As right now, the fanciest part of Mission District is the Valencia Corridor, pretty much between the 14th and all the way to the end of Valencia. I am not even sure if there is enough store front space for how many high end restaurants and speciality stores are being opened.

Stroll down on Valencia St these days and you can sip coffee at Four Barrels, high quality chocolate at Dandelion, dine at Tartine Cafe, Farina-off Valencia, Beretta or DOSA, try different kinds of craft beers at Abbott's Cellar, have Mexico City - style appetisers ( botanas) and tequila at Mosto, which is a new taken on the usual Mission taquerias. You can stop by to see what is new at the Paxton Gate shop- taxidermy, plants, minerals, buy local designer clothes at DEMA, etc...There are many others that I don't have enough space to name here . This is definitely Mission on the fancy side.

In my opinion, there is no “fancy” side of Mission. I think a walk through the neighborhood gives you a good feel for daily life for many city residents. But for the “nicest” area of Mission I would recommend Inner Mission between Potrereo Ave. and South Van Ness and between 15th St. and 24th St.
This is a charming little neighborhood within Inner Mission that offers great weather, businesses, and a tight–knit community. It’s a safe neighborhood where you’ll find all types of artists, techies, and families alike living. Renting or buying, it has all sorts of property to choose from, such as Condos, lofts and single family homes.
There is an array of great shopping, cafes, restaurants, and bars spread throughout the area. For a few popular digs to check out, start with breakfast at Universal Café, then take a walk down 24th st. over to Valencia corridor for a little shopping and back over to 20th st. and Shotwell’s for a drink to end the day, or start the night. Check it out..
