We took the F-Line down to the Castro District, which is located at the upper end of Market Street. The lively Castro District is an area that caters to the largely gay and lesbian population. This neighborhood, marked by the Castro Theatre marquee, has become a symbol of gay and lesbian pride throughout the world.

The Hot Cookie Bakery located on Castro Street is a world famous destination serving some of the city's most interesting shaped cookies. It is especially known for its coconut macaroons



The Castro, in Eureka Valley, SF, CA. one of the first gay neighborhoods in the US & currently the largest. A work-class neighborhood in the 1960s & 1960s still the most prominent symbols of lesbian, gay, bisexual,  & transgender (LGBT) activism & events.


Built Dec 2008, a 7,800 sq ft corner where Castro & Market streets meet, half block of 17th, a turning lane onto Market & a small pediestrian island marked off. Bollards, chairs tables from Ikea, 11 granite slabs at end of streetcar line.

We had dinner at Cafe Flore. The Cafe has been the heart & soul of Castro since 1973. The house made beer battered onion rings were wonderful!!! Steve had a charbroiled grass fed beef from the Niman Ranch hamburgers. I had the flank steak salad. It was made with grilled Niman Ranch beef, organic mixed greens, fruit, Gorgonzola, candied pistachios, tomatoes and balsamic gastrique. It was a wonderful meal.
