The Ferry Building Marketplace is one of our most favorite destinations in San Francisco. Filled with restaurants, food stands, and gift shops, this place is on any foodies must visit list. Here are some of our favorite shops to visit and dine at.
Casual Ferry Building Restaurants
Boulettes Larder, hidden near the back of a hallway, churns out high quality food from breakfast time on wards.
Slanted Door’s Out the door has good Vietnamese and Chinese options.
Il Cane Rosso has some high quality sandwich and soup options.
Prather Ranch serves up some mean hamburgers and hot dogs along with excellent meat to bring home.
Acme Bread has awesome bread especially the Pan Epi and sourdough. Cowgirl creamery creates some excellent cheese. Recchiuti Chocolates are beautiful and decadent. Miette creates cakes, cookies, macaroons and pastries that are not only beautiful, but delicious. Boccalone Salumeria from the folks who run Incanto produces some top-notch charcuterie.

Sit down restaurants
The Slanted Door is clearly the marquee restaurant in the Ferry Building. With a blend Vietnamese Fusion, we have found that it largely lives up to its hype.
For something a little more casual, try the Hog Island Oyster Company for some fresh oysters and seafood.
