“On a sunny day, this is really one of the best spots on the island. Weekends can be a little too busy for my taste, but it always reminds me of how awesome it is to live on Alameda. ”
“The absolute "best" way, though it's neither fast nor cheap, to get into San Francisco is by ferry. It is a commuter ferry and during rush hour you'll see plenty of regulars and have a hard time finding parking, but during the weekends and off-peak hours it's the most pleasant and stress free way to get into SF. You pay once you're onboard, inside towards the front of the boat. You'll see the line. It's ran by the US Coast Guard so if you don't pay they'll throw you in the brig. It'll make a quick stop in Oakland and, depending on the day, it'll either go to the San Francisco Ferry Terminal or Fisherman's Wharf first, but it'll make both stops either way.”
“Great little Tiki Bar which transports you to Tahiti. Careful, the drinks are strong!”
“Great for a sandwich or just a cup of coffee. Cozy outdoor seating area in the back away from the street.”
