Insider's Guide: 24 Hours In Noe Valley

Yes, you can spend 24 hours in Noe Valley—it's very possible. Here is a quick outline of some of our favorite spots to shop, eat, and experience to our heart's content. Have fun and be safe, gang.


Philz Coffee

An SF mainstay, the Philz Coffee located in the heart of Noe Valley homes the families in the area and (the nicest) baristas we've ever met. Boasting comfortable seating and a cave-like dwelling, getting work done in this cove will be no problem to say the least. // 4298 24th St, Noe Valley,


Rare Device

Stocked at both Rare Device locations, you can get your hands on a Bob Cut Mag while also scoring some amazing stationary. If you needed an excuse, the makers of San Francisco choose this spot time and time again to sell their wares. // 4071 24th St, Noe Valley,

From being Panos' for a total of 20 years — flash-forward 17 years, the Gianaras family have reclaimed the space, with daughters Kristen and Kathryn running the show. NOVY offers a casual and affordable menu of California cuisine that is fresh, local and organic whenever possible. The Benedict menu runs down to the floor offering multiple options when it comes to stuffing, trimmings, and dietary restrictions. // 4000 24th St, Noe Valley,

Neighbor's Corner

Truly one for the locals, Neighbor's Corner is engaging their community with a series of Wednesday foodie pop up's. Aiming to feed the Noe Valley residents, you've got to try out their soup nights: ranging from homemade chili, What The Pho?, and much more! // 499 Douglass St, Noe Valley,


Uma Casa

Portuguese meals are meant to be shared—and Uma Casa on Church feeds those who come for a meal worth its weight in saffron. Not-so-fun fact: Until the end of last year, SF didn’t have a Portuguese restaurant. (Sad.) We're totally excited to be dining with one-of-a-kind dishes while drinking plenty of Portuguese wine and beer — operating partner and beverage director Nora Furst has prepared the menu to pair very beautifully with the dishes. // 1550 Church St, Noe Valley,


Upper Douglass Dog Play Area

Of course, we couldn't forget about our furry friends too. This park is expansive, out of the way, and made for dog lovers alike to bond over their best companions. Plus with a gorgeous view of downtown, this is a perfect date spot with your pooch. // 800-898 27th St, Noe Valley,


Mill Mercantile

Founded in 2012 as the women’s counterpart to San Francisco’s Unionmade, Mill Mercantile has truly come into their own as a retail space, establishing an aesthetic that’s distinctly Mill. With a range of select pieces spanning from the feminine to the tomboy and every shade in between, the Mill team strives to reflect the diversity, confidence and playfulness of their inspiring clientele in the select brands and styles. // 3751 24th St, Noe Valley,


23rd Street Studio

For our artistic readers who want to find their creative outlets in this neighborhood, look no further than 23rd Street Studio. The 23rd Street Figure Drawing Studio situated in a beautiful 19th century San Francisco Edwardian, the life drawing groups are held in a room approximately 560 square feet, with high ceilings, good heat, industrial carpeting, and 5 rows of track-lights on independent dimmer switches. There is a large raised stage for the models, surrounded by easels, tables and drawing horses, as well as two elevated drawing terraces. There is also a closet full of drawing boards of various styles and sizes. Let the inner artist in you explode. // 3747 23rd St, Noe Valley,


Crimson Kitchen

Looking to start your cooking persona? Crimson Kitchen is your ticket in. The classes at Crimson Kitchen cater to cooks of every level. They appeal to novice cooks but also offer a lot of information, history and techniques to cooks with experience. They take place in a private home, putting you at ease, to be in the comfort of an everyday kitchen. They are certainly a lot of fun, very interactive, and at the end the entire group sits down to a delicious meal. A win-win for all. // 41 Newburg St, Noe Valley,
