Happy to see Jack London Sq with wonderful new restaurants and proud of the true community spirit of vendors using local purveyors. A lovely experience overall, despite the rain, however, disappointed that some vendors were not open.

It's a cool tour. I just think that they could've given WAY more information (esp. historical and architectural). It was pretty light on these topics. I thought it was the folks from Edible Excursions but it turned out to be their competitors, who...continued

A fascinating tour in place and time. Guide was full of food samples from several of the places. Blue Bottle coffee is so perfect that we weren't able to go inside as a group; he had a thermos, 1 hour old, to share with us.

What surprises in hidden corners of Jack London Square! I loved the artisan products that were pulled out to further scintillate our culinary leanings!

History is my thing...would love a bit more of that!
