Buena Vista Irish Coffee

Cravings, Culture

A San Francisco institution, The Buena Vista is a bar/restaurant that is a ‘must go’ when in SF. It’s famous for bringing Irish coffee to America and serves about 2000 of them per day. Locals, tourists, and celebrities alike visit this establishment.

(A bit of trivia: In the movie, “When a Man Loves a Woman” with Andy Garcia and Meg Ryan: the first scene is shot in The Buena Vista.)

The Buena Vista is not secretive with their perfected Irish coffee recipe. It’s simple to make. I’m thinking especially for a Christmas morning.

***Irish coffees are not meant to be stirred. You should drink the coffee through the creme. Sláinte!
