The Embarcadero Specialty

Specialty neighborhood
Blue Bottle
1 Ferry Building, The Embarcadero
There are now ten locations strong in the bay area, with cafés in the Ferry Building, Hayes Valley, Heath Ceramics, Market Square, Mint Plaza, and on Sansome. There are two locations in Oakland, on Broadway and Webster St. Perhaps the most groundbreaking of their brews is the chicory-spiked New Orleans cold brew, which comes in a handy single-serving carton. They also make a pretty great granola in-house while the SFMOMA rooftop location is home to Chef Caitlin Freeman’s modern art desserts. Think: a loaf cake made to look like a Mondrian painting and cookies inspired by Richard Serra’s sculptures.

Cowgirl Creamery
1 Ferry Building, Suite 17, The Embarcadero
Cowgirl Creamery is the brainchild of Sue Conley and Peggy Smith, ex-hippie chicks with a passion for good food (collectively, they've worked at Chez Panisse and Bette's Oceanview Diner). What's cool about CC's Ferry Building cheese shop is that they spread the love, stocking the best selection of local and international cheeses alongside their own varieties. Their triple cream Mt. Tam is the most famous of the bunch and it's delicious.
