The cookies at Hot Cookie are actually good, which was a bit of a surprise to me. Usually, places that are hyped up like this are just average, but my husband and I enjoyed our cookies. One of his was burned, which was unfortunate, but...More

This humble cookie palace has whatever you may be craving and more that you want but didn't know you wanted. The lines vary from short and fast to long and gratification-delaying.

The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San
Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart,
the Castro is a neighbourhood welcome to everyone. As
one of the first predominantly LGBT neighbourhoods in
the United States and currently its largest, it
remains one of the epicenters of activism in the
nation. Grand theatres and glitzy shops now compete
with bars and fashionable eateries for attention,
