The stretch of artsy shops, intimate restaurants, and friendly bars and cafes on 24th street makes Noe a great neighborhood to aspire toward. After all the 20-something artists get burnt out on burritos and beer, they can switch to nine-to-five work days, get married, and escape into cute, if pricey, Noe Valley.
If you can't afford to reside here, just visit on a Sunday afternoon for a taste of cozy family life and a trip into the San Francisco psyche of organic produce, smoothies, new age music and paint-it-yourself pottery stores.
Noe is a convenient stop from the J Church. Also along Church Street, the street has developed a unique flare over the last few years, adding more cute cafes, restaurants, bars and shops.
