Sample dishes from food trucks while enjoying waterfront views of the bay and the bridge. Make sure you visit Martin Luther King’s memorial and the ballpark of the San Francisco Giants.

  • Lived on 5th Street, not far from market Street, every day walking to the Center, I cute, decent, at least we haven't seen anybody, even when they returned late on the market Street far more homeless people ... Cafes are not expensive, stay happy.
