Crosshatched clouds in Marin. Cozy atmosphere at Farmshop where I always try to stop in when I'm in the neighborhood. The bottom left is a bottle of a favorite local Sonoma wine by Banshee that I picked up at a wine tasting at Little Vine.

Bi Rite is still churning delicious flavors like blueberry cheesecake (above).
Four Barrel for their Birthday celebration with free coffee drinks all day had me changing my latte order to a mocha complete with local Dandelion chocolate. With coffee in hand we headed to Tartine for a place to sit and breakfast with us splitting a ham and cheese croissant and this lovely little banana cream pie with chocolate shavings and the fluffiest whipped cream.
Urban Ore is one of those places that really feels like an urban treasure hunt. This reuse center sells building materials that make me eager to have a little more space, but also reminds you to restrain all urges to start hoarding. I love this moon poster and always look to see if it's still there.
This east bay gem is worth a trip over the bridge for a crunchy chicken sandwich with spicy coleslaw dotted with thin slices of jalapeno. The seasonal dessert was strawberry shortcake with the last of the summer/fall berries. We split a sandwich and then had our own shortcake... which I highly recommend.

Another Friday night at the food carts with a park bench view of the bay and Golden Gate Bridge at sunset. It was windy enough to crave hot food so a shared order of elote and loaded smoked potatoes was an easy decision. Elote translates as roasted corn on the cob, and Mexico is known for its version with sour cream or mayonnaise, chile powder, crumbled cheese, and sometimes I add a little hot sauce.
