This place in no way resembles a picnic. It’s in SOMA, there are no baskets, and the food is way better than sad pasta salad and soggy sandwiches. Maybe we’re just bad at picnics. The breakfast is good, especially the granola, and the hot lunch options change daily are a nice switch from the unfortunate salad bar you regularly resort to. They do a weekend brunch that is also worth checking out if you’re in the area.

The plates at Al's Place in the Mission look like art, and taste pretty great too. "Best New Restaurant in the US 2015" ain't a bad calling card either.
Dandelion Chocolate Company
You can buy someone a gift from Dandelion in the Ferry Building or you can just get some hot chocolate for yourself. Your call.

Jane on Fillmore
Food for the Lululemon crowd, and for us too. Jane on Fillmore finely toes the line between healthy and delicious. If only they were open for dinner.
Bette’s Oceanview Diner
Bette’s in Berkeley is an upscale 1950s-style diner that does a boozy brunch worth the guaranteed 45-minute wait.
