Known for its Victorian-era architecture and “billionaires row,” San Francisco’s Pacific Heights neighborhood is the ideal weekend jaunt for those craving unique fashion finds, interior design inspiration and delicious food. Most of the stores and eateries are dotted along the perpetually buzzing Fillmore Street, but a detour down Sacramento Street does not disappoint. As cooler weather sets in, an afternoon of shopping, brunching and early holiday gift hunting is just what the doctor ordered. Here are a few picks to get you started.

1905 Fillmore Street

45R opened its first store outside Japan in 2000 and in S.F. in 2016, bringing its casual luxury fashion to a West Coast audience. The store oozes prairie-chic cool with maxi skirts, cozy corduroy duster coats and tweed bags.


Fiat Lux
1942 Fillmore Street

In a word, sublime. This jewelry shop speaks to the rebel, the lady who lunches and everyone in between. Many of the pieces are tattoo-inspired, which gives each of these designs a story of their own. If you are looking for fun, one-of-a-kind treasures you are in the right spot.


Le Labo
2238 Fillmore Street

Le Labo is a Francophile’s apothecary paradise. Heady hand-blended fragrances, personalized bottles and an experience you’ll want to repeat again and again. Don’t miss the plant-based face products — they are as good as they sound.


3075 Sacramento Street

Indulge all your interior design fantasies at this stylish mecca. From tabletop to art to furniture to pantry, they have it all. Don’t miss the upcoming exhibition with Annemarie O’Sullivan, an English basket maker, whose large-scale woven willow pieces will soon be in store.


2035 Fillmore Street

If you are looking to tap into the S.F. street-style vibe this should be your first stop. Coveted labels like Pleats Please Issey Miyake, Mieko Mintz and Trine Kryger Simonsen are staples here. This is a fashion lover’s paradise.


2360 Fillmore Street

Visiting fashion boutiques we don’t have in Marin is the perfect reason to spend an afternoon in Pac Heights, and Reformation is right at the top of our must-visit list. Choose from fresh and flirty, ’70s-inspired or wedding guest chic looks. It’s nearly impossible to walk out empty-handed.


1911 Fillmore Street

Michelin and James Beard award–winning chef Matthew Accarrino’s handmade pasta is worth the trip into S.F. — and the nightly five-course menu is the stuff of culinary dreams. Those in the know stop in for Accarrino’s Coffee & Donuts on the weekends from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the beignet-style doughnuts and artisan coffee. October sees the return of the spiced apple doughnut connoisseurs rave about.


Sue Fisher King
3067 Sacramento Street

Whether you are looking for gifts, new plates and mugs for your recent kitchen refurb or fresh linens for holiday guests, this store has it all. Stepping inside is refreshingly familiar and excitingly new all at once.


The Future Perfect
3085 Sacramento Street

From the moment you enter you know you have crossed the threshold into somewhere very special. The contemporary design gallery is movie-set beautiful with every piece begging to be taken home. This month the gallery is hosting a show for artist/designer Dan John Anderson you won’t want to miss.


The Tailor’s Son
2049 Fillmore Street

This Italian eatery serves an elevated brunch in a bright airy space that is sure to liven up any autumn weekend. Indulge in the salmon tartine, lemon ricotta pancakes and spaghetti carbonara — you will not be disappointed.
