I really like this newsstand. They not only have a whole bunch of magazines, neatly display so that you can find what you want without a lot of hassle, but they also carry chocolate bars/pieces from around the world, and from local businesses. They have wonderful service, the people working are always nice and smiling. Definitely makes you happy.

This little magazine store is tucked into the bottom of a huge skyscraper at 1st St. and Market. They have the widest and most unique selection of magazines from all over the world, a tasteful selection of cigarettes as well. Their little secret - which isn't so secret anymore! - is their gourmet chocolate inventory with some of the most creative and distinctive varieties of gourmet chocolates from local creators and worldwide chocolatiers. Ask Adam, the owner, to give you a tour of his wares and don't forget the sample!

The first time I wandered into Fog City News it seems a bit understated, but it is a sensory overload just waiting to happen. With thousands of magazines from all across the globe and hundreds of chocolate bars that reach just as far, Fog City is just full of tid bits and morsels to please your sight, touch, smell, and palate. And for your hearing be sure to strike up a conversation with the staff, the entirety of which is made up of art students from the Bay Area.

In addition to all the chocolate and magazines I'm pretty hooked on the glass bottled root beer in the soda cooler. They also carry my favorite brand of cigarillos along with quite a few other tobacco products.

In addition to being a source of all kinds of wonderful chocolate and other sweets from around the world, this store has an excellent selection of magazines. They also have a selection of off-beat, non-Hallmark greeting cards. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. And if you buy 10 different chocolate bars, you get one free! Not hard to do because there are so many to try. Exotic - try Dark chocolate with peppercorns curry? Traditional - try the many varieties of bars with almonds or hazelnuts.
