Where to eat with 12 year old during San Fran trip

I am travelling with my wife and and 12 year old boy for July 2-6. We will be staying at the Argonaut in Fisherman's Wharf. I d like to know the best places to have breakfast around there. And the most fun places to eat within commuting distance. Looking for great food but a place I can take a 12 year old. Thanks.

  1. Well, for lunch I'd hit Boudin at least once. The best restaurant an easy walk from the Argonaut is almost unquestionably Ana Mondara. Like everything in the area, it is overpriced for what it is because it is touristy. But the food is undeniably good, and the room is absolutely gorgeous.

    1. re: whiner

      I was going to recommend precisely the same place - Boudin: the demonstration bakery may fascinate your 12-year-old.

    2. Fog City Diner - very nearby

      1. *** It should be noted that my above post should say "...the second best restaurant an easy walk from the Argonaut is probably Ana Mondara..."

        But something tells me the best restaurant which is an easy walk (Gary Danko) is not in the cards ;-)

        1. My 12 year old would love In N Out Burger. Go on line for the "secret" menu.

          1. On Saturday morning you can hop on the street car and stop by the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market which has lots of vendors booths and bakeries and have a great breakfast.

            You will probably see Lori's Diner ... it doesn't get high marks though I have never been to that location. Probably best would be going to North Beach for breakfast. Mama's is popular.
