I’m not really a going out for breakfast person because big American style breakfasts make me want to go right back to bed, but recently a friend was visiting and he loves Eddie’s Cafe, which is in our neighborhood so of course we went. I have to say that whenever the option is available, I do enjoy pork chops and eggs for breakfast.

The food at Eddie’s is no nonsense, affordable comfort/soul food.

Crissy Field is the most visited part of the Presidio. The former U.S. Army airfield, which is now a part of the Golden Gate National Recreation area, has been turned into an amazing public recreational spot where people picnic, run, rollerblade and such. We made our way to Crissy Field the other day because it’s always windy and we wanted to fly a kite.

The Mechanical Museum or Musée Mécanique located at Pier 45 in San Francisco is a truly magical place. Admission is free and the museum is home to “one of the world’s largest privately owned collections of mechanically operated musical instruments and antique arcade machines.”

Way back before I had kids, the collection used to be located in the lower level of the Cliff House over by Sutro Baths, but then renovations happened and in 2002 the Musée Mécanique moved to it’s current location in Fisherman’s Wharf. Being a local I don’t get out to Fisherman’s Wharf very often because TOURISTS EVERYWHERE, but now that I have kids it’s totally worth it to head on over with a bag full of quarters. I love this place and now my girls love it too.

It doesn’t take much to keep children engaged. I pick up cheap-y crafting supplies at the Dollar Tree or Target and keep then in a drawer that the kids can get into in the back. They never tire of using the supplies and their imaginations to make things. It’s pretty awesome.

Tortas at Mercado Urbano

El marido has been trying to get us over to Mercado Urbano to try their tortas for some time now and the other day we walked by while they were open and we were hungry so we finally got to try them out.

Mercado Urbano is connected to La Urbana restaurant as a sort of garage-style annex. I’ve been to La Urbana before and the food is what I would describe as interesting and innovative cantina-style cuisine, I loved everything I tried, but it’s a bit on the expensive side for me so not somewhere I would eat at regularly.

Mercado Urbano on the other hand is a more affordable, casual option where I can afford to eat regularly and I can even bring the kids with me. We’ve been to Mercado Urbano before for tacos on Taco Tuesdays, which I highly recommend because: CHEAP and so GOOD.

The tortas were good and filling at $8 a piece. As yummy as they were though, I think the next time I’d go back to the tacos whether it’s Taco Tuesdays or not because their tacos are too good for me to pass up.

Carousel at Children's Creativity Museum

Children's Creativity Museum in San Francisco, CA
Oh, you know, I tried to walk by the LeRoy King Carousel at the Children’s Creativity Museum in San Francisco with my two girls as if there was nothing to look at, but they looked and looking meant that they had to have a ride or two (admission let’s you ride twice). It was good old fashioned fun that never gets old.

The carousel was made in 1906 in Rhode Island with the intent of being installed in San Francisco, but then the 1906 earthquake happened. In 1913, after being in Seattle for a while, it did make it’s way to San Francisco, but in 1972 it was bought by a collector who put it in storage before it was moved and put back into use in Long Beach, CA in 1983. Then in 1998, the city of San Francisco bought it, restored it and put it in it’s present location at Yerba Buena Gardens where I hope it stays forever and ever.

The Office in San Carlos (Sundays In My City)

Normally, I wouldn’t suggest that anyone go to the office on the weekend, but that’s just what the fams and I did because The Office we went to this weekend is a restaurant in San Carlos, California.

Hubby has been there before with coworkers and wanted me to try it out. It was opened by Steve Hicks and Dave Parks who in 2010 transformed their real estate office into what is now a bar and grill kinda place where you can catch live music sometimes or watch a game on their big screens.

Apparently, it gets quite busy, but since we were there having an early lunch there was plenty of space available. The food was good with a bit of excellence thrown in here and there. Por ejemplo, we ordered the Buffalo Bites as a starter and they were AMAZEBALLS. Also my kids eat nothing, as in they like very few things (I know, I’m a total failure as a parent), but they ate with gusto.

Put Pie, our eldest got hot dogs and fries from the kids menu. Instead of one large hot dog, the kids are served two small ones which are cute. They still add up to a lot and Put Pie could only finish one. Our youngest, Luna Pie, got the kids chicken tenders and went to town on them. They have a great crunchy crust on them and she made sure we packed the extra to go.

I got a Cobb salad with grilled chicken and it was good, but I’m not going to lie to you, I would NEVER order it again. It just wasn’t great. I also got their Hibiscus Margarita and again, it was good, but I would never get it again. It was a little too sour for me and I was bummed because it was served in a glass that had just come out of the dishwasher. The glass was hot and even though the drink was iced, who wants an icy drink served in a hot glass? Not me. Hubby got a cheese steak with onion rings and loved both. I tried the onion rings and they are some of the best onion rings I’ve ever had.

I would totally go to The Office again. I’d love to try more of their starters because I could totally make a meal out of appetizers there.

Washi Tape from DaisoMade a run to the Daiso store at Serramonte Center to stock up on washi tape because when the zombie apocalypse happens I don’t want to forgo cute masking tape. In case you don’t know what washi tape is; it’s a decorative Japanese masking tape made out of paper that you can use to decorate just about anything. I use it to decorate my planner. My girls make art projects out of it. I’ve even used it to spruce up the frame on a found dry erase board.
