visit

Is the SFMOMA worth a visit? Is avocado toast actually good? What’s the best park to lounge in on a nice day?

A: Yes, yes, and Mission Dolores Park (a.k.a Dolo) and take our advice, don’t sleep in Yerba Buena Gardens. There’s something for everyone in San Francisco. Here’s what some of our developers think are the not-to-be-missed places to eat and visit in the City.

“Nojo Ramen (in Hayes); Mission Beach Cafe in Mission (good for brunch); The View (bar with good views, top of Marriott Marquis hotel at 4th and Mission); Top of the Mark (also bar with good views, top of InterContinental Mark Hopkins hotel).”
–Amit G., Product Manager
