The Buena Vista has been an institution for Irish Coffee in San Francisco since I can remember in the early 1960s. Even if you never, ever drink Irish Coffee, you have to come in here to experience the vibe that is the City.

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!
