Walkabout Tuesday: City Walks with Kids San Francisco
There’s no more kid-friendly place to be than Noe Valley’s 24th Street on the weekends.
Between Castro St. and Church St., there’s a bounty of restaurants and shops to keep kids happy. First, settle on a place to eat. Sit in the front patio and dig into a basket of curly fries at Barney’s Gourmet Hamburgers (1; 4138 24th St.). Family favorite Savor (2; #3913) has a backyard courtyard and tasty crêpes. Holey Bagel (3; #3872) gives tykes free mini bagels. Peasant Pies (4; #4108) specializes in handheld pies. Grab a sinfully rich rocky road cupcake at Noe Valley Bakery (5; #4073). At Subs Inc. (6; 1300 Castro), indulge in a scoop of San Francisco’s insanely good Mitchell’s ice cream.
The biggest scene is Saturdays, 8 a.m.–1 p.m. at the Noe Valley Farmers’ Market (10; 24th, between Vicksburg and Sanchez Sts.), where tots boogie to live bluegrass and paint chalk pictures on the asphalt. Nearby, pick up unique, old-fashioned toys at The Ark (11; #3845). Relax and refuel at Lovejoy’s Tea Room (12; 1351 Church; open Wed.–Sun., reservations recommended) for kids’ Wee Tea, with a child-size spread of English sandwiches and pastries. Catch the J line at Church.
