VeganMoFo: California Food Journal

Days 6 & 7 - San Francisco

After Santa Cruz, we headed back up to the city for one final weekend of eating and walking (pretty much what we do in San Francisco). Saturday was beautiful day and we enjoyed hazelnut flavored soy gelato and blueberry sorbet from Gelateria Naia while basking in the sun.
Our last night in the city, we had another wonderful dinner at Millennium. And for the first time, I didn't take pictures of it (unlike my previous three Millennium visits). It seems like every time we go there, John and I imagine what it would be like to have a restaurant like this in our neighborhood.
Sunday morning came too quickly, but we had just enough time to enjoy a bagel with avocado, tomatoes, olive oil & balsamic vinegar, and some spices with a glass of steamed soy milk from a local coffee shop in North Beach.
And we had to stop on our way to the airport at Maggie Mudd's for ice cream. They made my waffle cone fresh when I ordered it with a scoop of the reverse tarmack. John went for the seasonal pumpkin flavor. It was just enough to tide me over till I got home to Houston.

Okay, so hopefully no more veganmofo posts on the run.

With all the amazing-ness that you encountered in California, how on earth were you able to force yourself onto that plane to Texas?!

I would've stayed just for the freshly-made waffle cone alone!

I live an hour north of San Francisco, too far to drive for an ice cream cone, but Maggie Mudd's is so good, it would almost be worth it. No way I could eat at Millennium and have Maggie Mudd's in one trip -- too much filling goodness. Sounds as if it was a great trip and I know that the weather has been incredible.
Fun blog reading.

No fair! You get dairy-free ice cream out at an ICE CREAM SHOP? :( They don't do that here in SoCal! How sad! Lucky!!!
