On a cold day, nothing hits the spot better than an Irish Coffee...and what an AMAZING Irish Coffee it was. The service was fantastic, and the food was phenomenal! A must when visiting San Fran!

Definitely stop in on an even stroll. Great classic original Irish coffee. Decor is old school, all goes with the vibe. Definitely a must stop

There is really only one good reason to visit- iconic Irish coffees. They cornered the market on the perfect glasses for their coffee drinks. We visited on a Thursday night and actually got a seat at the bar. Weekends are packed to the gills.

Irish coffee was excellent, but probably wouldn't eat there. The place was packed and was constantly getting bumped into by staff trying to get by.
