Places For Ladies Who Lunch

Yes, men can lunch at these places too, but you'll notice that these restaurants are also conveniently located in neighborhoods with great shopping. Also, most of these restaurants offer a great Cobb salad (or burger). All you need is a friend or two and you have the perfect afternoon with the ladies.

The Two Martini Lunch Is Not Just For Business!


Curbside Cafe

2417 California St, San Francisco, CA 94115

Curbside is a popular weekend brunch spot, but it's also a great place to meet a friend for lunch. Many salad and sandwich options and great wines by the glass. After lunch, check out the great boutiques on Fillmore.


Magic Flute Garden Ristorante

3673 Sacramento St, San Francisco, CA 94118

This Laurel Heights restaurant is a great spot for lunch especially on a sunny day when you can enjoy the outside patio. Parking is easier than most neighborhoods and there is plenty of shopping.


Rose's Cafe

2298 Union St, San Francisco, CA 94123

Nothing says girls' day out like having lunch on Union Street and than walking around the neighborhood. Rose's is the go-to place for a cozy, intimate lunch and they also have outside seating for nice days.


Balboa Cafe

3199 Fillmore St, San Francisco, CA 94123

You might think that this area of the Marina is only for happy hour and singles, but the Balboa Cafe is a great place for lunch. Good food, good service and great people watching!


Chouquet's Restaurant

2500 Washington St, San Francisco, CA 94115

Grab lunch at this French bistro with great ambience inside and outside. They might not have a Cobb salad, but they offer a salad Nicoise and the always satisfying Croque Monsieur!
