Cafe No More for me and my friends! – I so agree with the people who have experienced RUDE and UNWELCOMING behavior of owners of this cafe. I dont understand why people suppor this cafe. Based on their crappy customer service, this place needs to shut down immediately.

I live two blocks from this place and I use to come in from time to time for coffee or a salad and get a few hours of work in during the day. That all changed when I stopped in earlier to use the internet briefly and the lady came by my table and Outloud (in front of everyone) told me "aint nothing free honey. our rent is $7,000 a month. if you want to come in here, you should consider becoming a customer and you need to buy something from here so get up and buy". I was going to stay there and order a Coffee and Dinner and was going to bring in two more of my friends who would also order from there and work for a few hours. But I changed my mind and left this place and told my friends not to bother coming here anymore. So unprofessional and so unnecessary, I will never support this business again. And I am going to tell everyone in my networks NOT to support them. Sad, Karma! comes back... this is not how you run business in a city like San Francisco. This will catch up to you soon, just watch! I am massively disappointed in this cafe and would not recommend to anyone.

The Cafe International: Fine the Way It Is!. – Aw, forget that previous bozo's lukewarm insulting review. You want bright lights, clean shining fake floors, go someplace else, like a hospital cafeteria. You want coffee with soul and comfy grunginess? This is it!

I got to know the new year 2000 Haight, years after being a weekend visitor there in the hippie heyday of 1966 -'69.One feature that's a breath of fresh coffee is the Cafe International. They support creativity in artwork, song, poetry and music. Check out their mural.

Their hot and cold coffee drinks are the greatest. Come get your rich liquid steaming dark delights here.

Keeping a place like this going is no easy task, but they're still here and thriving.

There's open mics on Fridays hosted by Gordon Tyler. Richard Rice's Hoot nights happen all year, one Saturday each month.

Parking is nearly non-existent. Try not to drive - save money for more of those flower-shaped frosted butter cookies. I suggest you leave your car at a nice well-lit place and Muni to the Cafe.

The Haight's got the best record and clothes stores. Try Rasputin's near the McDonald's. The 2nd hand clothes stores are real fun. Buffalo Exchange, Aardvark's Odd Ark and more...

Be ready for panhandlers. It's the Haight - an interesting neighborhood.

'San Francisco is a place where people end up'. Good and bad ones. It's the Haight.

But don't be discouraged; Get the best-tasting nutritious food, juices and coffee while doing your part to keep this great place alive & well.

The Cafe International: It's a warm friendly breeze of coffee-scented hospitality.
