Because Sometimes You’ve Just Gotta Have a Donut
Once in a while we wake up Saturday morning with the hankering for a donut.
If you’re having a donut moment and are in the vicinity of Polk Street in San Francisco, stop in at Bob’s Donuts (Polk Between Sacramento & Clay). It’s nothing fancy, but oh so yum! They keep it real with their classic, old-school donuts. As much as I appreciate the fancy versions they’re serving up at places like Dynamo Donut in the Mission (cardamon-peach, maple-bacon…), we always come back to the classic.
On a clear, sunny Saturday you can’t do much better than a Bob’s glazed donut, a cup of coffee and (a long-ish walk or short bike ride or drive) down to Aquatic Park to watch the swimmers, joggers and cyclists and take in some great views of the Golden Gate Bridge. The Hyde Street Pier (Part of the SF Maritime National Historical Park) has a great collection of historic ships and is a fab place to continue your stroll.
