Union Sq/Sunset District/Healdsburg spots of Chowhounding

My girlfriend and I are going to San Francisco in a few days to box up all of her elderly parents' belongings and I want to find some Chowhound opportunities in our neighborhoods.

The house is in the Sunset District.
Our hotel is in Union Square (Hotel Rex).
Then we're spending a few days in Healdsburg (Duchamp Hotel).

I'm particularly eager to hear of any breakfast/lunch spots nearby, though dinner spots are also very welcome. Any price range, any style of food, though we know about Zuni, the Slanted Door, and the more well-trafficked and widely-reviewed type of spots.

Thanks for any help.

  1. Canteen's a couple of blocks away from the Hotel Rex.

    Where in the Sunset? That's a big area.

    Healdsburg, check out the Downtown Bakery & Creamery, which now serves breakfast and lunch.

    1. The house is at 18th Avenue between Noriega and Moraga -- I'm not sure what that area is called.

      1. re: tanno

        That's a great location, there's a mostly Chinese restaurant row along Noriega from 19th to 23rd. Search for Noriega and sort by date to find recent posts.

      2. Not too far from the house are Win's on Judah for duck and San Tung on Irving for everything.

        1. definitely stop by arizmendi bakery on 9th (btw Irving and Judah) for lunch or bfast. great muffins, scones, breads and thin crust pizza (past 11am, I think). good coffee too.

          1. Forget the name of the restaurant attached to the hotel, but have eaten there several times and never disappointed.
            I think it's Peruvian, and nothing in particular I can remember but good food, very reasonable.
