Best Breakfast Ever: SF International Chocolate Salon

Sunday, I had chocolate and wine for breakfast. And lunch.

Okay, actually I met my sister and two friends for breakfast in the Marina first, but that’s besides the point.

The plan for Sunday morning was the San Francisco International Chocolate Salon. Basically there was a festival pavilion at Fort Mason (where the food truck party happens that I wrote about in my last post) that was full of chocolate vendors and wineries. 76 of them. Yes, 76 booths passing out chocolate and glasses of wine. UM, YES.

I can’t really explain the goodness, so I’ll let the (poorly taken iPhone) pictures speak for themselves.

This is one of the best wines I’ve ever tasted. It was called ‘sexual chocolate’, a cab/syrah blend made by a winery I think was called SLO Down, started by some dudes at Cal Poly SLO their senior year. Plus, the label was handwritten. Totally winning.

(My sister came!!!)

Bacon caramel and seaweed caramel popcorn. Apparently the bacon one didn’t taste like bacon, but the seaweed one DEFINITELY tasted like seaweed. With caramel. And popcorn. No thanks.

(SF, we have a winner. This would be a peanut butter and jelly cup. Think about it.)

After two hours of this… yes, two hours… I could never imagine having a chocolate craving again. Ever. In life.

Well, that lasted about an hour or two, and then I would have been ready to go again. You can’t fight the craving. I need a salad now.

I love San Francisco.

Peace, love, and peanut butter cups,


What’s your favorite kind of chocolate?

    2. Some of those chocolate treats were SO cute! Glad you had fun :)

    3. Ok, how did I not know about this?!? So much fun!
      I need to get up to the city soon, so we can meet – and maybe indulge in some food truck treats. :)

    4. Looks like someone was in heaven!!

    5. Wow!! That’s my kind of event. =) And it sounds perfect for breakfast, since that’s the only time of day I have a sweet tooth for some odd reason.
      By the way, you girls look so stylish–I love your outfits! =)

    6. wow, that looks so fuN! makes the 3 cookies i ate in class yesterday look like nothing :)

    7. Wow – what an event! I would have gone for the chocolate alone!! YUM.

    8. Best breakfast ever? Best MEAL ever! That looks like so much fun..I’d go crazy with all that chocolate at my fingertips!

    9. Can i please be COMPLETELY jealous of your day?
      I now have the worst chocolate craving ever, lol
      Looks like you had a blast :)

    10. Chocolate for breakfast = win.

    11. I’m actually not a huge chocolate person. I know, I know. I do like wine though!

    12. Oooh I can’t even imagine being surrounded by all that chocolate. I’d try really hard to pace myself so I could try as many as possible…Who on earth would want seaweed flavored popcorn lol?!

      • ffIe28099m not that much of a internet redaer to be honest but your blogs really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your site to come back down the road. All the best

    13. I don’t even know where to start with this!!! First of all, chocolate and wine for breakfast is like my dreams! Also I loooove macarons, it’s unreal :) I also am kind of in love with most wines I’ve had from SLO or Santa Barbara counties! That looks like quite the day.

    14. Omg… I would die. Seriously- I don’t know if I’d be able to contain myself? I see myself drinking and eating, then being full, sitting around and drinking more, and then eating more even if I knew I was full. It would be a disaster, but I’d love every minute.

      Seriously… I need to find something like this in Chicago…

    15. Wow! That sounds amazing!

    16. Jealous! I think I gained ten pounds reading about this place.

    17. This is what I imagine heaven’s cafeteria looks like. They look so good, I can only imagine what they taste like.

    18. Thanks to my father who statewd to me on the topic of this weblog, this

    19. obviously like your website however you have to check the spelling on quite a
      few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it vety bothersome too tell the truth then again I will
      surely come again again.
