  3. 3. Jay Jeffers – The Store A home goods mecca offering a chic blend of items, from sleek furniture to rugs, lighting, pottery and other objects d’art. Here you can find a marble table that doubles as a Ouija Board, cloud-inspired chandeliers consisting of nests of frosted globes, and “feathered” resin skulls by the French artist Laurence Le Constant.
  4. 4. Kayo Books Now open by appointment only, this quirky bookstore is worth the extra effort. Stocking a stunning supply of rare and out-of-print books, the store specializes in first-edition paperbacks, particularly literary classics and pulp fiction detective novels. The store employs a unique organizational system, with oddball categories such as “Juvenile Delinquency” and “Catholic Guilt.” It also offers vintage posters and magazines. It’s a great destination for collectors, readers drawn to the obscure, and those looking for fun, rather exotic gifts. And, if calling ahead proves too inconvenient, there’s always Argonaut Bookshop, an antiquarian book store specializing in the history of California and the American West.

  6. 6. Saigon Sandwich Fantastic restaurants and varied cuisines are abundant in the Tenderloin, and the neighborhood has standout purveyors of Burmese, Ethiopian, Asian fusion, Afghan, Creole, Southern, Thai, Japanese, and other types of food. But it’s still best known for one of its longest-standing neighborhood staples, Saigon Sandwich. A cheap, takeout-only, no- frills Vietnamese sandwich shop, Saigon Sandwich may not have a website, but it’s consistently featured on San Francisco “best of” lists and has been called possibly “the best banh mi in America” by The New York Times. The pork and the combo are both standouts.
