Buena Vista Café……translation?: "Good View!”

The Buena Vista Café in San Francisco is a VERY popular and historic bar at the very end of the Powell & Hyde Cable Car line. Famous for their Irish Coffee, this is a combo locals AND tourist favorite -a rarity for sure! In 1952 the owner challenged an international travel writer, Stanton Delaplane, to recreate a highly-touted "Irish Coffee” served at Shannon Airport in Ireland. He accepted the challenge and the two began experimenting until they reached success. Check out the YouTube link below to see the Irish Coffees being mixed en mass. As many as 2000 Irish Coffees are made each day. This is a fun place to stop in and enjoy a libation and a nice view of the bay, day or night. One of the easiest and most popular ways to reach the Buena Vista is by Cable Car. Any Powell & Hyde Street Cable car going towards Fisherman's Wharf will take you directly to its doorstep on the corner of Hyde and Beach Streets. (Of note, the offices of the AAO are one block away, on Beach Street)
