Restaurants in Central Waterfront, CA


Recommended by Our Experts

Hard Knox Cafe

Hard Knox Cafe

San Francisco, CA

Inexpensive, friendly and fun, this is a great place for brunch or lunch. The chicken and waffles are wonderful.

Dolores Park Cafe

Dolores Park Cafe

San Francisco, CA

The Sightglass coffee, nice wine and beer, tasty food (esp. the eggs!), outdoor seating, free wifi? None may be as good as the people watching... and having fair access to their restroom.

Chocolate Lab

Chocolate Lab

San Francisco, CA

Looking for the perfect lunch spot, or snack spot, or chocolate attack spot? Well, here it is. From the delicious open-faced tartines to Michael Recchiuti's desserts that will make you say OH YEAH, here's the place.

Little Nib

Little Nib

San Francisco, CA

Just a little nib'll do ya, but you should probably eat a lot of them, because they are delicious AND healthy, dark chocolate being a superfood and all. And this nib-&-other chocolate-wonders-filled companion to Michael Recchiuti's neighboring Chocolate Lab will send you home laden with both snacks for later and gifts for the unfortunate, deeply-envious souls you left back home.

Serpentine. Worth the trek to the Dogpatch--tasty cocktails, cool industrial-chic vibe, and the menu has a strong seasonal slant. Good for lunch, brunch, dinner too. Chicken livers are awesome, good burger too.… read more
