Well, seeing as no one else has answered yet...

What about Computer Modern TT (Mono)? It's a classic, and mixes well with
most fonts. I like its color (sturdy weight), which is probably good next
to Hoefler Text.

Alternatively, if you have MS Office's fonts, there's Lucida Sans Typewriter.

None of the Mono fonts shipped with Mac OS X are (typographically) very
satisfying: they're optimized for coding on-screen, and don't have enough
variants (/B,/I, etc.).
