Lunch in the sun in SOMA?

A friend and I want to go grab a decent lunch in the SOMA area - but would love to be able to sit outside in the sun somewhere...any suggestions?

  1. South Park, take-out from Caffe Centro (great salads and sandwiches) and eat in the park..or at a few outside tables. Also Mexico de Parc is there for take's okay to above average.

    1. The only ones I can think of, apart from Mars bar, which has a very sunny garden but limited food choices, are Triptych on Folsom at 7th or Momo's at the ballpark. Triptych has a cute back garden. Or head further south to The Ramp. Or how about B on the top floor at Yerba Buena or the tea place next door, which has a varied menu? Both have sunny patios.

        The tea place on the top of Yerba Buena is Samovar Tea Lounge and it's wonderful. Interesting menu choices, great food and calming atmosphere.

      2. Primo Patio Cafe - sunny patio and good, reasonably priced Caribbean grub.

        1. Are you near 8th? You can go to SF Design Center for lunch. They have a great and reasonably priced menu. The outdoor seating is popular and you might have to wait.

          1. Thank you all for your feedback!
