An afternoon popping into small boutiques, grabbing a scoop of handmade ice cream, and drooling over an adorable wall to wall candy store is always a good idea. Hayes Valley has all those things and more! The large green trees provide shade for the pastel colors buildings and shops that line the streets of this awesome neighborhood. Patricia's Green in this area is a pristine urban park to enjoy lunch and the downtown sun. Must stops here are Miette Confisier, Smitten Ice Cream, Absinthe, Stacks and much more! Arrive at Hayes & Laguna to be in the center of the boutiques, eateries and a city style street beer garden.
