Just a block and a half away is the Harvest Hills Market and Charlie’s Deli Cafe and Precita Park which offers plenty of open space for a picnic, exercise, playing with your dog and a friendly playground. On one corner, there’s the Precita Park Café, on another, the Hillside Supper Club. From here, it's a short walk to lower 24th Street and the myriad of offerings there.
Walk up the stairs and down to Mission Street via Mirabel and Coso. The neighborhood is dynamic! You can enjoy many eateries, bars, shops and restaurants such as  Baby Blues BBQ Emmy’s Spagetti Shack, Blue Plate and Pizzahacker. If inspired for a night out, kick up your heels at Roccapulco Salsa Club and El Rio or hang out at Vigil’s Sea Room, Rock Bar, Royal Cuckoo and Iron and Gold. Watch Giants baseball or attend a poetry reading at the 3300 Club. Don’t forget to enjoy a dinner out at Ichi Sushi + NI Bar, The Front Porch or Mi Lindo Peru either!
Meanwhile, there are plans for an improved and greener gateway at Valencia and Mission Streets. It wil be exciting to see all the meetings pay off for the neighbors when the Mission Valencia Green Gateway is realized!
Here, you're a part of the wonderful Bernal Heights neighborhood! Ready for more? Head up the hill and start your morning on Cortland Avenue some days. Try Sandbox Bakery for a coffee and snack, or stop by Martha & Bros to see some neighbors, or enjoy the cozy back room or outdoor garden at Progressive Grounds Coffee Shop.

Neighborhood Description:

Despite being visible from many of the city's vista points, Bernal Heights is something of a hidden treasure. Many residents have lived in the area for many years, and it has remained a stronghold of working class and bohemian lifestyles as the rest of the city has changed all around it.

With the ruggedly expansive Bernal Hill Park at its center, it's no surprise that dogs and kids seem at times to outnumber adults in the neighborhood. Holly Park, on the south side of the hill, and Precita Park to the north, provide even more opportunities for outdoor mingling. Cortland Avenue is the main commercial drag; community activism, ethnic dining and nightlife mix on this eclectic street.

Beautifully landscaped public stairways criss-crossing the hill make the neighborhood a great place for an afternoon meander. A popular destination is the stretch of Mission Street that runs along the western foot of the hill; the addition of several trendy restaurants and hip bars are rapidly changing the face of the neighborhood.

Community spirit is strong in Bernal Heights, which has its own neighborhood center and newspaper, the Bernal Journal. Each year brings the much anticipated Bernal Heights Outdoor Cinema, featuring movies made by local filmmakers.
