  • Raphael's favorite haunts

    Whether it’s to show friends around, (window) shop, grab a bite, or have a drink, I typically visit one of these places every week.

  • Trou Normand



    Right around the corner from YBCA. Open for lunch and dinner. Great heated back patio for lunch al fresco. Great drinks too.

  • Artisan Coffee

    San Francisco is the home of artisan coffee, and by artisan, I mean queue-for-15-min-pay-$5-and-wait-for-another-10-min-to-finally-get-your-coffee. I recommend a Gibraltar, which is the name of the glass it's served in. Blue Bottle, Sightglass, Ritual, Four Barrels, they're all good. You can't go wrong.

  • Mr. Holmes Bakehouse



    New bakery located in the "picturesque" Tenderloin. they're known for the "Cruffin" but the passion fruit donut is also delicious.

  • Trouble Coffee


    Coffee Shop

    This American Life episode 520: No Place Like Home tells the incredible story behind Trouble coffee. Order toast while you wait for brunch at Outerlands.

  • La Taqueria



    This is America's Best Burrito. Order the Carnitas. Cash only. Long lines. Once you're done, go explore 24th st towards Potrero st.

  • Pauline's Pizza & Wine Bar



    This is my favorite pizza in town. Organic, locally sourced, and super friendly staff. It's a great spot for LARGE groups. A block away from Zeitgeist.

  • Hideout



    A tiny bar within a bar. Great cocktails. Cash only.

  • Rintaro



    Delicious, beautifully prepared Izakaya-style food. Mind-blowing desserts. Order the house-made umeshu. Not great for parties larger than four people.

  • Trick Dog



    Fantastic drinks and bar snacks. Right around the corner from Heath Ceramics, Sightglass coffee and Central Kitchen/Salumeria. A block from Flour & Water.

  • Unionmade


    Men's Store

    Unionmade carries extraordinary domestic and foreign brands. It's not cheap but quality of clothes is great. They also have a great magazine selection.

  • Mill


    Women's Store

    Sister store to Unionmade, Mill carries equally fantastic brands for women. It's a good destination to start exploring Noe Valley.

  • tugtug


    Kids Store

    A dreamy little store to find something for the little ones. A block away from the hustle and bustle of Valencia, TugTug carries unique kids clothing.

  • Billy Goat Hill Park


    Scenic Lookout

    Walk to the top of the trail and swing over the city. Best Instagram picture you'll get this trip!

  • Workshop Cafe FiDi



    If you need to get some work done during the conference–gasp–the Workshop Cafe is a great option near YBCA. $2/hr for workspace area.

  • Getting around

    The best way to get around SF is on foot or on a bike. Plenty of rental shops all around town. If you must use motorized wheels, Lyft, Uber, Flywheel are all good options. Whatever you do, don’t take MUNI.
