Small square where local chocolate brand flagship store is located. Good place to stop by and have a coffee break (and a dessert if you are into very sweet chocolate or an ice cream).

There is not much to do here other than order something from the original Ghirardelli factory store. But the ice cream was delicious! Come here if you love chocolate or just want to kill 30 minutes of your time.

If you want to try all sort of Ghirardelli chocolate flavours you must go for. I had a great time and I tried the World Famous Hot Fudge Sundae. I really liked it. You should try if you get the chance while in San Francisco....More

Ghiradelli is synonymous with San Francisco, so if you're there, don't forget to visit and don't eat anything before ;) I did find the packed Ghiradelli chocolates cheaper in other places though

Love the place, festive environment, full of fun, lot to eat, don't forget to try the the world famous sundae, though you may need to be in a big queue, but worth it. Also you should not skip to buy some great chocolates.

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.
