    the Cafe at Nordstroms (in Horton Plaza


    Slice of pizza at Ciro's on Market at 5th

    Padres Pizza on Market at 7th has gyros

    Valentine's Mexican on Market at 8th

    Kebab place on 9th just north of Market has Doner kebabs and is really good.

      Not at all touristy, and very good!

          Ah, I just stopped walking when I got to the kebab place, Josh. Should have gone one more block north... :)

            I'll have to try the kebab place. I love Ciro's.

          Cafe 222 has lunch. I think you can still get their breakfast menu at lunch too.

          Nordstrom Cafe and Cafe Chloe are also good.
