Pat's Cafe, a nine-year-old American restaurant tucked away on Taylor street by Columbus Avenue in North Beach, has found a perfect balance to give locals and tourists alike a true taste of our city.
It's a lot to take in, but once inside, it's difficult to leave. Pat's Cafe may be a bit of an eyesore outside, with its mustard yellow exterior, but the interior gleams. Bells jingle to greet all those who walk in, only followed by the welcome of tangerine-splashed walls, colorfully-tiled floors, and the smile of a server. It's cozy, to say the least. Sunlight floods through windows on the street-side of the cafe, allowing customers to watch the trolley cars pass by filled with tourists craning their necks to capture the best photos of the Wharf. San-Francisco-themed photographs and artwork adorn the tangerine walls, and the air is filled with conversations from both tourists and locals, and swing music from the radio.
