Back when we lived in SF, there used to not be anything out in the outer Sunset, except for the beach, of course. Even then, Ocean Beach was always pretty cold and drizzly. Things have changed since then, there is a block on Judah Street, not far from the ocean that is home to a few pretty awesome places. Outerlands for brunch and dinner, Trouble Coffee, and General Store. The name general store seems to be a pretty common theme nowadays, but, General Store does an awesome job with a mix of designer home, apparel, bags, shoes, and generally awesome stuff. My favorite is their back patio with a little garden, greenhouse, and succulents galore.
And a hop, skip, jump away… a visit with our friends of Scrabbel.
