We will be staying at the Westin St Francis at Union Sq. We are frugal people so we won't be splurging on room service for breakfast. Are there any places nearby where I can get take-out for breakfast? I don't mind running down the street to pick up some coffee, muffins/scones etc and bring them back to the room, so we can pretend we're having room service breakfast. I checked Peets website and the closest branch is at Powell/Market. There must be some other bakeries that are closer?
Also, we are invited to our friends' place for dinner, and we're going to bring dessert. Are there any good places near Union Sq that have good cakes or pies? Our plan for earlier that day is doing one or 2 walking tours in the city (mostly in the Financial District area). I don't mind venturing a bit farther for great dessert, provided it's a short ride on public transit.
Lastly, what are the DO NOT MISSes at Ferry Building? Last time I went with my mom on Sat, we were so overwhelmed by the farmers market that we didn't spend much time at the regular shops inside.
