With over 200 menu options at this year’s Outside Lands festival, eating is just as much on the agenda as hearing music in Golden Gate Park. You can create your own adventurous version of this gourmet food fiesta by visiting these eateries that, like Outside Lands, accept payment via the PayPal app — even if you don't have tickets to the festival. Try our suggested dishes:


C.R.E.A.M. stands for “Cookies Rule Everything Around Me,” and the smell of fresh baked cookies greet you at the doors of this Bay Area ice cream sandwich company that’s opening a long-awaited San Francisco store in the Mission District on August 2. But don’t overlook the customizable ice cream tacos, which you can stuff with toppings including cut up cookies! You’ll never look at a Choco Taco the same again. PayPal is offering $5 off your order.

Café Claude

This charming French cafe is a great place to hit for the classics, like primal steak tartare or decadent snails wrapped in buttery puff pastry. Don’t forget to claim your $10 offer and take advantage of the “Pay at Table” option at one of Café Claude's multiple locations. You won’t even need to flag down a server because you're able to view, split, and pay your bill directly through PayPal with your smartphone. 

Smitten Ice Cream

Scoops are made to order in about a minute with the use of machines that billow with clouds of liquid nitrogen-fueled vapor at this charming shop set inside an old shipping container. Get a sundae like the Salty and Cinnacle (salted caramel ice cream, cinnamon shortbread, TCHO chocolate sauce and homemade whipped cream) to get a proper idea of Smitten’s mighty capabilities. And if you forget your wallet, you can still check-in and pay with the PayPal app!

The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen

The American was born out of co-owner Heidi Gibson’s multiple wins at the Grilled Cheese Invitational, so these sandwiches are truly certified winners. You can make a simple one at home, so go for this sophisticated creation of local chevre, apricot-jalapeño relish and applewood smoked bacon on levain bread. PayPal also has a $5 offer here, so bring a friend to their locations in the Mission or South Park.

Rosamunde Sausage Grill

You can’t go wrong with the signature sausage of the house, an all beef studded with bacon. Rosamunde is a spot where you can use the “Order Ahead” function on your PayPal app so it’ll be ready for you when you arrive at any of their locations, and a $5 offer will lighten the bill.

Craftsman and Wolves

Amongst a sea of sweet treats, don’t overlook this savory sensation. Cut open this bacon, cheese and scallion muffin to reveal the magic of a poached egg in the center, served with the yolk still runny. Take $5 off with offer at Craftsman and Wolves in the Mission.

District Wine Lounge

District is more than a wine bar, it's also a spot for luxurious bites like a unique duck sausage served with roasted endive, Riesling-poached rhubarb and duck jus. But about that wine: There are more than 40 wines from unique international labels available here. Get flowing with the help of a $10 offer when you use PayPal's “Pay at Table” feature here at District.

Il Cane Rosso

Sandwiches are elevated to inspired levels at this tried and true Ferry Building cafe, one of the few constants on an ever-changing menu of all day rustic fare. We recommend seasonal specials such as the bright heirloom tomato sandwich or daily staples like the olive oil fried egg breakfast sandwich and the Biagio slow cooked pork shoulder sandwich. Make sure and take advantage of the $8 offer here.
