open on Sunday out of the days we'll be there.

We were thinking of heading to Tartine for breakfast/snack, shopping around the Mission district, possibly getting Delfina or Regalito for a lunch or early dinner, then shopping a bit more, ending up at Humphry Slocombe before heading back.

Is there anywhere else in the Mission area that's a can't miss for brunch/snack or early dinner? I tried Bi-Rite Creamery when I visited last, but I missed Slocombe.


I was thinking of going either to Dottie's for breakfast or heading directly to the Ferry Building to get picnic goods. If we get to the Ferry area early enough to beat the crowds, we might walk up to Pier 39. We have dinner reservations at Pican in Oakland, so we'd head over that way in the late afternoon.


Renting a car, driving up to Sonoma for wine tasting. This board has been very helpful for recommending wineries, so we were going to keep to the Sonoma/Glen Ellen area, and find somewhere for lunch in the Sonoma area. Any recommendations around Sonoma plaza? After some tasting, we would head back to the hotel area, I was thinking maybe Barbacco for dinner, as it's not too far from our hotel.

Wednesday: We have an early afternoon flight, so we were going to get breakfast at Brenda's French Soul Food.

Thanks for any input.
