A small enclave nestled in the hills, Noe Valley is one of the warmest and sunniest neighborhoods in the city. Jaw-dropping views of the bay looking East toward Oakland greet you from almost any street corner.
On 24th Street you will find fabulous eateries, local bakeries, coffee shops, boutique shopping, dry cleaning, Whole Foods, top sushi restaurants, and more. With bakeries like Noe Valley Baking Company and restaurants that have become beloved neighborhood institutions, like Firefly and Saru Sushi, Noe Valley is paradise for foodies. Thanks to the Noe Valley Farmers market, locals never have to leave the neighborhood to get their fix of fresh organic vegetables, fruit and honey. From the divey Valley Tavern to the awesome selection of imported beers at The Dubliner, Noe Valley is increasingly known for its nightlife. For live music check out Noe Valley Ministry, presenter of world class performers in folk, world music and the alt-rock scene.
Some of the best public schools in the city are here in Noe Valley. Fairmount Elementary School and Alvarado Elementary School are both notable for their levels of family involvement. James Lick Middle School prepares students with language immersion programs, award winning art, music, and media programs.
Noe Valley is that prized thing in San Francisco: a place where every one can put down roots, straight through the sidewalks of 24th Street.
