Try the New England Little Neck Clams, peppered with vine-ripened tomatoes and lathered with champagne butter at White Elephant's harborside restaurant.

The open-air trolley on State Street leads to organic lunch spot Scarlett Begonia, which serves one of the best brunches in town. Snag a table in the hidden courtyard and order the salmon carpaccio.

Knoebels is also notable for some of the most inventive theme-park food in America, including peanut butter and jelly milkshakes and deep-fried brownies.

This chic rooftop bistro settled atop the Pershing Square Building may not be the highest point in downtown, but the unique view gives you the delicious illusion that you’re floating amid the skyscrapers.

The bread and butter alone are worth the trip to this quaint French bistro with Provençal-yellow walls, tin ceiling, and zinc-top bar.

Attached to a clothing boutique and gallery, this tiny café serves excellent poached eggs, but the caramel French toast may appeal to even the pickiest eaters.

San Francisco’s hottest pizza joint has expanded with A16 Rockridge, which turns out chewy pies from a hand-built oven. We love the Montanara Rockridge—lightly fried dough, smoked tomato sauce, burrata, and basil. BART stop: Rockridge
