We’re Brock and Chris, two of the craziest, greatest people you’ll ever know. Yummertime is our life, and our blog, Instagram and YouTube channel—a source of inspiration for thousands of boys and girls out there who refuse to accept rules and live a boring life. From fashion and food to beauty and travel, we hope we can encourage everyone to live their good life (and eat a little more pizza). If you’re in San Francisco, that good life can start in Nob Hill—where the donuts are bigger than the size of our heads and a quick cable car can take you to a hidden tropical paradise.

Life’s all about balance. When we know we’ll be indulging later (as we do every day!), we start the morning with a workout. Today, we hit up HIT FIT SF, a high-intensity workout designed to take you through fast-paced intervals and TRX circuit training all within an hour. The gym is spacious and includes equipment of all kinds, from boxing bags to stationary bikes and row machines. Fun fact: your first boxing and TRX class is free!

Bob’s Donut & Pastry Shop

After our workout, we’re off to our first priority of the day—getting a few glazed donuts at our favorite donut shop in the city, Bob’s Donut & Pastry Shop. Bob’s is a San Francisco institution, a major tourist destination and Yummertime staple. Located on Polk Street, it’s easy to grab a donut and then window shop around the historic area of Nob Hill.

Marine Layer

Named after San Francisco’s signature climate, Marine Layer is one of our favorite local brands to shop all things clothing. Talk about the softest tees ever—Marine Layer’s T-shirts are all made from recycled beechwood, making them sustainable and ultra soft.

Jane on Larkin

Fast forward to lunch and we’re at one of our favorites in the city—Jane on Larkin. The cafe and restaurant boast an incredibly colorful setting (complete with a vibrant mural), perfect for photo opportunities. We love everything on the menu, but this time we shared the spicy baked eggs (Yum!), avocado mash, Jane’s homemade granola and foamy matcha lattes. An hour later and we’re out the door, but not without a couple cookies to go. Trust us, they’re some of the best in the city.

Cable Car Ride

We’re off to see the best views of the city, leaning out from the sides of a cable car. It’s easy to hop on or off at any stop, and for $7 you’ll get a sweeping perspective of just how high Nob Hill really is. This iconic mode of transportation is most exhilarating when you stand up and hold on to the sides. But our main reason for using the cable car is for one purpose: to get us to our next stop along our day in Nob Hill!

New to San Francisco, MAC’D has become one of our all-time favorites for comfort food in the form of The BBC—bacon, chicken and topped with Hot Cheetos. MAC’D is a fast-casual, build-your-own mac ‘n’ cheese concept that lets you get creative!

Tonga Room & Hurricane Bar

No visit to Nob Hill would be complete without a trip to the Tonga Room below the Fairmont. A San Francisco institution since 1945, it’s one of our all-time favorite places to grab a tiki cocktail while the rain literally storms down across the “lagoon” inside—don’t worry, you won’t get wet!

6:30 p.m.

Le Colonial

Le Colonial is a hidden Yummertime paradise of a restaurant, complete with tropical vibes and French Vietnamese fare. As soon as you step inside, you’re transported to a style reminiscent of the turn of the 20th century. It’s a tropical respite in a city sometimes enveloped in fog, and one of our favorite places to grab a drink that packs a punch. We’ll come here for dinner just the two of us, but this time, we’re sharing a few bar bites with friends in the lushly landscaped veranda.
