Tips from locals
Heaven for chocolate lovers like me! check it out and get a hot or cold cocoa drink and your favorite chocolate desert here
Fantastic place for BIG desserts! The Ghirardelli Chocolate Company is a United States division of Swiss confectioner Lindt & Sprüngli. The company was founded by and is named after Italian chocolatier Domenico Ghirardelli, who, after working in South America, moved to California.
Free chocolate sample when you walk in the store :) Order one of their decadent ice creams and enjoy it by the water!
See how the chocolate is made! The famous Ghirardelli chocolate started here and there's a demonstration area and yummy chocolate, ice cream and more! After, take a walk in Aquatic Park.
If you have time, I would recommend heading to Ghirardelli Square to have a warm cup of Hot Chocolate.
Chocolate, of course but so much more! A brewery, cheese shop/restaurant where you can build an elegant picnic, arcade and SF mini golf. Walk the area around too, beautiful homes and the Marina.
If you are in Fisherman's Wharf in SF, you'll need to visit Ghirardelli. It is famous for their Excellent ice cream and chocolate.
This is a short walk west from Fisherman’s Wharf. Originally, it was the factory for Ghirardelli Chocolates. Now converted into shops and restaurants. While you are there, you can stop by the Ghirardelli shop for an ice cream sundae or hot chocolate
