The Mission Brunch Tour is the first and only tour of its kind! Brunch is San Francisco’s unofficial meal, beloved by locals and a must-do for visitors. With that in mind, we’ve made a tour to make any day of the week feel like Saturday morning, visiting some of the best brunch places in the Mission District!
In 2.5 hours, you’ll visit 7 food stops, from a hip new Cuban lunch counter to a 1970’s-inspired diner, an acclaimed coffee roaster, an organic ice creamery, frutería and street art-focused cafe.
You’ll eat so much good food (see the whole list below), and learn how the Mission’s food culture has emerged, and where it’s headed.
More than just a chance to skip lines, you’ll leave with both a full stomach, and an understanding the foods we eat, the people who make it all possible, and the history of these establishments.
Vegetarian version available–please specify when booking. No gluten-free option currently.

The Mission Street Art Tour is an opportunity to discover the historic Mission District through the murals, graffiti and the stories behind them.
We will dive deep into Street Art culture while learning about the stories that have shaped this neighborhood, and the amazing role that arts and culture play, bringing people together to create political change.
In this 1.5 hr tour, we will learn about indigenous traditions, chicanx-latinx artists, historical social movements and the ongoing effort to keep the culture and heritage of the Mission alive. We will also talk about graffiti culture, the artists and movements that make graffiti in the Bay Area unique, and with a little luck, we will run into one of the many artists and curators that are actively creating on the back alleys of the Mission.
Goals of this tour:
See historic works and hear the stories behind them: how activism and art intersect in political works.
Understand how the Mission District’s social movements shaped San Francisco into the revolutionary city it is today.
Learn how large-scale murals are created, how graffiti writing took off in the Mission, views on commercialization of street art, and the terminology of the spray can world.
See stunning political street art, and understand how graffiti writers, feminists, Latinx communities and neighborhood activists have fought, and continue to fight, to keep the soul of SF alive in the face of gentrification, preserving local culture.
This tour is for those seeking an off-the-beaten-path experience.
Artists and collectives whose work we will highlight include:
