I love bringing my family here when they are in town. It’s a lot of fun to get brunch at the farmers market on Saturdays, get treats for later and also peruse the Ferry Building.

Food is expensive as it is a tourist location. View is nice. You can look at the Bay Bridge! Good for coffee or ice cream too!

Ferry building is a place where traditions, cuisine and culture meet. There is a wonderful atmosphere. You can have a super tasty grilled cheese, taste different kind of olive oil, grab some fresh fish or just walk around. Have fun!

I recommend you park & walk or take the cable car for ease to Ferry Building. Trying to park close will be hectic & expensive.
