On our first morning in San Francisco, we started the day with breakfast at Cafe St. Jorge and then headed to Haight Ashbury for some sightseeing and lunch.

Cafe St. Jorge is the perfect spot for a quick vegan breakfast in San Francisco. There were plenty of gluten-free options as well. I ordered The Famous Avocado Chili Toast made gluten-free with Bread SRSLY sourdough and a glass of organic orange juice. It was honestly the best toast I have ever had. I think the trick is that they drizzle it with olive oil which really adds to it.
Next, we went over to Alamo Square, only to discover it was closed due to construction. So instead we checked out the iconic Painted Ladies across the street. I really love the Victorian style homes so I really enjoyed seeing the Painted Ladies which were built between 1892 and 1896.
After that we headed to Haight Ashbury which is best known for being the center of the 1960s hippie scene in San Francisco. I loved how many vintage shops there were, one was so expansive that it had racks and racks of clothing by the decades. We also stopped by the RVCA store for Thomas to get some new shirts for the trip. Next, we walked around admiring the architecture and shooting shots of the atmosphere.
For lunch, we went to VeganBurg which was conveniently in the district. VeganBurg started in Singapore and recently opened in San Francisco. It’s all American burgers and fries, all made vegan with non-GMO soy patties. I got the avocado beet burger on a gluten-free bun with seaweed fries. I was hesitant at first about the fries’ seaweed seasoning but they turned out to be some of the best fries I’ve ever had. The burger was one of the best veggie burgers I’ve ever had. It was flavorful and I loved how the soy patty wasn’t too meaty tasting. So so good! Overall, it was my favorite place we ate at in San Francisco and I even went back for a second time on our last day of the trip!
