San Francisco Landmarks
Tadich Grill, the oldest restaurant in California, was founded in 1849 as the New World Coffee Stand, later renamed the New World Coffee Saloon. John Tadich immigrated to San Francisco in 1872 and found work at the New World Coffee Saloon. In 1887, he became the sole proprietor. In 1928, he sold the restaurant to the Buich family who continued to operate it with Tadich's name.
The two-story building with a green terra cotta façade was designed by Crim & Scott. The interior has not been changed since the 1920's.
