Best Hole-in-the-Wall Florist - 2006
Guy's Flowers creates a riot of color on the leafy, pedestrian-friendly stretch of Noe Street between Duboce and Market. On open days (currently Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.) the genial florist can often be seen lolling about outside his garage storefront in a deck chair, freshly picked seasonal stems spilling out of buckets along the nearby wall. Inside the garage are more buckets, wrapping materials, and rows of neatly stacked vases. His blooms range from everyday daisies to succulent birds of paradise. The prices are pretty reasonable, too. If you're not sure what to buy, Guy's offers sound advice without being too pushy. It's hard to walk past this hole-in-the-wall flower stall without stopping to pick up a bunch of pristine roses or delicately perfumed freesias.
