We walked there because it was a big tourist area. Not a lot to see that we were aware of since they no longer make the candy there.

The Ghirardelli Square itself is really nice, and the chocolate store is quite a treat for adults and kids! Other than that, nothing out of the ordinary- standard shops and restaurants....

They gave us a free sample of chocolate so that was nice. They have some interesting food and souvenirs.

This place is amazing for chocolate lovers! They have very delicious sundae(s). Don't forget to buy chocolate gift packs for friends and family from the gift shop. There was a huge queue to get a place inside but it was moving quickly.

Unfortunately they were out of the chocolate chip cookie sundae I wanted to try, but this place is AMAZING! Honestly, it is worth trying at least once. The original sundae with the brownie was amazing.

Walked to Ghirardelli to get some ice cream before catching the cable car. It’s pretty busy but they do their best to get everything out. The more complex the ice cream the longer it takes. There is some seating, but not a ton. The ice...More

Stopped off here on the way back from visiting Golden Gate Bridge. A very interesting building with some nice niche shops, the best of which was definitely the Ghirardelli Chocolate Shops (albeit quite expensive). We were asked to taste some new chocolate cookies which was...More

If the Bart isn't running because it is early morning you can buy a ticket with Super Shuttle. We used the Bart to get in to the city.
