Over the weekend, Hilda and Jesse, a new all-day breakfast spot
in North Beach, refused to serve three members of the San
Francisco Police Department, as now reported by multiple media
outlets, and even Fox. The restaurant’s owners originally posted
on Instagram, saying that on Friday, December 3, they seated
three police officers in uniform, but that “our staff felt
uncomfortable with the presence of their multiple weapons,” and
that they “politely asked them to leave.” Chief of police
William Scott responded on Twitter, saying he encourages
officers to support local businesses and respects the wishes of
the restaurant, even though he found them “discouraging and
personally disappointing.”

The restaurant received a social media storm: As of publication
time, even though it only opened a little more than a month ago,
Hilda and Jesse has received nearly a thousand reviews on Yelp,
with a one-star rating average. The page is currently frozen due
to unusual activity. The owners subsequently apologized on
Instagram, saying “we made a mistake” and “handled this badly,”
and apologized to the SFPD. In an interview with ABC7, co-owner
Rachel Sillcocks said, “It’s not about the fact that we are anti
police. It’s about the fact that we do not allow weapons in our
restaurant. We were uncomfortable, and so we politely asked them
to leave. It has nothing to do with the fact that they were
officers, and everything to do with the fact that they were
carrying guns.” [ABC7, SF Chronicle, SFGate, SFist]

Burn this shithole down.
