Actually, given what Serendipity offers, you'd be hard-pressed to find something similar even in San Francisco itself. So what's so good about the place?
-They have a good array of vegan chocolates (at least four or five different types), all of which are available for sampling, and all of which are delicious and unusual.
-They offer vegan popsicles from San Francisco-based Pop Nation.
-They have gourmet vegan hot chocolate, which can be made with either soy or almond milk; it's rich, thick and practically a meal unto itself.
-They have a good selection of high-grade loose-leaf teas, in case you want something light to go with your sweets.
In fact, I can't think of any other place in the Bay Area that offers vegan chocolates, high-grade tea and popsicles all in one setting. My only gripe, and it's a major one, is that Serendipity has terrible hours. I mean, it's closed Sunday, Monday AND Tuesday, which is just excessive. And, of course, it seems like every time I want to stop by, it's on a Sunday, Monday or Tuesday. Regardless, it's worth a visit and unlike any other chocolate shop/tea shop in the Bay Area.
