Ghirardelli Square and Fisherman's Wharf (San Francisco, California, USA)


As a person who has an intense sweet tooth, I could not pass up the chance to visit Ghirardelli Square. I was too excited to visit the place that I went there with very high expectations only to be met halfway. The place is iconic and because of the cafe which is why people highly recommend visiting. But if you want to see something else (like what I did) you may be disappointed. The shops are too few and quite expensive and there is nothing else to see. 

We rode the cable car from Market Street (we had to make a short detour to Market Street after Pier 39) and we alighted at Fisherman's Wharf. We walked for a few minutes to the left side to reach Ghirardelli Square.

But, though there are only a few things to see and do here, the cafe was a must! I love trying out various ice cream shops around the world and I must say that so far, next to the lavender ice cream in Tokyo, this was my favorite. They really went all out with the ingredients so you get your money's worth. I ordered the chocolate chip cookie dough flavor and OMG! It was filled with Ghirardelli chocolate. Every bite was filled with crunchy and delicious pieces of Ghirardelli chocolate. And the ice cream itself was creamy. I was thinking whether to order the hot chocolate drink because it was dark, gloomy and cold that day but I decided ice cream was still the best for that kind of weather. I highly recommend.

  6. Going to the Ghirardelli store is really fun! When I went before I bought the fudge sauce, and that was such a good decision. I also tried out the ice cream too. I agree that it's disappointing that there isn't much else to see or do, but going to candy stores is still quite fun to me. I really like your photos! You're making me want to go there again haha

  15. Do ice cream and chocolate give you the comfort and happiness you always want to have? They have that kind of effect on me. Whyyy. When I'm sad and want to cheer up, I'll go for ice cream and chocolate. When I'm happy and feels like want to celebrate, I'll go for ice cream and chocolate as well. They kind of fit for all my emotions. Haha!

  17. Guess what, we then have that in common, the swet tooth! The pictures are very beautiful, really very nice, but I loved the one with the ice cream :) I never had lavender ice cream (not there, but you said, Tokyo), so I would stay with the one at Ghirardelli, with chocolate - must really be incredible! You look beautiful, really adotable, I loved your Adidas sneakers. Hope you have a very nice weekend!

    The ice cream looks delish! And the lavender ice cream sounds very heavenly! I wish I saw one when I was in Tokyo. I tried a Jersey milk and cheese when I was in Hokkaido, Japan. It was full of yum!
