I'd like to get advice for three specific dining situations in the City. First, we'll be staying at the Triton Hotel and relying on public transit. We're both deeply coffee-addicted, so we would like to hear about good cafes near the Triton that open early (six a.m., perhaps) and offer more to eat than pastries -- say, fruit and yogurt or a good breakfast burrito. If the food at the Triton itself is good, that would be nice to know.
Secondly, Friday afternoon and evening we'll be taking a walking tour of my old 'hood, from the lower to the upper Castro, through Noe Valley, and down Valencia to Good Vibrations. Somewhere along there, we'd like to have good Thai or Mexican, with entrees running between $10 and $15. The Upper Castro would be nice.
Finally, we'd like to have a romantic dinner out that would run about $120, not including tip, for a glass of wine for each, an entree, and dessert. We especially enjoy lovely deserts, and will be dressed fairly casually.
I really appreciate whatever help you can give us.
