Watch out all you Mission cool kids; Bernal Heights is on the scene. We may be aging up here on the hill, but hey, we’ve still got it!

Yesterday Refinery 29 made it so official:

For those who think the Mission is where it’s at these days, we’re here to put you in check. We’d be lying if we said Bernal Heights is an on-the-rise ‘hood, because the truth is, it’s already at the top. To prove that it’s the happening place to be, we’ve created this definitive short list of must-visit spots.

You might want to clear out that iCal, because we’re unloading a whopping 22 spots to set your sights on, pronto! Whether you’re in the mood for a brand-spankin’-new pizzeria or a jaw-dropping view of the city, it’s time to show Bernal some much-deserved love. Put on your exploring gear and make your way over.

I know, right? Refinery 29 has a photo guide for their Bernal to-do list, for your clicky clicky.

  1. The perfect accompaniment to my upcoming visit!

    I am a Bernal Territorial Maximalist, but even I don’t think Mitchell’s is in Bernal.

      They left a lot of gems off the list, for sure. But you know… tourists.

      Anyway, by treaty, San Jose Blvd is Bernal’s western frontier with the Noe hinterlands. So maybe Mitchell’s isn’t on our side of the street, but we can claim if for our cool quotient, just as we have for many moons about the Palace Steak House on the north side of CChavez. This is how Bernal wins hearts and minds.

  3. Derek says:

    I guess the La Lenguans have finally surrendered.

  4. Andee Wright says:

    What? No Vega or any of our other wonderful eateries on Cortland?

  5. Jeff Krupman says:

    where’s PizzaHacker on that map!

  6. Rusty H says:

    Rock Bar isn’t really Bernal either. Bernal Adjacent, sure. Same for Front Porch. But whatever, Bernal-ish, I get it. Also, it was cool to see El Rio in the first episode of HBO’s “Looking”.

  7. Johnnysauce says:

    The Wildside West has been around longer than any of these places combined. I’m grateful for whom ever put together this map for not including it!

  8. Brandon B says:

    Any idea why the map shows 3438 Mission St. instead of Cafe St. Jorge? I love that spot and it seems to be a bit of a bummer to not get their name out there.

    • Jonathan says:

      definitely a bummer for the map, but it was mentioned & described by name in the photo guide linked to in this post.

  9. Jen says:

    With the Bernal Post Office across the street from Rock Bar and Front Porch I think they get to call Bernal home.

  10. Rusty H says:

    Interesting: Zillow defines Bernal to include everything west to Delores / San Jose.

    http://www.zillow.com/bernal-heights-san-francisco-ca/

    When you search Google Maps for Bernal Heights, they also define it that way.
    So I guess I’m wrong, and happy to have these great places in my hood :-)

    Just out of curiosity, why is Precita Park Cafe listed twice? Are they opening up a new location?

    Mission cool kids? The mission is the marina for hipsters
