11 Places for Pride Bites in San Francisco

Are there unicorns in the Silicon Valley? No pun intended, but let's celebrate pride with neighborhood businesses in San Francisco that tickle your fantasies for catching that elusive rainbow.

The Castro Fountain

Soda fountain, ice cream parlor, and bakeshop. The layered rainbow cake is back at this Castro staple.

The prettiest and finest chocolates, hand crafted since 2003. It is ethically and sustainably sourced from reputable farms that produce the highest-quality beans that possess flavors unique to their country of origin. A 16-piece heart-shaped chocolate bonbon collection hand-painted in all the colors of the Progress Pride Flag. New flavors include Cherry StreuselBlood Orange MimosaPeach BourbonBananas FosterSalted PretzelLavender LatteBerries + Cream, and Cinnamon. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this collection will be donated to The Trevor Project, the world's largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQI+ young people.

Dragon Beaux
Dragon Beaux elevates the dim sum experience with a hot pot menu, roasted duck burritos, and an homage to local favorites like the Five Guys Xiao Long Bao, spinach skin and kale dumplings, an egg yolk lava bun, and the colorful xiao long bao (soup dumplings) made using natural ingredients: natural flour (white), beets (red), squid ink (black), spinach (green), and turmeric (yellow). How about colorful dim sum to spice up your palette?

Dynamo Donut

Taste the rainbow with the Berry Pride Donut -- fresh strawberries and blueberries folded into an orange zest base, dipped in an elderflower-champagne glaze and topped with rainbow sprinkles. 

Home Coffee Roasters

Home's signature style of latte art cannot be missed to celebrate Pride this month. Because who doesn't like a rainbow in their coffee?

Ice creamery with a sexy attitude, and distributed so highly (often with condoms that say #LICKTHAT). The Pride Sundae has two scoops of Harvey Milk & Honey Graham ice cream (or any flavor you want) with house-made pink marshmallow fluff and Fruit Loops.

Kokak Chocolates
"Kokak" means "ribbit" in the Filipino language. The proudly queer-owned shop in the Castro has a Say It Louder Collection, which includes Hazelnut Praline⁠, Strawberry⁠, Raspberry (v.)⁠ and 70% Single Origin Ecuador⁠.

Noe Valley Bakery

Celebrate with a piece of Noe Valley Bakery's Pride cake available in rainbow and trans layers. During the month of June, they will be donating 5% of Pride sales to LYRIC, an organization creating positive impact for our LGBTQIA youth & communities!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 

Amidst cupcakes and cakes and frosting and sweet things aplenty, we like the speciality pride desserts where the spot is donating 15% of pride sales to local LGBTQ+ charities.

Home of the original mochi muffin in an array of various colors and flavors. Try the mochi doughnuts for pride month!

A Thai, Korean and Japanese fusion of decadent, authentic and Instagrammable non-alcoholic drinks, desserts and savory bites, this is your one stop for all the color you can imagine eating in a lifetime. Amongst many date-night bites, get the new pride cake stuffed with greek yogurt cheese moose and stuffed salted caramel lava, served with homemade rainbow crumble.
