The Best Mall Food And Union Square Eats For Last-Minute Shoppers

You’ve been shoved and spritzed, and have been schlepping all day. And suddenly, you find yourself in front of a table of sweater options for Aunt Tammy, starving and in a low-blood-sugar lull, unable to make a decision. No one should be expected to go with her gut when it’s entirely empty. Well, standing by, is your personal concierge (ahem, us!) re: what to eat in S.F.'s holiday-shopping epicenter, aka the Westfield Mall and Union Square. From a banh mi cafe to an authentic Neopolitan pizzeria, we've got 8 hotspots (that aren't Subway or Starbucks) where you can catch your second wind before conquering that sale rack.
