Though not considered a restaurant, Bakesale Betty has still the best cookies in town. There is always quite a line in front of the bakery and people not only come for the cookies but also for the house's other specialty, the fried chicken sandwich which is marvelous.

Oakland Travel guide

The climate is often sunny and mild when San Francisco is cold and dreary, and there's great hiking in the redwood-and eucalyptus-covered hills above the city.
