It is not easy to keep Specialtys as a landmark. They are everywhere providing nice food along with Peet's Coffee. Fruit Tarts and Quiche were brilliant. They are good options for vegetarians. Good to grab a cup of hot drink with breakfast.

Our breakfast (bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich) was great and reasonably priced. The muffins were also great. The lady taking the order wasn't very pleasant.

I previously worked in the Financial District in San Francisco and I returned today to Specialty's Care & Bakery longing to experience once again their amazing sandwiches. I was not disappointed and I'm certain now that my addiction to Speciality's is assured.

Made to order deli sandwiches, soups and bakery goods plus terrific coffee and tea. A handy place to get a quick and delicious lunch that's a bit out of the routine.

A good place for a quick breakfast; service is quick and efficient and you can sit in the window and watch the world rush by while you eat.

I get a salad from Specialty's every time I'm in the area! They are large and filling and made to order. Don't miss out on this spot!

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of
life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the
narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
