People rushing around in suits is a stark contrast to the more laid back vibe of the rest of the city. FiDi is where major business deals are inked and where that final handshake seals the deal. Whether you are having a power lunch or grabbing a quick bite between meetings, in a foodie city like San Francisco, there are plenty of options. Need a break from the grind? Take a stroll to one of the many open public courtyards and roof decks or take a longer adventure to the Embarcadero and visit the Ferry Building with local food and not one, but two Blue Bottle Coffee shops are located.
The Financial District is easily accessible by the Embarcadero, Montgomery and Powell Street BART stops and by several MUNI stops along Market Street. If you are coming from the the East Bay or North Bay the ferry will drop you off just a short stroll to the high rises of FiDi. The Ferry Building with some of San Francisco's most famous cafes, restaurants and shops includes Blue Bottle Coffee, Slanted Door, Cow Girl Creamery and ACME bread making it a perfect spot for a quick bite during a hectic day. The Financial District neighboring hoods have a lot of unique character, including Chinatown, North Beach and Telegraph Hill, Union Square and SOMA.
