    I know it's a chain, but I really enjoy Specialty's (there are actually 7 locations in the FiDi). They have the best bread and sandwiches! It's like a more upscale and better Panera.

    When I want a little more variety and a little more healthy, I like Julie's Kitchen. There are two locations in the FiDi and it's one of those buffets where you weigh out your food and pay. They've got salads, sushi, pastas, etc.

    If you want a crepes, both savory and sweet, there's Galette 88 tucked in a alley. It's really nice inside though!

    For tasty (but overpriced) salads, there's Mixt Greens, which has several locations in the FiDi.

    FiDi is really close to Chinatown, too, so if you're feeling like Chinese food, there are plenty close to FiDi and the Chinatown gate. Capital Restaurant is a popular one for their fried chicken. It's your typical hole-in-the-wall Chinatown fare. For something a tad nicer, there's New Asia Restaurant.

    By the way, save for Chinatown, these are all breakfast, lunch, and early dinner places, because most spots in FiDi shut down post-financial institution hours around 5-7. Just FYI!

    Yank Sing is great for a dim sum experience, but a little pricey.

    Gott's Roadside and Out the Door in the Ferry building are low key and both excellent.

    There's also Louie's Bar just off Mission. Great little bar/grill.

    There's a cool new pizza bar on Mission and 2nd street called Archive Bar and Kitchen... great low-key (but classy) atmosphere and reasonable prices! There's also Truck Stop which is an alley that hosts a rotating lineup of food trucks.a bite and take it to Yerba Buena Gardens or The Embarcadero to eat outside.

    Hi Calvin! I love all of the suggestions above! I'm a big fan of both Yank Sing and Galette 88.

    Here are a few more that may be worth checking out:

    Gott's Roadside in the Ferry Building is super casual and has great burgers. If the weather's nice, it's a great place to sit outside and relax.

    Osha Thai Restaurant & Lounge is a chain, but it's really good for Thai food, though it's not as authentic as other Thai restaurants. It has an upscale vibe, but it's still pretty casual.

    Sens Restaurant is not very casual, but on a nice day, the outside patio is amazing. It overlooks the ferry building and the bay, and they have a really great happy hour. On a warm day, it's my favorite place to grab lunch or have a drink.

    Orale Orale Mexican Restaurant is really cheap casual Mexican food. It's delicious and greasy and everything good Mexican food should be.

    Tropisueño is one of my favorite lunch spots. It's a step up from Orale Orale, and it's always fresh and great. It's not directly in the financial district, but close enough that you can walk.

    B Restaurant & Bar is close to Tropisueno as well, and has great outdoor seating, a really fun vibe, and great food. Another great spot for warm weather dining.

    I personally love Yank Sing Restaurant. I think they have some of the best dim sum anywhere and if you don't want to do the sit down restaurant, they have Yank Sing to Go attached for take out and a quicker, more casual meal.

    There are actually two Yank Sing locations. However, only the one at 49 Stevenson has the To Go/more casual option. The other location Yank Sing is located in the Embarcadero.
