    Super crowded and touristy, but you can find a restaurant wth good views and I highly recommend Trish's mini donuts.

    Watch the sea lions for a little while, enjoy the view of the Bay, get your Hard Rock souvenir, and people watch, but then leave. It's basically nothing more than an outdoor mall and a tourist trap.
