exploring Russian Hill // casual basics

Happy Thursday!

For this week’s coffeeshop exploring we decided to stop by Saint Frank Coffee in Russian Hill, which turned into a full-on food tour around the neighborhood. Much nomz. 😉

The highlight of Saint Frank is definitely the minimalist interior design. Roof windows and high ceilings with a studious atmosphere give out a warm, uplifting mood. Buzzed on caffeine, our detox game was strong.

Wrapping around Polk Street I convinced Abel to come get salads at Blue Barn, our quarterly salad splurge. In exchange for dessert, of course.

Then there were the hills. I kept my end of the bargain and hiked up the block to Swensen’s, an old-school ice cream joint. I love Russian Hill, but no one can survive that neighborhood in heels.

I’m not gonna pretend that it was a hot summer day, you can spot Karl in the pictures yourself. But that didn’t stop me from wearing a summerish outfit, SF version. I love creating girly looks with an edge. But comfy always comes first.

  1. Love this post Melis, it’s right by my neighborhood! I LOVE Swensons but I am embarassed to admit I haven’t tried Blue Barn or St. Frank (insert red faced emoji here). Thanks for inspiring me to get it together! Love the shots, and hope you’re having a good week!
