Of all that they claim to be it does not live up to expectations as they only carry chocolate that has dairy and asking an employee if they were gluten free he could not say a definate answer.

Well... matching dark chocolate fudge, premium ice cream, and nuts and cherry are just heavenly. It’s the old school but it’s awesome.

Ghirardelli Square is the origin of great chocolate, and you can still find it there. There're stores, galleries, a fountain and also a hotel, but what brings the courtain up is the café, where it's possible to try delicious sundaes with the iconic chocolate.

If the Bart isn't running because it is early morning you can buy a ticket with Super Shuttle. We used the Bart to get in to the city.
