Irish coffee anyone?
The Buena Vista is definitely a great place to go if you are visiting San Francisco for the first time or just really enjoy a good coffee & whiskey. Whether you like coffee & whiskey or not, it's an iconic place in the city where Irish coffee first started! Anytime a friend, family member, or client comes in town, I will take them here.
The location is also ideal - right behind Fisherman's Wharf on the corner of Hyde & Beach.
I remember the first time I ever walked in, it was ridiculously packed with people right up against each other. The person I was with held up a number 2 from afar to the bartender, and 5 minutes later, the bartender handed us two Irish coffees. I asked him how he did that without even telling the bartender what we wanted, and then realized that's pretty much the only drink that's served here...
