Duboce Triangle

Book shops, flower shops, and coffee shops centered on a park in central SF.

Although Duboce Triangle’s main attraction is its humble namesake park, this quaint residential neighborhood’s centrality contributes to its sought-after status. While this put-together neighborhood is distinctly tranquil, the bustling nightlife and shopping options of The Castro and the Mission are mere steps away. When you want to trek to more distant San Francisco destinations, Duboce Triangle’s multiple MUNI lines make it easy.
