Photo Fave: Caffe Trieste, San Francisco

San Francisco's famed Caffe Trieste in North Beach

San Francisco’s famed Caffe Trieste in North Beach – on a “school night.”

I’d originally planned to post a photo fave from my Chinese New Years in Taiwan to follow up with the great guest post on Chinese New Year in Taipei, Taiwan, but the album seems to have gone AWOL this week. So instead I took it as a sign that I should share one of the other big events of the week – my 15th wedding anniversary. (Whoah! How did that happen?!)

Yep, Mr. TravelswithBaby and I managed to sneak out on a school night this week and revisit some of our old stomping grounds in the land where the question was popped. I realized it’s been a long time since I walked around San Francisco holding the hand of a grown up (or not pushing a stroller)! We closed out the night with some of the world’s best espresso brewed at the legendary Caffe Trieste in North Beach, where we used to enjoy listening to Italian Arias sung live as we sipped mochas on a Sunday afternoon.

As you can see, even on a week night, it’s no snooze.  This post is part of the Photo Friday fun over at DeliciousBaby.com. Here’s wishing you all a great weekend, and if you’re looking for more fun things to do with the kids (or without!) in San Francisco, don’t miss my many San Francisco recommendations here:

Safe journeys,

Congrats on your anniversary! We actually just got back from a grown-ups only trip to San Francisco and had a great time! Too bad we missed Cafe Trieste! I should have read your post sooner. 🙂

Thanks for the wishes! Yes, I admit that once I got into the groove, I was feeling ready for a weekend for two! More likely it will be an international trek for 5, but of course I love that too. 😉

Nice to get out without the kids sometimes – especially to celebrate a milestone. Happy Anniversary!!

As parents we really should get out more without kids- it’s rejuvenating and therapeutic. Happy anniversary!

Smiling about the berets 🙂
I’m glad I found your site because I live in Sacramento and go to SF pretty often, usually with my 2 little ones. Looks like there are lots of ideas on here.

Cool-welcome aboard! Likewise there are lots of great outings in Sac with kids – we’ve been known to swim upstream. 😉

Happy anniversary! Loved the berets worn by the stylin’ folks in the front row here 🙂

I know! There were so many berets in the room, it was crazy! What you can’t see is that both those men with their backs to the cam were playing guitars!
