Toddler birthday tea and dairy-free cake

My husband, our almost two-year-old son, and I will be arriving in San Francisco a week on Saturday for a ten-day visit from the culinary wastelands of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

The day of our arrival happens to be our son's second birthday. We're looking for somewhere to take him for either afternoon tea or an early dinner to celebrate. It should be somewhere where the staff will sing him 'Happy Birthday' and where we can get some sort of cake with candles (ideally with a car or train on it!). Only thing is, he's highly allergic to dairy, so the cake would have to be dairy-free.

Othewise, if you can recommend a bakery where we could buy a suitable cake and then a toddler-friendly cafe or restaurant where we could take him to eat it and celebrate, that would work too.

We'll be staying in Union Square and will not have a car, so we'd need recommendations that take that limitation into consideration.

Thank you!

P.S. Any other suggestions for toddler-friendly restaurants would also be warmly welcomed!
