Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

ELLIE'S SF GUIDE: FERRY BUILDING


I know that over the years, I have provided SF recommendations here and there but I wanted to start to aggregate them so it was easy to find if you ever visited this fair (and foggy) city.

So many people ask me how I got Ellie from Lauren because it's my Instagram handle. My middle name is Elizabeth so my first two initial are L and E, therefore you get Ellie. Get it? Cool. So here is the first official installment of Ellie's SF Guide.

Our first stop is the Ferry Building. Although there are lots of tourists mulling around, it is a local favorite spot as well. Here are the must-stop places at the Ferry building.

Stop by Frog Hollow Farms for their Orange Marmalade. I seriously can't keep a jar of this stuff for more than a few weeks. It is insanely good on toast and pairs nicely with a creamy cheese as well!


The mushrooms are pretty to take a look at Far West Fungi.


Love the home goods at The Gardener, which is way more than just gardening supplies.


Grab a ticket on a ferry to Sausalito for an inexpensive ride across the bay.




If you are getting hungry, stop at Cowgirl Creamy for a refreshing Arnold Palmer and the best grilled cheese you've ever had.






Need a non-tacky souvenir to bring back home? I love to stop at Heath Ceramics for the perfect SF present that doesn't scream SF. Their pottery also makes lovely wedding presents.




The flowers at the Village Market look like they've just been harvested from the field. I had a hard time not picking up more than one bouquet.



If you want the perfect place to sit outside and people watch, Gott's is the place for you. Although they specialize in burgers, my favorite is the ahi sashimi tacos.


I hope you enjoyed your tour of one of my favorite places in SF. Any places that I missed in the Ferry Building? Which place should we discover next?!
