This is a fun place to meet all kinds of interesting people. Not only was the Irish coffee great, so was the food. Did not know they had food. My friends and I were happy with our food. The service great. Our server was very friendly and very attentive. Making sure that are drinks were not empty. Would recommend this place. GooglePlace - July 2017

Oldest continuously operating cafe in San Francisco. This is the place where the first Irish Coffee was created in Nov. 1952. It is still one of the main reasons for its customer base. Located just across from base/starting point of the famous Powell/Hyde street cable car line. Also serves a great breakfast all day. GooglePlace - July 2017

I can confirm that they make a lot of Irish Coffees and for good reason. Their Irish Coffee was great and had a good kick. The Country Sausage Benedict was delicious and the best part is that breakfast is served all day. The setting was nice and the service was great. GooglePlace - July 2017

This place was awesome! We walked in around 3 pm on a Sunday afternoon and were able to grab two seats at the bar easily. The Irish coffee ($10) was delicious and worth getting. The hot chocolate was also delicious. You can get the recipe for the Irish coffee and take your receipt around the corner to their gift shop for free postcards. The service in both the restaurant and gift shop was great. GooglePlace - May 2017

As true as it's name, Buena Vista is definitely offers beautiful views of the Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge in Fisherman's Wharf. The place is busy, but never have to wait. The staff is courteous. The Irish Coffee is a nice strong "coffee" to have in the late afternoon too! WORTH THE VISIT!!!! WILL GO BACK...WISH I LIVED IN SF JUST FOR THIS QUAINT CAFE!!!!!! GooglePlace - May 2017
