Hot corned beef sandwich is phenomenal! Need I say more? You simply stand in line and order, and they hand you your freshly made sandwich in minutes. Its totally worth the wait.

This is a to-go spot popular with office workers downtown. The menu changes each day and is rather inventive, quality very high. Service is fast, but you have to take it away.

Stand in line, get any sandwich, take it to a near by park and enjoy! This is a locals place but since it's so close to Market Street and right across from the Palace Hotel, it's easy to find. You can't go wrong

Large, very tasty sandwiches! For smaller guys or ladies, their sandwich might be good for two. Worth trying out more than once, definitely a great choice for a quick tasty lunch downtown.

Right across the street from the historic Palace Hotel, this lunch spot is a great spot! You need to go early though - once noon hits, there is a good sized line. But the staff is great and very efficient on getting orders out timely!

SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
