On every trip to San Francisco, I always make sure to stop at the Market Street location of See's Candies. It's a small shop, but jam packed with wonderful chocolates and candies. The staff are always pleasant and helpful and you won't leave without trying at least one piece of candy.

The chocolates and truffles are so yummy. The 1 lb dark chocolate assorted box is my favorite. I love See's chocolates for the holidays and as gifts. The store offers free samples which makes the experience that much better!

I have traveled all over the world and eaten chocolates from these places and The 2 best chocolate candies are See's and the Belgium chocolates I ate in Brugge, Belgium! They are tied! I like them a lot more than chocolates that are supposedly better like Godiva.

Staying near the airport and want to buy chocolates/candy before getting out of SFO? If not, don't bother going here, but if so, this is just a store.... not a factory to see anything or anything. They are always friendly and willing to let you try something if you need to, and if you belong to a government or certain... More

In San Francisco you always hear about Ghirardelli Chocolate which is very nice, but I prefer See's which are YUM. We were offered a number of samples to try and the staff were great and able to answer all our questions.

Very knowledgeable salesman. Gave us samples and won us over. We left with large bags of chocolate delights as treats for us on the way home as well as gifts for lucky family members. The raspberry filled dark chocolates were OMG!
