It was a freezing night when we headed into Burns Vista. Irish coffees and hot chocolates were a welcome warming beverage. We also enjoyed appetizers before we headed back out for our evening.

Delicious Irish Coffee that they have down to a science! Cute place, just don’t ask for regular coffee. Another couple asked for espresso and it was almost a joke. They left. I would recommend stopping after hopping off the trolley!

I visited here for a quick beer while in town. Almost everyone there was drinking Irish coffee, and that was certainly very popular. Great service speed to knock up an Irish coffee that quickly !

Dropped into this famous bar (where the Irish Coffee was 'invented') for a drink after a good walk along the north shore in SF. Can only say we were bitterly disappointed. The bar was attractive and we were hopeful, but our visit was totally spoiled...More

This has been here for decades, & for good reason. They serve coffee with cream, whisky & Bailey's Irish Cream. It gets very crowded in here. Take a seat at the bar or s table if you can find one.
