Sunday in the City.

It was a crisp Fall Sunday, so I felt compelled to take a nice long walk over to North Beach, San Francisco's Italian-American neighborhood. As always, the breeze in Little Italy held wafts of rich roast coffee, spicy garlic and freshly baked focaccia, all tempting me with every step. I love this compact, cosmopolitan and very European neighborhood with its abundant sidewalk cafes and kitschy coffee bars. Here's a look...


Tony's Italian.


Fancy Ford.


Bakery Chef.


Boy's Club.


Caffé Chair.


Red, White & Blue.

Beautiful! I spent a lot of time going to bakeries and markets with my little Italian grandma and your photos remind me of how wonderful everything smelled.

Gorgeous photos--I love the juxtapositions, and they really give you a feeling of North Beach.

Walking around North Beach is such a great way to spend an afternoon in San Francisco - I love your shots. They remind me to get over there more often.

Sometimes we take a little picnic up to Coit Tower and enjoy the view from there. -h

I am an SF girl, but somehow your photos make North Beach look even more lovely. Nicely done!

so is Tony's Italian for sale??!! Reminds me of childhood...loved that hard salami, only in SF! My mom, sister and I all, always agreed that some things tasted better in San Francisco, like this salami and sourdough bread!
