Ghirardelli Square reviews
If you have been walking the SF hills, then you earned a sundae. Maybe two but usually one is enough. Fun spot to cool off and rest your feet before the next attraction. more »
Wow. I’ve been waiting for a long time for this sundae and it did not disappoint. The hot fudge was thick and creamy and just so divine. Definitely worth a stop on your trip. more »
