Operated by Acquolina Restaurant in North Beach, Coit Tower Café will also feature hot and cold drinks, pastries, pizza by the slice and frozen yogurt. Visitors to Coit Tower can also refill their water bottles at the café, which will operate from 9:30am to 6pm daily.

Located at 1 Telegraph Hill Boulevard on the edge of the Coit Tower parking lot, the kiosk shares sweeping views of San Francisco. The San Francisco Recreation and Park Commission approved the project in 2016.
