The Buena Vista is home to America's first, and arguably best, Irish Coffee. It has a very specific formula that has not changed since 1952 - and for good reason. The tastes are pure, identifiable, and never mixed - rich coffee, bold Irish Whiskey, and a dollop of the most flavorful whipped cream you've ever had. They serve 2,000 of these per day. Come for a drink, stay for a meal at one of the communal tables, where you're guaranteed to meet other interesting folks.
The verdict: Go, and please order an Irish Coffee. You may even see me there.
