On Potrero Hill, you can relax in brilliant sunshine while watching fog engulf the rest of the city. Potrero Hill has its own pace and a feeling of distance from "the City." Potrero Hill's primary shopping district is on 18th Street, between Connecticut and Texas streets, along which you'll find quaint eateries, mom and pop shops and Farley’s, arguably the best coffee shop in SF. It is known for its views of the San Francisco Bay and city skyline, its proximity to many destination spots, its sunny weather, and having two freeways and a Caltrain station. One of the best kept secrets for many years, Potrero Hill was once the blue-collar home of shipping docks, storehouses, and the simple shops and bakeries frequented by the families who called it home. The big turnaround came on the heels of the dot-com revolution when many of the warehouses and factories in the area were transitioned into the live-work lofts and offices we know today. Among Potrero Hill's many assets, its sunny weather, fantastic views, and ready access to all highways rank high on the list. A hardy neighborhood, there are a great many early Victorians along its charming streets which remarkably withstood the earthquake of 1906. Eateries, bars and shops along 18th street are plentiful in options. You'll find plenty of shopping and grocery options close to 16th and Potrero. If you've never visited Potrero Hill, get ready to be romanced by this charming hillside respite.
