TASTE News Service, October 11, 2017 - With October 16 being World Food Day and restaurant prices rising, the personal-finance website WalletHub has just released its report on 2017’s Best Foodie Cities in America.

To determine the best and cheapest local foodie scenes, WalletHub compared more than 180 of the largest U.S. cities across 24 key metrics. The data set ranges from affordability and accessibility of high-quality restaurants to food festivals per capita to craft breweries and wineries per capita.


Foodie-Friendliness of San Francisco (1=Best; 91=Avg.)

•             5th – Restaurants per Capita

•             1st – Affordability & Accessibility of Highly Rated Restaurants

•             4th – Gourmet Specialty-Food Stores per Capita

•             1st – Craft Breweries & Wineries per Capita

•             1st – Coffee & Tea Shops per Capita


California notched 25 additional places on the list of 180 American cities referenced in the survey. Southern California metropolises Los Angeles and San Diego were determined to be the fourth and ninth most “Foodie-Friendly” cities in America. Sacramento, once known primarily as a home of chain restaurants, has risen in the esteem of food fanciers since it decided to embrace its agricultural location, rather than apologize for it. California’s capital was deemed the 15th best in the country.

Additional California cities cited include: Oakland (22), Long Beach (41), San Jose (42), Santa Ana (47), Bakersfield (51), Anaheim (59), Santa Rosa (72), Huntington Beach (75), Riverside (84), Stockton (92), Oceanside (98), Irvine (99), Glendale (107), Oxnard (119), Chula Vista (123), Fremont (139), San Bernardino (141), Santa Clarita (144), Fontana (153), Rancho Cucamonga (155), Ontario (167) and Moreno Valley (176).
