Cocktail Bar
$$
“This “unique” Fort Mason triple threat is a well-priced coffee shop by day, a bar by night for cocktails and light snacks (showcasing a limited-edition spirits program by local favorite St. George) and a museum-library combo that also hosts events by the nonprofit Long Now Foundation.”

Street Food Gathering
“Kick off your Sunday with a ton of food trucks that assemble on a grand lawn in the Presidio, with a view of the bay. Then take a nice post-brunch walk around what used to be a military fort that dates back to 1776. The Walt Disney Family Museum is right there, and you can catch a view of the Golden Gate Bridge nearby. This food truck round-up saves you from the stress of needing to reserve a table—just bring a blanket to secure yourself a spot on the lawn.”

Farmers Market
“The Fort Mason Center Farmers’ Market is held at this historic, former U.S. Army West Coast headquarters serving the Marina neighborhood and city-tourists alike. With over 35 Farmers and Food Purveyors, marketgoers discover the bounty of the Bay Area’s microclimates, the North Bay’s organic farms and the San Joaquin Valley’s finest harvest. This bustling Sunday market, 9:30am to 1:30pm, is the perfect place to find ingredients for a delicious Sunday brunch or picnic. Views of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco Bay are awe-inspiring.”
