Financial District Weekend Lunch Options?

This post is for those of us who need to lug our laptops into the office on a weekend (Guess where I'm at now! On a sunny day!). To add insult to injury, there are very few lunch options in the Financial District. Of course, if I had the time and the energy, I'd walk to the Ferry Building or Chinatown.

Barring that, what go-to places do you have in the Financial District on the weekends? I'd start the list off with this:

1) Hi-Tea, which just opened up recently on Bush between Sansome and Battery, is open Sat 10-4. Pho and bubble tea galore.

Outside of Hi-Tea, my options appear to be Subway and McDonald's. Sigh. What suggestions do you have?

  1. I've been to Oasis on a weekend.

    1. I work in the financial district as well. Choices in the area are lousy - weekend or weekday in my opinion. Sounds like should buck up and walk over to Cane Rosso at the Ferry Bldg.

      1. A few weeks ago I had a great cubano at Paladar on Kearney on Saturday.If I hadn't been alone I would have tried the yucca chips, they looked scrumptious.

        1. I usually end up at Banana house on Kearny on weekends. Also, I think Caffe Amici is open weekends as well. If it's sunny, I sometimes go over there and work for a bit. Although it's been pretty miserable by the beach all weekend, so I'm surprised to hear it's sunny downtown.

          1. depends how far you're willing to walk - all sorts of great pho on larkin street
