2. Pacific Wharf Café
Savor a splice of San Francisco history right in the park at this casual waterfront favorite. The all-encompassing style surrounding Pacific Wharf gives off an old cannery-coastal vibe, bringing you back to bygone California nostalgia. The café itself is actually owned and operated by San Francisco’s world-renowned Boudin Bakery, which has been baking up its famous bread since 1849. Visitors can even stroll right on over next door to Pacific Wharf’s own resident artisanal Boudin Bakery and enjoy self-guided tours, Boudin bread samplings, and numerous other delights. But don’t eat too much bread, because Pacific Wharf Café presents a delicious range of menu offerings daily. Enjoy casual quick bites like the Turkey Pesto Club with sliced turkey, Swiss cheese, bacon, and pesto aioli, served up on a sourdough baguette. Or perhaps you’d like the signature Chinese Chicken Salad, which comes as diced chicken mixed with carrots, wontons, greens, almonds, and scallions with soy-ginger dressing. All soups and salads are dished up in classic Boudin sourdough bread bowls. Pacific Wharf Café is a quick-service establishment that offers outdoor seating exclusively.
