Classic 1935 SF Diner “It’s Tops” on Market Street Closes for Good
Sad news from Broke-Ass Stuart, the legendary “It’s Tops” Diner closes in forever in SF.
It’s Tops is known for its prominent neon signage at the corner of Market Street, the original 1935 diner atmosphere with knotty pine walls dripping with nostalgia, vinyl-clad booths, and counter stools, and authentic tabletop chrome “Seeburg” jukeboxes with music from the 50’s and famous for its awesome hotcakes, bacon-stuffed waffles, milkshakes and patty melts.
Though it appears to have been closed since the COVID-19 pandemic started, last Wednesday its prominent neon signage was taken down by the owner Bruce Chapman, sadly the Market street location is officially closed. The food wasn’t that great (let’s be honest) but it will still surely be missed.
