Terrific breakfast place a short walk from the house. There may be a little wait, but it's worth it, and you can grab a great coffee while you are waiting. My favorite is the Irish Breakfast.

The best burritos in the city. I recommend the Super carnitas burrito (pro-tip: order it Dorado style, not on the menu). Don't let the lines deter you, they go fast.

Arts & Culture

Very worthwhile to stroll around Chinatown and see the sights. You can see the more touristy shops on Grant Avenue, or you can get a little off the beaten path and look for Golden Gate baker and their egg tarts, the fortune cookie factory, and Sam Wo's. Admire the architecture, the back alleys, and respect the local residents who call this neighborhood home.
