"ride the cable car from Union..." Cable Cars Tip by gkitzmil

Cable Cars, San Francisco: 29 reviews and 33 photos


Favorite thing: <font color=blue size=+.5>ride the cable car from Union Square to Fisherman's Wharf. If you take the Powell-Hyde car you'll und up at the Buena Vista where you can have the original Irish Coffee. That's right the first Irish Coffee ever made was made in this cafe. From inside the Buena Vista you can see the Golden Gate Bridge and watch them turn around the cable cars!!</font>

Fondest memory: Irish Coffee at the Buena Vista, pasta at Firenza by night (se below), martinis from the bar in the St. Francis hotel (not this trip but once in my past)!

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
