Why locals recommend it
Any time I take my dogs in this classic Mission district bar (the well behaved ones!), I just let them off and they just roam around happily while I play pool or pinball. Fellow patrons and staff welcome them with pats and cuddles. Plus they always have guest microbrews I’ve never heard of. This is a historic spot-in 1906 it survived the big earthquake and the owner at the time put in the fancy wooden back bar, which has been the same ever since.

Great atmosphere for drinks with friends. Over 100 years old this old world saloon is charming with great craft beers.

Café
“A casual and very good cafe that's been a part of the mission district for a long long time. Many local's favorite! Very good sandwiches, salads and pizzas. Not only a cafe, you can grab wine and beer and there is a beautiful outdoor patio with heat lamps. They still play bluegrass at night sometimes! love this place!”
