This chic new part of town, stands in direct contrast to the historic Victorians, and old freight warehouses of nearby Dogpatch. A very fun set of cafes and restaurants have sprung up in this lively district. These include classic diners, gourmet pizza parlors, and down-home waterfront restaurants where you can find an old fashioned burger and fries, with weekend brunch options through the roof.
One amazing aspect to life in Mission Bay is its remarkable proximity to downtown SF. Within 8-blocks, you’ve pass the ballpark, SF Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), and entered the bustling Financial District. Transportation from Mission Bay can’t be beat. The Mission Creek Bike path is a tremendous asset, opening up many options without a car. MUNI lines, with extensions of the N Judah and T Third Street, connect the neighborhood with downtown San Francisco. The Caltrain Station makes rapid commutes available to the south Bay and San Jose. Mission Bay is also close to the all freeway entrances, including 101, 280-South, and 80-East.”
