Great spot for lunch, big windows and lots of window seating available. Pretty good service. Wasn’t too busy so our food didn’t take long. We shared a sandwich and a graph of Sauvignon blanc. $60 inclu. tip. Heard it’s also a great spot for breakfast!

Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army
in the Civil War, this grand square has become the
city's premier shopping and entertainment district
containing the largest number of upscale department
stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in
the city. It's a large open area where tourists and
locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by,
enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and
