Tiny little place with two tables. A few choices for pastries, and some drinks. Cash only. I enjoyed my passion fruit slushie and mango mochi. The mango mochi was so good, I wish they didn't just take cash. My friend had an almond pastry that...More

As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's
Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique
neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic
streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs
awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on
dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who
gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or
practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,

Located in what is known as “The Heart of San Francisco’s Chinatown”, International Cafe (iCafe) is where the heart of the city beats. The cafe is situated across the street from the historical Portsmouth Square; where the discovery of gold in California was first announced, and where the city was given its name. iCafe originally opened its doors in 2001 as a delicatessen for cured Chinese sausages and meats traditionally hand made using family recipes. In 2012 it was transformed to a cafe, adding coffee and pastries alongside its menu of famous Chinese sausages. iCafe also serves as a space for the local community to come together, and where visitors can experience the convergence of West meets East. Come listen to Chinese Opera from the square every Saturday (1p-4:30p), while taking in the featured work by local graffiti artist Nate1 on our walls. All Hong Kong style floral arrangements on display in the cafe are designed by Krystle’s Flowers and are available to purchase.
