Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

    Is this a tourist attraction? Probably not, but it is probably the best hardware store in San Francisco and maybe one of the most unique stores in the US. Explore and maybe buy something. Great at Halloween.

    Was strolling around Hayes Valley and discovered the MMclay Ceramics Airstream. Splurge and buy something for yourself....everything is exquisite!

    I'm not sure where to start, we were only in SF for 2 days and spent a lot of time at the lounge both days. All of the budtenders were so welcoming and helpful. This was my favorite part of our trip.

    I want to give a HUGE shout out to Dale! Dale is really freaking awesome. As a SF native, he is a treasure chest full of must-do things in the area. He should be considered a cannabis concierge. Dale, thank you for making our trip so much more awesome than it already was!!

    We were in the Golden Gate Park and realized Amoeba was next door so we visited. Wow this place has everything from CDs to vinyl to movies to action figures and posters. Vinyl collectors will be in heaven with this immense selection. Definitely a go to spot for that hard to find album or movie.

    A very good experience in the restaurant upstairs. Need to book otherwise you will need to wait during busy mealtimes. Service was good. Calamari is a very ample portion so good to share as a starter. Ribeye steak and the steak mignon was perfectly cooked and very tasty. Recommend.

    If strolling around San Francisco’s China Town, it is worth the stop. The line is short and staff will hand you an unrolled warm cookie. Not a big fortune cookie person but it was delicious and we ended up buying some chocolate covered fortune cookies.

    For me, I am an equal fan and patron of both Moe Greens and Barbary Coast. All staff, (security TOTALLY included) are both laid-back and helpful, a nice combo. Moe Greens is my right hand dispensary, meaning when I have a bit of discretionary funds and feel like a walk to the weed store (which will ALWAYS give me a thrill to say!) I combine it with a practical errand to round things out. When I do this, if my errand requires me to go left when I exit my building, I go to Barbary Coast, and to my right I head for Moe Greens. I am glad for the existence of both, may I never have to choose between them.

    We learned important tips on how to properly steep tea and the benefits. I was just along with my friend who wanted to pick up tea while we were in town. We both got to try different teas, some we were interested in and some other people were trying. We both ended up buying more tea than we planned and are very happy we did. The woman who was giving the tea and information was very knowledgeable and nice. I am so glad we went!

    Step back into another world of old time favorites with a side of historic buildings with an added touch of water on the pier. We had fun trying coffees, ice cream that was vegan and candy canes on a stick

    I went to Fog City News, which is on Market Street, to purchase some greeting cards. It is a well run store and has other items like magazines etc.

    Wonderful bookstore - a fixture in Richmond since 1967. Has an annex a few doors down too. A treasure hunt of a bookstore - leave lots of time to linger!

    Oh, La La! We walked into the divine chocolate emporium today - heavenly! My pals had just enjoyed ( adored) a chocolate making class on Zoom! They were all so enthusiastic…wildly so..so we drove to North Beach …actually got street parking (miracle) and entered heaven…who Knew!? So many decadent flavors of fudge and an array of sweets.
    Could not resist: had to buy the state of California in chocolate! And a few various yummy fudges…yes, plural.
    Mike Z, the charming owner is a delight! Great guy.
    Eureka!

    We came inside after window shopping around Pier 39, we looked at all of the fun old fashioned candy, purchased some of the Salt Water Taffy, which was reasonably priced, this was a fun stop to get out of the wind for a few minutes

    Pay attention to the warning notes before you try their peppers. I got very close to trying their hottest one, but a lucky fellow tried it before me... They had to call an ambulance! If you love pepper, this is the right place.! Everything you want to know about pepper is there! I recommend!
