This is a fabulous place to spend a couple of hours. There is a range of cafes and restaurants. Shopping, mini golf, ice creamery and so much more. And, of course, the famous Ghirardelli Chocolate Shop. Originally this was where Ghirardelli chocolates were made but...More

The view from this spot is great, specially if its sunny. But dont expect to spend all day in the area. Nice shops around, but thats pretty much it. But still, a stop everyone has to go while visiting SF.

We visited hoping to maybe see how they made chocolate BUT come to find it is made elsewhere in California now (should have researched before). It is a bunch of shops and eatery’s but nice to walk around.

If you are a fan of chocolate this has to be one of the best places to say you've visited. Delicious treats in the shops and photographic scenery all around.

You’d really only visit Ghiradelli Square for the famous ice cream shop that is there. There isn’t much else in the complex apart from a few shops and restaurants.

It’s a nice area to go to if you’re craving ice cream or just want to see one of the original factories. It’s interesting that it was once a chocolate factory and it’s now used for lofts.

I for some reason expected it to be a large shopping and chocolate area, so I was confused when I showed up and it was just a small courtyard. I did however love the chocolate fudge brownie Sunday I got and would suggest that to...More

Had a nice time with a group of us. After lunch is good for avoiding crowds at this highly popular tourist attraction. Only issue was the difficulty we experienced in getting a mobility challenged person to the toilets. It was in the center of the...More
