    San Francisco definitely has its share of ultra-cool neighborhoods. But one that's been registering on our radar a lot, lately, is North Beach. Known for its rich Italian history and Beat movement past, the area not only plays host to the oldest street in town (Grant Avenue), but also has a very promising future. With the arrival of awesome new boutiques like ACRE/SF and the soon-to-open brick-and-mortar outpost of Réveille Coffee Co., there are more reasons than one to visit this slice of the city.
