Westsiders, Part 1: The Art Bistro

The Art Bistro

By Ricky Silva

There’s a little-known Richmond District gem off of 31st Avenue and Clement Street called  The Art Bistro. Tastefully decorated with a friendly and professional staff, it is a family-owned cafe serving bagel breakfasts, fresh fruit, warm pasties, coffee and tea and more.

Ms. Tai opens up shop seven days a week, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. On quiet afternoons, locals line up on the sidewalk to pick up some goodies. The cafe’s signature is their $1 Thai tea. You can’t miss it. Right out front of the space hangs a large banner advertising the tea screaming: “$1 MINI THAI TEA.”

It is almost impossible to find anything in San Francisco being sold for a dollar, and the Thai tea they serve up does not disappoint. Ms. Tai spreads her joy as she serves customers with the brightest smile on her face. She shares even more love through the food donation bin out front that gives back to the families financially hurt due to COVID. It’s evident that The Art Bistro holds strong relationships with their customers and they deserve to make even more with the many citizens of San Francisco. Give them a visit and tell ’em Ricky sent you.
