After enjoying our treat at Ghirardelli, we strolled down Jefferson Street and shopped as we went. We made it to Fisherman’s Wharf and spent some time at the Musée Mécanique, located on Pier 45. Musée Mécanique is one of the largest privately owned collections of coin-operated mechanical musical instruments and antique arcade machines that are still in original working condition. It was so fun to see all of the arcade games that were previously played at places like Coney Island in Brooklyn. Jason really loved this place! A bonus: the stunning views of Alcatraz from the back of the museum.
It was an absolutely gorgeous day that ended at Boudin Bistro. We loved Boudin’s atmosphere, the views of the street from the bar and their food! We initially went in to have some drinks before dinner and ended up staying for dinner. We had sourdough fish tacos, pepperoni pizza with a sourdough crust and cinnamon-sugar dusted sourdough beignets. Are you sensing a common denominator here? Boudin’s big on the sourdough, and I’m not complaining! It was all delicious, but let’s talk about those beignets. They were so good and served with vanilla gelato! Jason and I agree, one apiece was not nearly enough.
