Tucked just behind Haight street is a little, up-and-coming neighborhood known as Cole Valley. While the main drag is still fairly mellow, it has a bunch of great spots for drinks and dinner. Crepes on Cole is perfect for that late night nutella craving, InoVino for a nice glass of wine with a cheese plate, Finnegans Wake for a pint, or Zazie offers up mouthwatering French favorites.
Ashbury Heights and Buena Vista Heights are also great nearby areas to explore, but wear your walking shoes 'cause them hills are steep! While you may need to escape to the Haight occasionally for more stimulation, Cole Valley is perfect for those who prefer a self-enclosed community of clean-living professionals and their pets.
