Description
Despite clever jingles, San Francisco's most iconic treats are the chocolaty confections crafted by Ghirardelli Chocolate, a local institution since 1852. While production has since moved to their ... Read more
East Bay factory in San Leandro, the original Ghirardelli location in Fisherman's Wharf still stands as a popular attraction. Ghirardelli Square, complete with a number of boutiques, gourmet restaurants and (of course) the Ghirardelli Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop, is an ideal place to congregate. And on cold nights, relax by the outdoor fire pit and cozy up to a loved one and/or bar of chocolate.

Where you can get Ghirardelli chocolate samples. Domingo Ghirardelli was born in Italy, then moved to Peru, where he opened a chocolate store before moved to SF.

Cute and perfect for chocolate lovers. Not a huge square like Union Square but still fun to visit. Definitely more breezy this side of SF, as it’s near the water, so bring a hoodie.

Awesome view of the water and very family friendly area albeit the heavy tourism. I love the area and the chocolate is wonderful. Come visit !

This area is rich in history. It is where the original Ghirardelli chocolate factory is housed. There you can get the most delicious chocolate sundaes...YUMMY!!! The shops are all high end. To be honest, I do not really shop here so I would not know what to say about them. But I always enjoy strolling through this area of San Francisco. There are also many fun events held here through out the year!

Hang out with the family at the end of a day walking up and down Fisherman's Warf and Pier 39, watching the sunset over the bay. This is a great place to satisfy the chocolate and ice cream junkie in all of us.

No trip to San Francisco is complete without a sundae at Ghirardelli Square

It's had ups and downs over the years & seems to be on another upswing. The ice cream counter in a hidden secret not so hidden anymore...

Who doesn't like chocolate? We found new flavors that we hadn't seen in stores. Love our chocolate with our red wines.

There are plenty of food/shop destinations in SF, and I wouldn't necessarily say that Ghirardelli Square is a must-see.

But, if you're in the area, and love Ghirardelli chocolate/sundaes, give yourself some time for a nice stroll through the complex. A recent renovation has upped the appeal and look of the area, and the open plaza areas are beautiful on a nice SF afternoon.

Lots of shops and cafes to explore but also home to the famous Ghirardelli chocolate shop. The shop itself is very small but very busy so its a struggle to fight your way first to the shelves to see the products and then to the counter to pay. Worth it though as the sweets are delicious, if a little pricey.

Not my favorite square, but they do have Ghirardelli Sundaes. The chocolate has been thoroughly outdone by all the artisanal options. It happens, what are you going to do? Lots of neighborhood fun though. Buena Vista Cafe has classic Irish Coffees.

Ghirardelli Square has a little bit of everything! Of course, a Ghirardelli chocolate and ice cream store. A hotel, food, drinks, shopping & family events!

Ya gotta go here while in San Francisco. If your not going to eat there. You don't need to wait in the front line, go in the back where the store is. They give samples also
