Haight Ashbury Food Tour

San Francisco’s famous Haight Ashbury neighborhood is most well-known for its hippie days, the 1967 Summer of Love and its wild musical history. This time we'll take you on a trip worth remembering through this innovative and nostalgic culinary scene on this Haight Ashbury food tour. You'll have the unique opportunity to explore Second Act's hidden garden where one of America's top cocktail bars sources its cocktail ingredients, to sample Russian piroshkis, and to finish with an exclusive dessert drink made by San Francisco's only soda jerks at an authentic soda fountain. What a delicious way to be a culinary insider!
