An amazing Bay Area resource. There are a million trails, fantastic views and tons of things to do in Tilden Park. And it's only 5 minutes up the hill (by car - it's a bit of a walk!)

The best pizza in the area, particularly if you enjoy thick crust/deep dish. Won't deliver but definitely worth picking up and bringing home if you're not going to eat there.

Very good, 100% grass-fed burgers. Lots of beer on tap and in bottles. Worth a try if you'd like a good local, sustainable burger! The fries are good, the onion rings great.

Essentials

More options here than Young's Market, though because it's farther it might be best to get there by car if you're going to buy more than just a few things. You can buy hot food, deli sandwiches, etc.
