Where to Live

Along the eastern border of Sunset sits the campus for the University of California, San Francisco. The single-family homes along 10th Avenue allow for a quieter, more residential experience. Those seeking to be closer to the action tend to live along Parnassus Avenue to be within walking distance of the university, while 9th Avenue is home to the area's wide selection of eateries.

Farther west in the neighborhood, an area known as Outer Sunset, one can find Mediterranean-style homes that run downhill to the ocean, allowing for incredible views of the Pacific. Although this area also skews residential, there are plenty of stores and restaurants along Judah Street.

Where to Eat

The neighborhood's culinary options are concentrated along Judah Street and 9th Avenue. Judah Street has a wide range of cuisines, although the strip is dominated by Chinese, Burmese, Vietnamese, and Japanese restaurants. There are also a handful of American-style bars, vegan restaurants, and cafes in the area as well.

Farther east, closer to the UCSF campus, are several additional restaurants along 9th Avenue. The options here range from pizzerias to African cuisines to Mexican. A popular neighborhood staple is Marnee Thai, which has been open since 1986 and continuously draws in large crowds. For a dose of comfort food, locals head to Irving Street where the family-owned Art's Café has been serving residents of Sunset since 1989.

What You'll See

Plenty of dining and shopping options - not to mention the beach - draw San Franciscans to Sunset on a daily basis. The neighborhood also has its fair share of dive bars. Sunset also has an elementary, middle, and high schools. Residents here also enjoy access to several parks, including the lush, amenity-filled McCoppin Square. Sunset borders Golden Gate Park to the north, where there is a botanical garden, conservatory, golf course, and the de Young Museum.

Friday Night Fun

Noriega Street is where the fun begins and is where residents enjoy a drink at one of the cocktail lounges, dive bars, and sports bars. Closer to the university along 9th Avenue and Irving Street are even more options, including Irish pubs and wine bars. The neighborhood also has multiple galleries and artists' studios.

The Perfect Sunday

Start the perfect Sunday by venturing up to Golden State Park and visiting the botanical gardens, de Young Museum, or conservatory. Wrap up your walk with a visit to one of the cafes along Irving Street or brunch along 9th Avenue. Sunset even has its own year-round farmers market on 8th Avenue, where local vendors sell a range of artisanal goods and organic food.
