A grocer from San Francisco opened a store on NW 23rd over a hundred years ago and named it after the uppercrust S.F. neighborhood.

Walked thru the neighborhood again with wife and daughter. It's a perfect Sunday afternoon to walk - collectibles, boutique stores, pet stores, et al. Most important there's Salt & Straw to end with! Recommended therapy 😊
