    in the Civil War, this grand square has become the

    containing the largest number of upscale department
    stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in
    the city. It's a large open area where tourists and
    locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by,
    enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and

    There wasn't a lot for breakfast. 2-3 cold cereals, toast, plain mini muffins, orange juice & coffee. If you want something substantial, you may want to go out for breakfast.
