Getting frozen yogurt will never be as good for you as forever wiping the memory of it from your mind, but it’s better than getting ice cream or harboring anger toward yourself for passing on dessert. Loving Cup makes our favorite in the city, both because it’s great and because we love watching the mix-ins get pulverized via the giant drills they use. We like the peanut butter cup version, but nothing is stopping you from wildly pointing at every topping that catches your eye.

Elephant Sushi in Russian Hill usually has a bit of a wait, so try to head there on the early side (they open at 6).
Nook is a solidly on-price, reliable neighborhood hang in Russian Hill. Even if they do weird things with granola.

Son’s Addition is a neighborhood spot in the Mission that serves everything from charred octopus to a solid cheeseburger.
A solid North Beach brunch option, which, get this: actually takes reservations. Don’t sleep on Park Tavern.
The plates at Al's Place in the Mission look like art, and taste pretty great too. "Best New Restaurant in the US 2015" ain't a bad calling card either.
