Hi -- We are to be in town for a very quick trip this weekend to visit a friend -- we are looking for recommendations for your favorite budget-minded meals for only lunch (up to $10 entrees) and dinner (up to $20 entrees) on Saturday.
Also, any (independent) cafes for breakfast coffee and hanging out (we do hope to get to Tartine to pick up a loaf of warm bread).
We want to sit down (e.g., no takeaway only spots or street food options) for the meals -- food quality trumps ambience or service levels this time.
We are staying on Golden Gate near Divisdero between Alamo Square and USF with use of a car.
Our tastes and preferences are eclectic -- ideally uniquely SF and potentially unusual would be preferred.
Thanks very much -- very happy to reciprocate when you visit Boston!
