102-year-old Tosca Cafe opened for the first time after two years!

Located in North Beach, San Francisco, the 102-year-old Italian restaurant Tosca Cafe has reopened to serve indoors after being closed for nearly two years. The restaurant, which had to close due to the Covid-19 epidemic, started to welcome customers indoors earlier this month.

Opened as a bar in 1919 by three Italian immigrants at the center of the Italian immigrant community in the city at the time and decided to close in 2019 after changing hands, Tosca Cafe was taken over by chef Nancy Oakes, restaurateur Anna Weinberg, and designer Ken Fulk. The trio planned to open the restaurant in April 2020, but plans to open were delayed due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
