Seabreeze Cafe at 111 Anza Blvd & other lunch spots?
I wrote earlier seeking breakfast possibilities a walk away from
Hilton Garden Inn
765 Airport Blvd.
where we'll be staying inbetween tour bus trips. So far it looks like we'll be breaking fast at the cafe at the Red Roof Inn a few minutes walk away. We're actually flying in at lunch time, so I was hoping for some input for a walkable lunch as well. I spotted this place called Seabreeze Cafe at 111 Anza Blvd. being lauded on by a chowhound a couple of years ago. Is it still a good place to eat? What's good there? Or are there any other walkable places to eat on Airport Blvd or Anza Blvd?
Thanks so much!
There is a shuttle that runs along Airport Blvd down to the Millbrae Caltrain station if you want to expand your boundaries a bit. (http://www.caltrain.com/pdf/Shuttles/...)
Alternately, if you are flying in around lunchtime, there is very good food at the airport, particularly pre-security in the international terminal.
I work in that area, and while seabreeze is ok for a quick work lunch, I'd never go there on vacation.
What's your definition for walkable? What's your timeframe? What do you want to eat?
Sorry, but you're not located near any 5* non-chain restaurants within a 10/15 minute walk. Although these two are chains, really close heading south is Kincaid's (fish/chophouse) that is right by the water and has an excellent view of the bay and a little further distance going north, there's Elephant Bar which also has a water views.
If you want to walk a little more and cross over the Broadway ramp, heading west, then you should check out Kuleto's Trattoria. I would recommend this place!

I worked in the building where Seabreeze is located for 2 years. It was just fine then, but the owners sold when my company moved to SF in 2004. Il Fornaio is not at all walkable and the Red Roof Inn cafe is a joke. It's a horrible place for good food, but when we needed a decent place to walk to from the office we went to Kincaid's.
I don't know what Seabreeze is like now, but back then it was nothing more than good deli sandwiches made to order, and pre-made salads.
Not sure what your definition of "walkable" is but I did a quick search and the only decent restaurant that I could find within 1 mile of that Hilton was Il Fornaio.
If its at all possible, I'd recommend popping up the street to Millbrae and going to Hong Kong Flower Lounge.
FYI - El Camino Real runs the length of the peninsula and is good thorough-fare street with a number of restaurants on it.
