Winter Weather Comfort Foods in San Francisco

Tamara Palmer

While we don’t exactly have winter wonderland around this part of the country, the City of San Francisco can get awfully chilly at times. The right comfort foods can help guard you against feeling the elements of the weather outside, keep a cold or flu at bay and restore your soul during those times when it may be in need of a little extra TLC.

Boudin Bakery

When it’s really cold outside, you’ll be extra stoked to devour a glorious serving of Clam Chowder in a sourdough bread bowl paired with an Italian Classic sandwich featuring Columbus salami and mortadella — the meeting of two quintessentially old-school San Francisco food brands.

Boulevard Cafe

A great place to turn to when you’re craving all-American classics with a twist; we recommend delving into the macaroni and cheese portion of the menu (which is called Blvd Macs) and trying the Hot Dog Mac and Jalapeno and Bacon Mac.
