    Ghirardelli Square

    The Domingo Ghirardelli family produced chocolate here from 1893 until the early 1960s. Now Ghirardelli Square is the finest of the warehouse malls in San Francisco. It has great views of the bay, landscaped gardens, and more than 60 shops and restaurants, including a delicious ice-cream parlour.

  • The Girardelli chocolate...

    The Girardelli chocolate factory - I'm not a big fan of American chocolate, but will make a big exception for this one! You can go round the factory and shop.

    Tip - Go early. It gets really busy.
    Great Chocolate!

    Again (see my other tips), something looking not very American, I don't know why.

    Once a factory, the old building, well preserved, is a modern shopping mall. And it is nice and harmonious.

    Next to Ghirardelli Square is the old Cannery. Similar in most ways, this is where Del Monte and other food processors used to can fruits and vegetables.

    Ghirardelli Square

    What is now Ghirardelli Square was a wollen mill in 1864, then Ghirardelli turned it into a chocolate factory in the 1890's.

    You can shop, eat, and take a self-guided walking tour.

    This was Chocolate factory before. It was all build of bricks, and it look like Pier 39 but smaller. There is a lot of small shops and little restaurants. I liked Pier 39 more than Ghirardell.

    In the Wharf area, spend more time around Ghirardelli Square than Fisherman's Wharf. It is a tourist area but on a nice day it can be a good visit.
