Pizza Place
$$
“If you love pizza, you must go to Pizzetta 211 for lunch or dinner. It is a block away and they don't take reservations, but the wait isn't usually too long. Best pizza ever! (And be sure to have dessert...)”

Café
$
“One of the last places in San Francisco with soul. Do not go here if you want something polished or cute. This place has attracted the same exact crowd for decades. They sit around debating philosophy and politics. Don't they have jobs? How do they afford the coffee? The cafe is open till 10 PM, and serves beer (with live music) at nights.”

Dim Sum Restaurant
$$
“Famous Chinese and Dim Sum restaurant in SF! There can be a line here but it is worth the wait! You can get a 7 course meal WITH LOBSTER for 4 people here for under $100 (house soup, lobster or peking duck, 4 entrees of your choice and dessert)! For dessert, the mango fish is sooo worth it! Remember to tip well! ”
