Hello everyone,

Hoping to get some tips for 3 meals a day w/kids. Staying at Sorrento, relying on public transportation.

Goals: we can get to it, it is family appropriate, and moderate prices. Thinking for

Breakfasts: bakeries. Maybe an eggs and pancakes or bagels place. We're planning on Tartine, and my little one wants to go to Craftsman and Wolves after seeing it on t.v.

Lunches: sandwich and salad, pizza or other casual.
I think we will do dim sum at Yank Sing once. Probably make a picnic at the Ferry Building between Acme Bread and the wonderful cheese store there. What do you think of Spice Kit? I'm a little worried bc we have a nut allergic child, and their menu has lots of nuts on it... How is Coliccio's Witchcraft? I know this is kitchy, but what are good options for chowder in a bread bowl?

Dinners: probably most moderately priced and tasty will be ethnic options. Asian noodles, Mexican, Indian, Sushi (any good and not too $$$?). Small plates are fun. Heard good things about Mission chinese. Is it good? If we have one nice dinner, it might be SPQR, which was dynamite when we last went years ago, unless someone says it has gone downhill. Other than that, other ethnic casual spots? My kids are very adventurous eaters. I checked out the menu for LaMar Peruvian, and that looks tasty. Pricey, but they have a happy hour... If there is some over the top tasty pizza that might be a reasonable dinner option for us.

I know this is a broad request. Thanks to everyone for helping!
