For a decadent afternoon break, Lovejoy's Tea Room (Lovejoytearoom.com) puts on a Queen's Tea that might make dinner seem redundant (though if a crumpet, sandwiches, and Devon cream fall to satisfy your appetite, the tearoom also serves shepherd's pie and other traditional English comfort foods).
From the twice-weekly farmers' market outside to the smorgasbord of cookware and fresh, local food within (Cowgirl Creamery and Hog Island Oyster Company are among dozens of vendors) the Ferry Building Marketplace is a foodie's paradise. For those who don't fill up on free samples, dinner at a Ferry Building restaurant like Mijita (featuring regional Mexican dishes) or the Slanted Door (modern Vietnamese, with a serious wine list) is a great way to end a day spent wandering the city (FerryBuildingMarketplace.com).
