The CompletEats SF City Guide
You’ve been asking and we delivered! We’re a Bay Area based company and have so much love for our little 7 x 7 city. Most weekends you can find us chowing down at some of SF’s great eateries or buying fresh produce at the Farmer’s Market. Read below for our favorite, healthyish recs-

Cha-Ya (762 Valencia st) – Cha-Ya is old school and features a 100% vegan menu. When you walk in, the ambiance is unassuming but the real fun starts when you get the menu and are overwhelmed with choice. Our go-tos are the warm soba after yoga class, the agedashi tofu or the gyoza. With beautiful presentation and fresh eats, you don’t even need fish in your sushi.

Gracias Madre (2111 Mission st) – Whether you’re vegan or not, Gracias Madre’s housemade tortillas are out of this world. We never believed that vegan Mexican food could be a thing – and then Gracias Madre happened. And this is a lot coming from two girls who grew up in San Diego. Must eats: jackfruit carnitas tacos, any margarita, enchiladas.

The Mill (736 Divisadero st)– A few years back, the Mill got some flack for selling a $4 toast and many skeptics pointed out this represented everything “wrong” about San Francisco. Don’t get us wrong, we were skeptical too. However, this is the best freakin’ toast you’ll ever have. Take all our money, The Mill. Our favorite is the Adventure Bread – a wonderfully dense nutty gluten-free bread (baked fresh ofc) with the Avocado Mash on top paired with Four Barrell coffee. You can thank us later.

Beloved (3338 24th st) – For some reason, every time we end up at Beloved it’s on a rainy day. Maybe it’s the intimacy of the long shared oak bar or the coziness? Our favorites are the Green Hulk Smoothie or the Red Velvet Bowl smoothie bowl.

Outerlands (4001 Judah st) – Outerlands is by far the best brunch spot in the city. Nestled out in the Avenues by the beach in the fog, Outerlands is always worth the trek. Sure, there’s usually a long wait but you can peruse the cute book store next door or grab a coffee. Our favorites? Levain toast, market greens & roasted potatoes* must inquire for vegan options.

Rainbow Grocery (1745 Folsom st) – Rainbow Grocery is a San Francisco institution and a worker-owned cooperative that first opened in 1970 by an ashram. It features all-vegetarian eats and you can find some of the best local brands in the city.
Also hit up the bakery aisle to find your favorite CompletEats cookie.

Ferry Building – You can’t come to San Francisco without a trip to the Ferry Building. Come on a Saturday to catch the farmer’s market or peruse the endless stalls hawking local eats as well as locally made and inspired goods. Take a walk outside on the Embarcadero and enjoy the view of the Bay Bridge. Tourist and locals alike come here and the people watching is 10/10.
Now that it's the weekend, what are you going to do first?
