San Francisco’s Tenderloin is a study in contrasts. It is both a state-recognized historic district with a grade school, parks, and great housing and a designated high crime area, home to a melting-pot mix of people from all walks of life. Everyday joys such as the Christmas holidays can get lost in the shuffle, but a Veritas resident manager there had a ‘gift idea’ that’s indicative of his care and concern for people, not just buildings.
Limoncello looks like your everyday corner store — you’ve probably raced by it a hundred times without noticing it—but inside you’ll find an epicurean paradise.
Located on the edge of Pacific Heights, Limoncello is an amazing Italian deli and liquor store where customers are greeted with a big smile and a huge hug from owner Jalal Heydari.
San Francisco is home to a wide variety of unique co-working spaces. These range from one-of-a-kind outdoor parks that are perfect for meet and greets to expansive interior settings that you can drop in for meetings or distraction-free concentration time as needed.

The Mission District is a sunny, lively neighborhood filled with some of the city’s best parks, pubs, taquerias, ice cream shops, and murals.

Below are just some of the highlights of this eclectic area.
