I didn't have much luck in SF other than two places.  One is the Mariposa Bakery located in the Ferry Bldg.  It's in the Embarcadero District on the bay.  The entire bakery is gluten free.  The other place is called Pier 21 - it's also on the bay.  Not a great location for kids, but they do have burger and fries, so maybe you could order to go.  It's more of a sports bar.  I was very discouraged, but my husband walked in there, told them what we were looking for, and walked out with the manager who wanted to meet me. She has been eating gluten free for years.  That place was a life saver for me.  Several places along the bay actually told me that I should move out of line because they didn't have anything for me.  I was dumbfounded and disappointed.  Good luck, and if you find something, please post it as I'm in SF a few times per year.

Mariposa has 2 locations - Ferry Bldg & the edge of Berkley.  You can get bakery stuff & sandwiches.  We had good luck with IN & Out burgers.  There are all the usual chains.

If you want to visit Pacifica (lovely coastal town about 12 miles south of SF), The Surf Spot is an excellent place for gluten free dining.  They are closed on Mondays.  I know you specified no pizza, but they do make an awesome gluten-free pizza in addition to other lovely foods and desserts, and gluten free rolls made in-house.  There is an outdoor area in the back of the restaurant, with a volleyball court and a grass area where kids can run and play, if you don't want to sit indoors.

 

In Half Moon Bay you can eat at Fish and Frites, on Main Street.  I was so excited to be able to have real fish and chips, all gluten free.  They use a rice based batter for the gluten-free version, and a dedicated fryer.  You have a choice of fish, fresh from the fishing boats at Pillar Point Harbor. (and it's two shops away from a really cute toy store...)

 

I don't eat in SF very often, but San Francisco is a very gluten free friendly city.  Many restaurants have gluten-free menus and vegetarian, vegan, etc options as well.  As long as you aren't craving clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl, you should have little trouble finding places to eat.  

 

The Find Me Gluten Free app is a good resource for safe restaurants.  

 

I hope your trip is great and healthy!

Also, I second the Mariposa Bakery.  Their gluten-free cinnamon rolls are eye-rolling, stop what you are doing and enjoy them, tasty.

I'll third Mariposa Bakery....my kids love their chocoloate pumpkin muffins and just about everything else we have had from there.

 

The Bay Area is awesome for gluten-free dining -- try checking the find me gluten free website or app -- should find lots of options where sillyaks have left safe/not safe details.

 

Have a great trip :)

We went to Fog Harbor, The Daily Grill and Sausalito's Crab House and Prime Rib. I was able to find something gluten-free at each one. I do suggest these restaurants. The best was Nordstrom Cafe. The best service and they really cared. I hope this helps someone else on their gluten-free journey in SF. Also the Mariposa Bakery was good for bread and rolls. Yumm. :)

Its a bit spendy, more of a date place than a family placce. But the Stinking Rose has always been my stop when I visit SF. (I used to live there before I "knew" I had to be gluten-free)

 

And if you like Garlic, this place is great.

    • Alessio Fasano at Mass General.  or Maureen Leonard.  Mass General has a Celiac disease program at the Children's Hospital there in Boston. You literally could not be any closer to the best. Google it. Good luck.
    • You need to get a full celiac panel including ttg, dgp, ema and overall iga.  all of those should be ordered I would be suspicious of a doctor who did not order the entire panel.  a lot of people on here including myself started off with a GI doctor who was not too Savvy with celiac disease and ended up having to get second opinions.   you may want to consider getting the genetic tests as well however know that 30 to 40% of the population carries the gene it does not mean it will be activated. If you do not carry the gene It practically rules out Celiac. If you do carry it you will need to undergo further testing.  do not stop eating gluten until all the testing has been done. a lot of folks make that mistake as well. Keep us posted.   you should probably get some vitamin levels done as well iron, vitamin D, B12 to start.
    • These results, assuming you have been on a gluten free diet since the original tests in 2015, likely mean you are still being exposed to gluten which is why you still feel shitty.  Go see a GI or go on a non processed gluten free no going out to eat strict diet for 3 months and see how you feel. 
    • Kitty!  Thank you so much!  Reading these words is so reassuring....  I've had a horrid weekend googling 'white spot on tongue'  - so many horror stories about such a symptom.   I then read a few more articles which were more balanced and gave other things - such as teeth grinding and sharp teeth being a cause, which for my sanity's sake I'm trying to focus on!  Esp. as said sore is remaining stubbornly on my tongue! I must thank you for the links, too. Fascinating: In one it talks about 'Crazy muscle cramps in the form of stabbing pains in toes, calves, arches of feet, and backs of legs.' The Deficiency: Magnesium, calcium, and potassium. "If it's happening frequently, it's a tip-off that you're lacking in these,"  That's absolutely incredible - I never knew that, as at night I am being woken by these pains in my toes and feet.  Thank you so much.  I did used to supplement these things and have stopped.  I will look into this and try to eat more healthily and supplement too in the short to medium term while I recover.   I'm off to see my doctor tomorrow so having this information that you have sent in mind will be so helpful.   My tongue is the weirdest colour - my dentist spotted it straight away and said, 'Wow, you are anemic'.  So if my ferritin is low - which I know it is  - I'm probably running other deficiencies too.  Thank you so much again for taking the time to post.
