Tasting menu, brunch, bakeries, coffee [San Francisco]

Hi all,
I will be meeting my husband down in SF for Canadian Thanksgiving weekend October 11-14. We are currently living on opposite sides of the country for work, so I'm VERY excited about the prospect!
My first and only visit to your beautiful city was last October, and we had some amazing eats including Atelier Crenn.
This trip, I have some specific must-try's:
1. I would love to take him for an inventive, delicious tasting menu. I loved the techniques of Crenn, but didn't always find it delicious. Suggestions?
2. We love a good mocha, or other slightly sweet coffee. Loved Blue Bottle last time I visited. Any other similar or better places?
3. We will be meeting friends for a Saturday morning brunch. Again, looking for unique and delicious. Thoughts?
4. Always on the lookout for a can't-miss bakery item!

We will be staying at the Villa Florence in Union Square and relying on walking/public transit.

Some places I have thought about based on previous CH suggestions include:
Bi Rite Creamery
Humphrey Slocombe
State Bird Provisions
Craftsman & Wolves
Burma Superstar
Mission Chinese
Bar Tartine
Four Barrel
Swan Oyster Depot

Any recommendations on the above, or new suggestions altogether, are more than welcome! Thanks!
