San Francisco Wellness Guide
Recently I was hunting online for fun, healthy restaurant recommendations in San Francisco, and I was shocked that there weren’t actually very many resources. So I decided to make a San Francisco Wellness Guide to share all my favorite wellness spots in the city, from cafes to workouts.
- Jane on Fillmore
- This is my absolute favorite restaurant/cafe in SF, hands down. I just went for lunch today and, as always, it was bustling, cozy, and delicious beyond words. The first time I ate there I promised myself I would try something different every time I visit because everything on the menu sounds (and in my experience is) absolutely incredible.
- Blue Danube
- The vibe here is very different from Jane: slightly cluttered, homey, and laid back. It’s the perfect place to settle in and do homework for an afternoon- with a mint mocha latte in hand, of course.
- Easy Breezy Frozen Yogurt
- This place is so cute! They have dairy and dairy free yogurts in tons of creative flavors, so it will absolutely satisfy a variety of eaters.
- Nourish Cafe
- Both the aesthetic and the food at Nourish are bright, relaxing, and inviting. I recently had brunch here with some of my BBFs (best blogging friends) and we sat outside in the sun for hours chatting and feasting on salads, toast, and smoothie bowls.

- Turmeric lattes and bone broth. Need I say more?
- Reveille Coffee Co. (submitted by @youngnhangry)
- Trendy AF cafe
- Project juice (submitted by @youngnhangry)
- Their avocado toast is out of this world!
- Urban Remedy (submitted by @youngnhangry)
- I’m obsessed with their macro bowl
- Native Juice Co. (submitted by @shakethatmarshmallow)
- The space, located in downtown SF, looks absolutely gorgeous AND they put a big emphasis on locally sourced ingredients.
- Rainbow grocery (submitted by @youngnhangry)
- Bulk bin of dreams! It’s like Disneyland for any foodie.
- BiRite is a small grocery store with a big focus on local food, organic produce, and absolutely incredible sandwiches. The Vegan Hippy Sandwich is one of my all time favorite meals. Their ice cream is also delicious, and they always have a couple vegan options too.
- Haight Street Market
- This is one of my favorite grocery stores in the city. They have an amazing cafe, tons of gorgeous produce, impressive pre-made food, and all the kombucha a girl could ask for.
- This Latin American restaurant is a hidden gem in Laurel Village. I haven’t found dishes quite like theirs anywhere else in SF, and I routinely bring family and friends (who always come away raving about the food). I LOVE their salads, and you have to be sure to try the plantain chips.
- I haven’t had a chance to eat here yet, but it is absolutely on my must visit list. An entire restaurant dedicated to vegetable focused, vegetarian food? With gorgeous views of the bay? Sign me up.
- Little Gem
- This is another spot I can’t wait to visit. The entire menu is gluten free, and all the dishes look incredibly original. And it’s located in Hayes Valley, so the ambiance is bound to be amazing, plus you’ll have plenty of options for dessert after. Update: I recently visited and can now confirm it is delicious. I ordered the bibimbap bowl and it was SO GOOD.
- Blue Barn (submitted by @youngnhangry)
- Their seasonal salads are always on point
- Gracias Madre (submitted by @youngnhangry)
- Vegan Mexican food.
- Seed and Salt (submitted by @youngnhangry)
- Two words. eggplant. bacon. And their baked goods are delicious.
- Plant Organic Cafe (submitted by @shakethatmarshmallow)
- All organic produce + sustainable seafood and meats in downtown SF.
- I am OBSESSED with BodyRok. I took classes there in December and fell completely in love. They have spin classes, reformer pilates, and some locations even offer yoga. The playlists are amazing, the instructors are friendly, and overall the classes are just so fun. I can’t wait until I have time to go back!
- Yoga to the People
- I’ve never been here, but I can’t wait to try it. They offer donation based yoga classes to make it accessible to everyone, and the space looks absolutely gorgeous.
- Running in Golden Gate Park
- This is my go-to workout. It’s free and absolutely beautiful. There is no shortage of routes throughout the park, so I never get bored, but one of my favorites is definitely running around Stow Lake.
If you find this San Francisco Wellness Guide useful, I’d love it if you shared with friends, and definitely leave a comment/contact me if you have any additional recommendations!
