Located at 599 Post Street in San Francisco near Union Square, Honey Honey is right around the corner from the Chancellor and a much more appealing option than the Luques restaurant in the hotel. My husband was somewhat skeptical about crepes for breakfast as he is not much of a "sweets for breakfast" person, but he was more than pleasantly surprised to see the incredible menu board filled with much more than sweet crepes. The Miami Heat - Cheddar, avocado, chicken breast, scallions, spicy hot sauce - had a smile on his face in no time as Liv changed her mind and went with the Banana Crepe with cinnamon and sugar. My son preferred a simple classic breakfast of scrambled eggs, toast and fruit while I chose the Crunchy Granola with fruit and yogurt. Coffee was ordered and we sat down to wait for our meal.Seeing a restaurant slowly fill with locals meeting friends and colleagues is a sure sign of "the place to be" and Honey Honey most certainly fit that bill. Within 20 minutes of our arrival nearly every seat was taken as even more customers streamed through the door, many greeted by name from those at the counter.
Talking to the clerk as we ordered, I discovered that Honey Honey is a family owned business and takes great pride in food quality and service. The pride most definitely showed as our beautifully plated food arrived hot and appetizing along with a broad smile from our server. Coffee was refilled as we all shared our plates with each other proclaiming every dish excellent all the way around.

Honey Honey offers free WiFi and is easily reached from Union Square. I can without reservation highly recommend this restaurant and only wish I lived closer so I might visit again. Honey Honey really is the place to be!
Fueled up for the day we made our way to our car and headed through China Town and on to the crooked part of Lombard Street. Billed as the "Crookedest Street in San Francisco", the beautifully landscaped curves of Lombard are worth a trip. Hoards of tourists stop at the bottom (the best photo op) for photos of the cars making their way down the crooked, brick lined street. For a bit of trivia, note that Vermont Avenue at 20th claims the actual San Francisco "Crookedest Street" Title.
Off through the Marnia District with the morning joggers I was a little disappointed not to see any kites flying on the greens however the views of the bay were once again stunning. The Golden Gate Bridge would have been visible had the fog not been so thick, but we still knew it was there.
Stopping at the Palace of Fine Arts I thought it would be Liv who would most enjoy the Exploratorium, a museum of science, art and human perception, but instead it was my husband who moved from hands on exhibit to exhibit, his face flushed with excitement. He and Liv made their way through the event gaining excitement together as they found item after item which piqued their interest. From electricity to simple bubbles, the Exploratorium can take hours of fun to get through without the kids really knowing that they actually learned something.
Wandering outside the Exploratorium through the grounds of the Palace of Fine Arts is alway a beautiful way to spend a bit of time. Sea Gulls flapped in the ponds as we meandered the pathways of the remaining grand structure built for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition. A popular place for weddings the theater also serves as a venue for numerous events throughout the year.
