The Bi-Rite in the block of 18th St near Tartine? How difficult is it to park there?

you probably won't find parking right on that block but if you have good parking karma we've had good luck on 16th and 17th near dolores or guerrero and some of the small alleys nearby and there's a parking garage on 18th between guerrero and valencia

When do you need to have breakfast? Bernal Star serves at 10am. Probably a decent lunch choice. But why do you need to stay on the hill for dinner? The #24 Divisidero takes you down to Market and the Castro et al.

thanks. i don't know the neighborhood and i'd just like to understand the options within walking distance. 10 am might be a little late most days.

I had a bf: wrong neighborhood. Glen Park has lots of good eating. Gialina on Diamond is one of my favorite, honest little restaurants -> super pizza and excellent protein plates. http://gialina.com/menu.html They do gluten free pizza. La P'tit Laurent on Chenery is good. For earlier in the day, La Cometa Taqueria is very good for Mexican.

 

The Diamond/Chenery area is full of decent small restaurants, plus excellent if pricey Canyon Market for top groceries and wine. This area is bustling!

Voyager, you mentioned a nice bakery in your neighborhood a while ago. I'd love to check it out to get ideas for things i can recreate or riff on gluten free.

There are two significant bakeries near us.

 

Arsicault on Arguello at Clement is classic French: croissants, kouign amann, pain au chocolat, morning rolls, tarts. Good coffee. And a line. If there is no line, they are either closed (at 1pm) or they have sold out which is often the case. http://richmondsfblog.com/2015/04/08/arsicault-bakery-opens-on-arguello-offering-french-pastries-with-a-heritage/

Note that this is an old article and new hours are
Open Tuesday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., Sunday 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Closed Monday.

 

B Patisserie is a couple of years older and offers a broader selection, croissants and kouign amann for sure, but also a large selection of sweet pastries and tarts. Sandwich shop diagonally across California at Divisadero. Closed Monday. http://bpatisserie.com/

 

These are two completely different operations, one a shoebox sized one-man kitchen, the other very professionally equipped and staffed, but both using the highest quality ingredients (you can smell the warm butter and sugar half a block away) and honest craftsmanship and personal devotion of the baker.
