The Haight, San Francisco –
Lively and casual, The Little Chihuahua is a Mexican joint that takes its sustainable fare as seriously as it takes its hefty salsa bar, much to the appreciation of the laid-back young professionals, students, and diverse neighborhood regulars who pack the little pup for brunch.
Hand-carved wooden chairs emblazoned with vibrant, colorful suns give the small venue a festive atmosphere, aided by tightly-packed community seating that that invites strangers to meet and greet as they smell the fresh cut flowers on every table.
Weekends see large groups of boisterous college kids file in for carafes of sweet cocktails, though the rounds of sangria and passion fruit mimosas often take a backseat to the venue’s popular Mexican French toast – a bacon-wrapped tortilla smothered in maple syrup.
The brunch scene meets its rival during dinner hours, when an eclectic mix of young hipsters and old Haight hippies join after-work regulars as they tear into piles of veggie nachos and glasses of agave wine, eyeing the long line forming behind the self-serve salsa station.
A happening little eatery, The Little Chihuahua is an inviting locale for patrons looking to unleash their passion for fruity drinks and guilt-free meals that are far from tiny.
Young professionals, college kids, sangria and mimosa lovers, organic foodies, and long-time Haight hippies, early 20s to mid-30s+.
