Great lunch spot if you're in the area - there's a cute grocer, a vietnamese place that we ate at, chocolate/coffee shops, a butcher, oyster restaurant, etc... Something for everyone, but be prepared for crowds and lines! Limited seating for some places.

A friend had recommended this place to me for good eating options, I walked here after the Alcatraz trip and did not find a single place offering vegan food.

Great market with some delicious food and drink outlets. It's also a fantastic building and gets very busy at the weekends.

I recommend you park & walk or take the cable car for ease to Ferry Building. Trying to park close will be hectic & expensive.
