Located on the waterfront and once home to large warehouses, canning factories, industrial buildings, shipyards, and wild fennel fields, Dogpatch has turned into a hub of local makers, artists, designers, and entrepreneurs. Just hop on the T-Third to enjoy the assorted retail shop and restaurants, or simply enjoy soaking up some sun on the waterfront.

EAT

Serpentine

Brunch at Serpentine is a local favorite. The line might get a bit long on the weekend, but the carefully created dishes by chef Deepak are definitely worth the wait. The well stocked bar with unique wines, local brews, and small batch spirits invites for some after-work chitchat or a cheerful date-night. 2495 3rd Street

Just For You

Even before Dogpatch landed on the radar, this cozy, no-frills, laid-back spot was a popular breakfast destination for lovers of old-fashion home-cooking and slow food. Indulge into the most important meal of the day with some eggs any style paired with pork chops, apple-sausage, or catfish on house-made white, wheat and cinnamon-raisin bread. Their beignets are legendary. 732 22nd Street

Piccino

Located in a bright, yellow Victorian house, Piccino is a San Francisco institution when it comes to fine, Italian-inspired food. We love their home-made pasta and thin crust pizzas. 1001 Minnesota

Gilberth's Rotisserue & Grill

While the eponymous owner Gilberth is creating Latin-fusion menus inspired by flavors of South American countries and interpreting them in his own way, his wife Julia sources only the best wines to accompany Gilberth's creations.

The Lab & Little Nib

Chocolatier Recchiuti has established The Lab, a restaurant that focuses on thematic tasting dinners in collaboration with artisans, farms, and craftspeople to create a unique dinning experience. If you don't have time to attend a whole dinner, get some chocolates from their store, Little Nib, right next door. 801 22nd Street

Marcella's Lasagneria

Simple in decoration and with only few tables, Marcella's will win you over with freshly made lasagna. Great for carnivores and vegetarians. For updates on their daily specials, we suggest liking them on Facebook. 1099 Tennessee

Nosh This

“Knock loudly if you want chocolate" says the post-it on the door at 326 in the American Industry Building. And you should. If not, you could miss the Bacon Crack, or the vegetarian version, the award-winning Almond Crack. Nosh. 2325 3rd Street, suite 326

Poco Dolce

Already a star in the chocolate sky, Poco Dolce is one of San Francisco's sweetest treasures. Owner Kathy started out in 2003 as a small bakery specializing in French pastries, but quickly discovered her love for hand-made chocolates. Since then, Poco Dolce has been famous for pairing sweet and savory flavors, creating wildly popular taste adventures. 2419 3rd Street
