This is a great spot if you're interested in a real, local bar. We came in with a small group, so they were a tiny bit curious as to how we found out about the place (another friend's recommendation). But, once we introduced ourselves and...More

Sweetie's is a tiny neighborhood bar that begs you to stop in. The patrons are very friendly and even found us a place to sit and introduced us to others. Prices were very reasonable and while we didn't have any food, it looked delicious! It...More

Sweetie's is an unusual combination of a pool hall, bar and art exhibit. Established in what appears to have been a garage, with extension to one of the home's living area, this modest place has a few seats at the bar, a couple of high...More

Walking in, everyone does turn round and look at you but saying a simple hello starts conversations. It seems to be a local bar which people know each other and also the bar tender knows everyone by name and what they drink! There is a...More

We were looking for a place to sit and grab a drink after a long day of sightseeing and we came across this place. It was busy the whole time and everyone was friendly. The bartender was great and a joy to talk to.

Kind of like Cheers, it seems that nearly everyone is known by name to the bar tender. It's such a tiny place that goes back a long way to a picnic table way behind the bar. The pictures back there are a hoot, especially the...More

The arousing aroma of fresh baked goods is second to none, from the moment that you walk into Sweeties. The baked items are fresh, appealing, delectable and delicious. This cute, quaint bakery shop has something for everyone. During our visit in California, we samples the...More

I don't know what's up with the other 3 reviews, but this spot is a small but quirky dive bar between Fisherman’s Wharf and North Beach. I work in the area and frequent this bar. Most of the people in the bar are locals and/or...More

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds
for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North
Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
