Dogpatch is fast becoming one of San Francisco’s hot dining destinations, and it’s about to become just as hot as a residential neighborhood, too, thanks to the new condos for sale at 815 Tennessee. Each unit offers sustainably sourced, wide oak-plank flooring in hallways, the kitchen, and living room. Kitchens come equipped with appliances by Bosch and Liebherr, plus Blanco dual-spray faucets. The bathrooms are decked out in porcelain tile, accented by white quartz countertops and Hansgrohe fixtures. The site also has a relaxing rooftop deck, perfect for a weekend barbecue or a morning cup of coffee with a favorite read.
Venture beyond your condo to take in the amazing, ever-changing Dogpatch neighborhood. Brunch options abound, such as the Just For You Cafe that’s only a brief walk away. Enjoy the house-made beignets for the perfect sweet treat to pair with coffee, or go for the scrambled eggs with bacon, onion, and oysters, or even a chorizo breakfast burrito. Just For You won the San Francisco Bay Guardian’s “best breakfast” award in 2010, so it’s definitely worth a visit.
The Zagat-rated Piccino, also within walking distance, serves various breakfast pizzas, warm pastries, and scrambled eggs with tomato, corn, and squash.
Enjoy Hawaiian-style brunch at ‘āina. Try their taro bread French toast with strawberries and toasted coconut caramel or the Portuguese sausage hash.
Serpentine, also nearby, serves brunch fare such as breakfast tamales with eggs and pickled onions, pork-belly hash, and a fried chicken and egg sandwich on a biscuit.
The Museum of Craft and Design offers creative inspiration for all ages. Monthly design labs allow adults to explore 3-D printing, sign making, and embroidering pillows with funky designs such as constellations. The kiddos will enjoy creating their own board games to take home or crafting tags to personalize their backpacks for school. The museum’s gift shop is also the perfect place to pick up gifts for out-of-towners and locals alike, including everything from magnetic bike lights to mugs, rubber stamps, and books on the craft of cocktail making.
Get in a great full-body workout at Dogpatch Boulders, an indoor rock-climbing and fitness center. Sign up a bunch of your friends for a private group climb or go solo, climbing over 14,000 square feet of rugged vertical terrain without ropes or a climbing harness. Dogpatch Boulders also offers after-school and summer programs that help kids achieve better hand-eye coordination and general physical fitness.
Kids and adults alike will appreciate every visit to Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous, a unique ice cream shop that also sells homemade peanut brittle. Zagat ranks this spot as one of the best ice cream shops in the city, SF Weekly called it the best in 2013. It’s no surprise, thanks to the ever-changing, always unique menu that offers just 10 choices at a time. Flavors here are completely original, such as chicory coffee, buttermilk lemon, or bananas foster. Couple that scoop with a homemade waffle cone and consider yourself warned—you just may become addicted.
