Beautiful bath products, neon water bottles, cool bar cart accessories—the shop has next-level versions of home and gift items. Visit the succulent potting station for DIY fun.

North Park Beer Company

Home brewer Kelsey McNair partnered with local interiors pro Paul Basile for a design-minded tasting room and brewery outfitted in Craftsman details.

Dark Horse Coffee Roasters

Their tag line may read “relax, it’s just coffee,” but we can’t help but buzz about Dark Horse’s excellent pour over, French press, and cold brew drinks.

The vibe feels equal parts general store and vintage shop, with leather goods, grooming products, and letterpress cards.
2879 University Avenue

The pros behind The Smoking Goat have opened an outdoor-themed restaurant next door, with indoor safari tents, hand-carved wood tables, and camp-inspired fare.

Cardamom Cafe & Bakery

All breads are baked in house at this breakfast and lunch spot. Sate your sweet tooth with their sizable, perfect-for-sharing almond croissants.
2977 Upas Street

Wow Wow Waffle

The waffle spot inhabits a backyard-like space next to a laundromat, turning out thick Belgian-style waffles (with both sweet and savory toppings), punchy lemonades, and local coffee.
3519 30th Street

Modern Times

A part of the luxe North Parker building—which also houses Influx Café, Underbelly, and Tacos Perla—the “Flavordome” is a funky drinking den. Look for lampshades on the ceiling and VHS tapes propping up the bar.
3000 Upas Street

 Dunedin

Dunedin

Still craving beef? Dine on grass-fed burgers at this new eatery from the team behind Little Italy’s Queenstown Public House and Ocean Beach’s Raglan Public House.
3501 30th Street

Crazee Burger

Given beef’s recent fall from grace—cattle are one of the leading causes of greenhouse gases—try a more sustainable exotic-meat burger here, like venison or ostrich.
3993 30th Street
