We visited for lunch as we were in the Castro district. The diner is quirky and fun with little replica jukeboxes on the tables. We were served iced water as we looked at the menus. We had burgers and ommelettes which were cooked well and...More

The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San
Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart,
the Castro is a neighbourhood welcome to everyone. As
one of the first predominantly LGBT neighbourhoods in
the United States and currently its largest, it
remains one of the epicenters of activism in the
nation. Grand theatres and glitzy shops now compete
with bars and fashionable eateries for attention,
