The next day began bright and early as we anticipated a full day.
First, and this place was so good it deserves its own paragraph, we had breakfast at The Crepe House on Post Street. It was simply amazing. Because I like to be really healthy sometimes, I had me a banana and Nutella dessert crepe that could only be what angels eat for breakfast every day. =) Really, they were so good. My mom, lover of junk food ;), had herself a chicken, mushroom and spinach with Hollandaise sauce crepe, and my dad had something with salmon and swiss cheese(whatever it was, I recommend).
After our decadent breakfast, we headed down a few blocks to the Powell Trolley station to take the obligatory ride from Powell to Fisherman's Wharf.
We basically spent our day there, doing various things that you're supposed to do while there. We did an hour boat cruise around the Golden Gate and Alcatraz, walked up and down the boardwalk, went to Pier 39 only to be disappointed that the seals migrated, got some bread at Boudin, and generally just ate a lot.
At Ghirardelli Square, we sampled the new Peanut Butter chocolate squares, and then headed over to Kara's Cupcakes, a place I learned about from other TB reviews. =) If you read them, they're all right. They are absolutely amazing. I purchased 4 as my treat to my family, and everyone, including my dad whose lack of sweet tooth perplexes me, loved them. We got Peanut Butter Chocolate Ganache, Java, Kara's Karrot, and Banana caramel. We all said our own was the best. =)
