San Francisco Adventures [part 2]

So remember when Philip took me to San Francisco for my birthday? Yeah, I know it was in February. Well, I was having so many problems uploading these photos. I was so frustrated and couldn't figure it out, so I finally gave up and forgot about it. Now that I have a better understanding of photo sizing and html in my blog layout, it was a piece of cake.

I wanted french macarons the entire trip. We stopped in every bakery and cafe looking for them. We asked every local that we met. For some reason, no one knew where to get one. You'd think with smart phones it would be easy to find something like that. Well, when you are searching yelp for "macaroons" and not "french macarons", you're not going to find them. When I finally figured out that silly mistake, we were off to Paulette's. Paulette's is in Haye's Valley (an awesome neighborhood new to our San Francisco favorites).
The macarons at Paulette's were fantastic! I had chocolate, cappuccino, red velvet, and rose... Oh the rose. I truly enjoyed every single second that I was consuming that little piece of heaven. We had to go back and get two more.

Bistro 69 is one of my favorite places to eat in San Francisco. I think the biggest reason is the location. It's on a little walking street where it's pretty quiet. The sound of the city was murmured in the distance. The only noise we could here was this guy belting out opera across from us. He was very good. It was perfect for our little lunch.

It was such a great birthday surprise. LOTS of walking and exploring. I hope we can go back one day soon ♥
