    An inviting oasis that is a perfect spot for a picnic, people watching, a leisurely stroll or to take work outdoors as there’s free Wi-Fi here.

    Lori's Diner is a must for a good old fashion American Breakfast. Try the Cable car breakfast on your 1st visit!

    Grab some lunch, take a seat on one of the benches in the square and just enjoy watching the throngs of tourists walking around. Make sure you arrive/leave by cable car.

    The Cheesecake factory roof seating gives you amazing views to the square. Be patient to get a table there, though.

    The Park itself is good. Needs more chairs and tables to sit. My reference standard is Bryant Park in Manhattan :)
