Missed Oktoberfest? Its here every night!

Go there early or you will not be able to get a table. This is a very NOISY neighbourhood restaurant, if you ever watched the movie 'Beerfest' and wondered where they find the glass boots, Suppenkuche have them all. If you want to try drinking from the Glass Boot, this is the place to be. We... read more

I've eaten over 500 German meals in my lifetime and probably vistied over 50 different German restaurants in the US and in Germany. My problem with Suppenkuche is with their Potato Pancakes and Red Cabbage (these are German food staples). Their Potato Pancakes are listed as Potato Pancakes on their menu but should be listed as "Crispy or Deep Fried"... More

Thought it would be nice to eat here so booked 11 people in from work. Arrived to find the max they could take in a table was 8 so a very cramped evening began. As a European that eats in Germany often, I found the food very bland and to be honest I am at a loss at the positive... More

I was so excited finding out about this place after coming back from a month in Germany! It did not disappoint! They even carry my favorite beer - best beer in Munich according to the locals - and very hard to find here in the US - Augustinerbrau Munchen Edelstoff. Large portions, excellent food, huge beer menu. I had the... More

I love German resturant and food. When we got there, it was very cold and asked them to close the windows to reduce wind draft. Surprisingly, there were no table cloth and whole dinning table and chair were cold and stiff with birch color. Frankly no warm atmosphere. Service was great no question about it. Apparently they make the bread... More

Avoid this place unless there is no wait for a table. The hostess can't manage the seating and makes for a VERY long wait. The food was greasy and not worth the wait. Best part of this place is the beer.

We met some friends at Suppenkuche in San Fransisco. Great german sausages and snitzels and huge selection of german beers and wine. Huge portions and fast and friendly service. What a great find. We can wait to come back again!

....but be prepared for a wait! We were visiting the city and wanted to meet up with the daughter and son-in-law for a fun night out. We searched for unique places within walking distance of our hotel in the Haight and all agreed that Suppenkuche seemed to fit the bill. We got there at 5:30 on a Saturday evening and... More

Staying in Hayes Valley

Neighborhood Profile
Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a community park at its center and dozens of trendy businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish respite.
