Mission District Travel Guide
Hotels in Mission District
Set in an 1872 mansion, the 21-room property brims with authentic Victorian details—ornate woodwork; marble fireplaces; featherbeds—minus the chintz (not a weathered doily in sight). Don’t miss the rooftop deck with 360-degree views of the city.
Restaurants in Mission District
The izakaya Nombe—its name translates, roughly, to “drunkard”—serves haute Japanese pub food (grilled shishito peppers with bottarga; grilled skewers of chicken thigh with ume and shiso) accompanied by a great sake list.
Things to do in Mission District
Serious dairy lovers flock to the Mission's Bi-Rite Creamery for each day's soft-serve special (Monday, for instance, is coffee and salted caramel day), as well as hand-scooped ice creams showcasing local ingredients like Sonoma-sourced lavender and honey.
