Quick breakfast & lunch restaurant where Bay View meets the Harbor District
Sisu Cafe is the newest restaurant from veteran restaurateur Frank Sanchez and partner Ruben Piirainen, inspired by the flavors and aesthetics of Finnish culture. Sanchez's other credits include Sabrosa Cafe & Gallery and Taqueria Azteca.
We serve breakfast and lunch Tuesday through Sunday, featuring grab & go items for commuters and a leisurely coffeehouse atmosphere for others. There is a focus on fresh bakery - including some Finnish favorites - and menu items made from locally-sourced ingredients.
Sisu (pronounced SEE-soo) is an important word to Finns and American Finns, meaning tenacity, perseverance, chutzpah, dedication, resolve; commonly translated simply as guts.
The symbol ⌘ dates back to pre-historic Finland and is called hannunvaakuna. It is a symbol that is said to bring good luck.
