San Francisco: Some of the Best Patio Seating

The other day I had lunch at Yumma’s on Irving Street, and after ordering our falafel wraps, my friend suggested we sit outside in their patio – which I had no idea they had. (I hadn’t eaten there for years). But it got me thinking about all of the wonderful tourists heading to this fair city which I call home, and so I decided to add a list from here and there of some of the best patio seating in San Francisco: 4505 Burgers & BBQ (705 Divisadero St.) The patio at 4505 Burgers & BBQ may seem a little unconventional  (it’s a converted parking lot), but that’s what gives it San Francisco charm.

Travel: San Francisco’s North Beach Restaurant Guide

I love living in San Francisco and exploring through the different neighborhoods to find the new it place to dine or a store to check out.
