The St. Francis Fountain, one of the oldest restaurants in San Francisco, is for sale. The restaurant started in 1918 as a candy maker, soda fountain and ice cream parlor, and has evolved into a classic diner with a modern twist. This establishment has been a part of San Francisco's history, and remains beloved by the community. It is located on vibrant 24th Street, in San Francisco's hip and historic Mission District. Currently, the St. Francis Fountain is open for breakfast and lunch. The inside of the diner has counter service and a main dining room area. There is also outdoor street and parklet seating. Additionally, the inside area has a second dining room which is not currently being used. This space could be used to expand the capacity of the St. Francis Fountain, but because it has its own separate entrance, this space could be used for a second or off-shoot concept. The St. Francis Fountain is a legacy business, and receives payment from the City to keep the business operating. This means they are in a position to provide a favorable lease to a new tenant. There is tremendous potential for a new owner-operator to expand the hours of operation and maintain the spirt of this historic restaurant while updating the concept with their own ideas. Please direct all questions and inquiries to Patrick Totah, the listing agent, who can be reached at 415-548-1064 or Please do NOT direct any questions about the sale of the business to current employees of the St. Francis Fountain.
