I love being a tourist in my own city. I’ve been to the Mission District before, but hadn’t been in a while. With Tartine Bakery on my mind, a trip to the refreshingly cool neighborhood was due. After an amazing lunch (Three Cheese Tasting sandwich - one third each of Bellwether Carmody, Straus Cheddar, Idiazabal) and picking up a few Morning Buns at Tartine, discovering local art and shops through the streets was a nice way to spend the afternoon. Before heading home, a stop at Bi-Rite Creamery – conveniently a few steps away from the car – was completely necessary. Brown Sugar with Ginger Caramel Swirl ice cream? Yes, please!
