Healthy line to get in to have dessert but staff work very hard to get you taken care of. We ordered a few desserts that were great but a bit pricey but it is San Fran and we had to try. It did not disappoint....More

Best chocolate in San Fran and perhaps beyond. The store will give you a sample as you walk in so of course you then want to buy it! Worth the price and the ice cream shop next door is really good too but expect to...More

We visited Ghirardelli Square a couple of years ago and it was under construction and not much there. I was hesitant to go again. This time was a much different experience. The construction was finished and there was plenty to see and do. There are...More

Really pretty small modern square with Ghirardelli chocolate and ice ream stores and the best bakery La Marais (Almond croissants to die for). Also wine and craft beer and lots of other arty shops.

As chocolate lovers, this stop was a must for our group! We walked through the larger Ghirardelli Store on the upper level, where the views were outstanding out over the bay. We enjoyed ice cream at the Ice Cream Shoppe on the lower level. Unfortunately...More

Great place if you love chocolate and the store even gives you free samples. I would say that they need a little more room though becuase it gets very busy. Also, service can sometimes be slow because they are so busy. Otherwise a great place!...More

It is one big Ghirardelli gift shop and ice cream. Ice cream will cost you about 10 bucks. It is a short distance to the mass of gift shops at Pier 39. The Big Eyes gallery is very close as well.

If the Bart isn't running because it is early morning you can buy a ticket with Super Shuttle. We used the Bart to get in to the city.
