Homes for Sale
Homes in this area come in a wide range of prices, styles, and sizes.
Where to Live
The neighborhood is quietest at the top of the increasingly steep hillside. The flat northern part of the neighborhood borders the Haight-Ashbury district, which is a popular tourist destination. A two-block stretch of Cole Street contains almost all of the neighborhood's restaurants and shopping, but there are some small organic grocery stores on Stanyan Street. An elementary school is a few blocks from the center of the neighborhood.
Where to Eat
On Cole Street, you can have a casual breakfast or fancy brunch in the morning, and later great hamburgers for lunch followed by dessert at an old school ice cream joint. For dinner you can have sushi or upscale Mexican cuisine along this street as well. Because there are no restaurants off of Cole Street, Cole Valley eateries tend to be crowded so try to get there early.
What You'll See
oung professionals commuting downtown or walking to Haight Street for the nightlife is a typical scene in Cole Valley. There are nurses and graduate students heading to UCSF as well. You'll see parents push strollers or walk with toddlers out of coffee shops on Cole Street. Cars are backed up on Shrader and Grattan Streets and are full of parents waiting to pick up their kids from school. You'll also see children and adults play soccer and basketball up the hill between Shrader and Stanyan, and tourists from Haight-Ashbury and Golden Gate Park wander into the northern part of the neighborhood.
Friday Night Fun
You can have a beer at one of the bars along Cole Street or eat fresh churros while sipping on some tasty tequila. Since the neighborhood is fairly dark, hiking up to the top of Stanyan provides beautiful views on nights without fog. There aren't any theaters, galleries, or event spaces in Cole Valley, so grab some gourmet popcorn and enjoy a movie in the comfort of your home.
The Perfect Sunday
Work up a sweat playing basketball on the courts at Stanyan and Alma Street, or run laps at Kezar Stadium, the original home of the San Francisco 49ers. Put your name on the list for brunch and grab a bloody mary next door while you wait. Walk off your meal while admiring the ornately painted Victorian houses in the neighborhood.
