Willy Wonka would tip his hat to Domingo Ghirardelli, whose business became the West's largest chocolate factory in 1893. The square is no longer a factory, of course. Since then, it’s evolved into a handsome three-level luxury mall with spiffy boutiques, spas, and wine-tasting rooms – care for a massage and some merlot with your chocolate?

Sit in the sun and watch street performers, who regularly entertain at the West Plaza and fountain area. If your sweet tooth beckons, surrender to its desire with a "world famous" Ghirardelli hot fudge sundae at the old-fashioned soda fountain inside the mall.  

Practical Info

Ghirardelli Square makes for a perfect respite if you’re exploring nearby Aquatic Park and Fisherman’s Wharf, which are both a short walk away. Bordered by Beach, Polk, Larkin, and North Point streets, Ghirardelli Square is accessible by car and public transportation. It’s also near the Powell-Hyde Cable Car Turnaround and the scenic F-Market streetcar.
