To town some more clothes

Verena and I headed into town today to do some shopping, she has been travelling for three months and left her shopping until last!
I found these at Kate Spade and had to ask myself the eternal question, why a pineapple?

We wandered around and then got a little hungry so lunch happened.
Roasted heirloom beet, walnut and goat cheese salad eaten in Union Square.

Then we explored the shoe department of Macy's which is decorated beautifully for spring.

Macy's in Union Square is famous for having a Cheesecake Factory restaurant at the top, so of course cheesecake + Amy = have to see it!

So I (surprisingly) didn't have the peanut butter cheesecake but went for the original with glazed strawberries.

Verena opted for the dark chocolate Godiva.

The view from our table was great.

We even met some new friends at lunch.

After the cheesecake we needed to walk a little so we headed through China town (pics on camera) then we took the cable car, walked down Lombard street and ended up at Ghirardelli Square. I didn't eat any chocolate!
We saw a sourdough making demonstration and walked along the waterfront.

Then we climbed a few hundred stairs to the base of Coit Tower and saw the sunset over the bay.

We then headed to North Beach (little Italy) for dinner.

This trattoria looked like it was still run by a family and the waitress was so helpful and friendly. If you are traveling to San Francisco it is worth going to Sodini's Trattoria.
They even had table cloths that you could draw on!
