Going to the Christkindlmarket as part of school trip. Is there a decent QUICK lunch to try nearby?

School trip that I agreed togo with to watch over some kids. Thinking that I needed to bring a brown bag lunch as a backup anyway, but is there something nearby that I could do a quick stop in with a coupe of kids that they might also enjoy?

    Thanks all, but the 8th graders I was herding all wanted McDonalds. My son who was with a different group was able to try things at the market.

        Eat at the market. The eggs are good; pretzels are good; POTATOES are excellent. Everything is tasty, especially the sweets Hut

          Yep, as it has already been said, "Eat at the market".

            Eat at the market! Get the kilometer with mustard. And the fried potatoes. Can't wait....

              There are lots of food options at the market - plan to eat there!

                Macy's is nearby. There is a foodcourt in the basement and another on the 7th floor. There are several options there. For my money though, I love the Schnitzel at the market. There are plenty of kid friendly options there too, like hotdogs.

                As opposed to eating at the market itself? A schnitzel or sausage sandwich should have universal appeal.
