I'm planning at 4 day trip to San Francisco in late September for 4 couples - we like great food but not a stuffy or formal atmosphere. We haven't been before but each fall we do a food centric trip together.
Wednesday night arrive about 9 pm - we might be up for a bite after - thinking of Foreign Cinema.
Thursday: Ferry market building - for bakeries and breakfast, take the cable car to Pacific Heights - either a casual lunch or To Go for a picnic - Out the Door, Swan Oyster Depot. We're staying at the W so thought close to the hotel for dinner - either Cotogna or Perbacco.
Friday: Dynamo donut for breakfast (my husband loves good pastries and donuts), pick up a picnic at Tartine for Twin Peaks. Dinner either at Frances or Flour and Water
Saturday - rent a car and drive to Pt Reyes, Healdsburg - lunch at Barndiva, then dinner somewehere on the way back - maybe Cyrus, Redd, Bottega - looking for somewhere more casual - preferably outdoors with a great view. We may stop at a vineyard or olive farm
Sunday - pick up at Greens for Presidio park, dinner at Cotogna for their Sunday night dinner if this is doable for a 9pm flight out
Are there good bakeries around the W? Is this a reasonable itinerary with good variety or are there better places to go?
