Food suggestions for ex-New Yorker w/ toddler and shellfish-allergic spouse

Dear CHers - I was very active on the NYC board until I moved to San Diego. Now I will be coming to SF with a 19 month old toddler and my spouse who is allergic to shrimp and lobster, and we all enjoy good food. My toddler is surprisingly not picky but cannot eat really spicy food for obvious reasons. My spouse will eat anything other than shrimp and lobster! We will be staying at the Marriott in downtown on 4th Street and Market, and will not have a car.

I am on a business trip that will feed me most of the time, so this is what we need, and all of them must be child-friendly (high chairs at the least!):

1. Good breakfast options for my toddler and spouse that are affordable ($10 or less per person)

2. Good affordable lunch options for the above - preferably stuff unique to SF; we'd like to avoid chains if possible. My spouse loves clam chowder in a bread bowl, Mexican food, and steak.

3. We will have one dinner for all three of us, and we'd like to have Chinese food. We are used to NYC Chinatown fare, so something like that would be great. My favorite place in NYC was Hop Kee that is Cantonese, and I love salt and pepper seafood. Spouse can and will eat crab. Toddler likes chow fun and rice.

I was childless last time I went to SF, so any fun places to take my kid during the day as well? Willing to take public transportation or walk.
