The food you eat here is prepared by people who decided to turn from a life of crime or addiction. Most employees live upstairs at Project Bayview with mentors. They live and serve as a family. The garden you see was built by residents of Bayview who want to see their community turn around. For some, it was their first time working with soil, planting, and swinging a hammer. The proceeds of Huli Huli are used to turn the fortunes of those in deep poverty. We have already seen amazing things happen in the short time we have been able to assist.

Forty years ago, a cup of coffee was nothing more than a caffeine delivery vehicle. It didn't really matter how it tasted, it just had to slap you awake in the morning or prop you up through a long afternoon. But in the last decade or so, things have changed. A lot. A few people scattered across the country discovered how amazing a cup of coffee can be when you source the beans directly from farmers you know. When you roast the beans yourself in such a way that nothing intrinsic to the coffee is removed. When you brew the coffee with down-to-the-second precision. Ritual has been a pioneer in this delicious shift in coffee consciousness since we opened our doors on Valencia Street in 2005 and

Drinks & Nightlife
Speakeasy Ales & Lagers has been defiantly brewing small batches of beer in San Francisco’s Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood since 1997. The brewery started with a single iconic beer, still made today, called Prohibition Ale. The hoppy amber beer embodies the spirit of bootleggers and gangsters who persevered when America’s taps ran dry. The brewery quickly gained a loyal following with bold, complex beers, and striking 1920s imagery. In 1999, Big Daddy IPA was added to the lineup and became San Francisco’s best-selling IPA. The beer is still Speakeasy’s kingpin, representing 40% of the brewery’s sales, among a wide array of acclaimed beers, from session ales to bourbon barrel-aged stouts.

The Meadery is open for drop in tastings and bottle sales every Saturday from Noon to 6pm. We started with the concept of creating a local product and – eventually - a national brand. We strive to buy raw materials, make our meads and sell as local to our production as possible. Buying local honey allows us to work closely with beekeepers to ensure that the honey is the purest and highest quality we can find. We support beekeepers that are producing honey using sustainable practices and are pollinating organic crops or very remote areas. Selling only regionally reduces waste of our valuable resources and helps strengthen local economies.

Bayview Park supports perhaps the most diverse assemblage of plants and animals in the natural areas system. Its grassland has some of the most beautiful wildflower displays in San Francisco. Other plant communities here include coastal scrub, eucalyptus and oak groves, and the largest Islais cherry population in the city. On a sunny day you are likely to encounter western fence lizards, California alligator lizards, or one of many non-poisonous snakes, such as the common garter snake, Pacific gopher snake, or Pacific ring-neck snake. Red-tailed hawks are often seen soaring overhead. Great horned owls rest in the notches of trees during the day, and woodpeckers can be heard hammering.
