Telegraph Hill

Overview

Picturesque in architectural aesthetics, eclectic in vibe and historical culture, and vistas of some of the city's most breathtaking sights, Telegraph Hill inspires visitors and locals as one of the true memorable spots of San Francisco. Home to famous beat poets like Jack Kerouac, Telegraph Hill's artistic roots can still be found around the streets in murals, in conversations amongst locals at cafes, and in the very attitudes of one the hippest neighborhoods in San Francisco.

Homes

The community of Telegraph Hill features an array of home designs and prices to match a variety of price points.

Where to Live

Victorian-era homes, bungalows, and quaint cottages, with bloomed trellises wafting perfume through the streets, command a pretty penny for this upscale neighborhood. Though smaller homes are available, many demand and far exceed comparable living spaces in neighboring areas.

Where to Eat

Seafood, pizza joints, and authentic Italian restaurants, and, with deep immigrant roots steeped in the neighboring areas, Telegraph Hill provides a rich palette for foodies of all levels. For the freshest cioppina, try Sotto Mare Oysteria Seafood on Green Street.

What You'll See

A mix of professionals, bohemian artists, young families, and of course, tourists. Steep streets lead to exciting views and architectural gems. Free-thinkers take over the coffee shops, while wild parrots, descended over the years from escaped pets, flock from location to location and have become an attraction in their own right.

Friday Night Fun

Think rustic bars that reflect the neighborhoods strong ties to the arts, writing, and culture. Don't discount some of the coffee houses here. They keep fairly steady into the late evening hours and are a great place to rub elbows over a strong cup of java. Visit the Saloon, on Grant Avenue, for a step inside the oldest tavern of the city to socialize with easy-going locals.

The Perfect Sunday

Walk the Filbert Street Steps to the base of Coit Tower and view homes only accessible by the steep stairway. Coit Tower, a historical landmark, also has fresco murals of the art deco style. Visit City Lights Bookstore, a once favored spot for renowned Beat poets, now holds an eclectic collection of poetry and literature.
