"Menu only includes Bacon Lettuce and Mayo sandwiched with Crab, Radish
and Tomato sauce. So, please ask for them as the combo “BLM-CRT special”."

I would not support or recommend
a San Francisco business that discriminates against the SFPD.
Shame on you!!!
May the eggs of a Thousand Cockroach's hatch and infest your kitchen.
I hope the Health Department Shuts you down....

This is a "safe" space.
One that you can not come to when your job is to keep people safe.
This is a "weapon free" zone.
But they don't realize everything from the fire extinguisher on the wall
to the chef's knife becomes a weapon.
This establishment is "free of discrimination", but it refuses to
seat/serve certain people.
Since weapons make them uncomfortable they need to turn in their knives to
law enforcement and only cook with spoons. No weapons allowed!
Owners and managers should be ashamed of themselves. Investors need to
pull their money and this place needs to be boycotted.

I have faced discrimination and I know how it feels like, the reason why I
started yelping.

If your customers can trust your chef with a knife and the food, I am sure
you could trust those cops with guns who were doing their job too.

The restaurant owner should have at least provided them with an option of
takeout, with some complimentary food if they were not comfortable with
guns on premises.

Worst food ever. I refuse to eat here again because you refused to serve
on-duty police officers in uniform working this neighborhood to protect
your business. I hope your restaurant is robbed at gunpoint or vandalized,
Better yet, I hope it burns to the ground. And I will totally support the
San Francisco Police Department's refusal to respond. There are thousands
of other restaurants in the Bay Area which do not discriminate against
paying customers that I'm happy to support. Since the owners felt
"uncomfortable," with uniformed police officers dining in, I suspect that
the restaurant's staff are paroled criminals.

P.S. - If you want to "dine & dash", this is the best meal spot for you.
No police are welcome here by the owners.

Given that this business has decided to Discriminate against first
responders, I reserve the right to Call For A Boycott Of Hilda and Jesse.
Because if Hilda and Jesse can discriminate against an officer on Lunch,
then what is to stop them from doing the same to Health Care Workers due
to a fear of COVID.

I am an Out Gay Man in SF , and I find the misrepresentation that the
LGBTQ community needs protection from the SFPD to be offensive.

Obama Woke San Francisco restaurant now apologizes for asking armed police
officers to leave

SAN FRANCISCO - A San Francisco restaurant that ignited a frenzy when the
owner and staff asked three armed police officers in uniform to leave
because their weaponized dress made them feel uncomfortable has now
apologized for the request, acknowledging that it handled the situation

In an Instagram post on Sunday afternoon, Rachel Sillcocks and Kristina
Liedags Compton, co-owners of Hilda and Jesse in North Beach, wrote a mea
culpa after getting battered on social media – and in Yelp reviews – for
asking the officers to leave their restaurant last week. They declined to
speak in person, citing the verbal attacks they were getting. Still,
brunch was brisk earlier in the day and the restaurant was full of

"We made a mistake and apologize for the unfortunate incident on Friday
when we asked members of the San Francisco Police Department to leave our
restaurant," they said in their post. "We are grateful to all members of
the force who work hard to keep us safe, especially during these
challenging times. We hope this will be a teachable moment for us as we
repair and continue to build bridges with the SFPD. These are stressful
times, and we handled this badly."

Their statement shows an about-face from what they wrote earlier this
weekend, explaining that they asked the officers, strapped with guns, to
leave the restaurant because it made staff and potential customers feel

The controversy was kicked off when the staff at Hilda and Jesse posted on
Instagram that they asked three officers to leave their restaurant on

"Three armed and uniformed police officers came in to dine at Hila and
Jesse. Shortly after seating them, our staff felt uncomfortable with the
presence of their multiple weapons. We then politely asked them to leave.

"At Hilda and Jesse, the restaurant is a safe space," the post continued.
"The presence of the officers (sic) weapons in the restaurant made us feel
uncomfortable. We respect the San Francisco Police Department and are
grateful for the work they do. We welcome them into the restaurant when
they are off duty, out of uniform and without their weapons."


The statement also added that "this is not a political statement, we did
what we thought was best for our staff."

The public conversation comes at a time when the nation is grappling with
a defund the police movement on the one hand, and an opposing call for
increased officers to deal with a rising number of homicides and retail
thefts on the other.

San Francisco Police Chief William Scott tweeted a response on Saturday
evening: "The San Francisco Police Department stands for safety with
respect, even when it means respecting wishes that our officers and I find
discouraging and personally disappointing.

"I believe the vast majority of San Franciscans welcome their police
officers, who deserve to know that they are appreciated for the difficult
job we ask them to do — in their uniforms — to keep our neighborhoods and
businesses safe."

The chief got a mixed response from his Tweet thread.

One man wrote: "Send those officers over to Alameda..I'll buy them lunch
at any restaurant they want to go to in my city ..we don't discriminate

But another person countered: "there is nothing safe or respectful about
being heavily armed in a restaurant, if you don't understand how it can
make the average citizen uncomfortable you're not doing very well with
your 'community engagement.'"

In real life, people had different opinions on the polite stay-away order
– and then the change of heart – too.

Standing outside the restaurant, Scarlet Bush on Sunday told KTVU that she
actually thought it was nice that the employees at the restaurant felt
safe to express themselves.

Kevin Clauson of San Francisco took the side of the restaurant, saying
that "anytime the police enter our community, it always makes me less
comfortable, at all times."

And yet, Terence Ng of Hayward said that police always have their weapons,
which they carry to protect citizens. He said with the uptick in crime,
he's happy to have the armed officers around. He also thought it was rude
to allow the officers to enter the building and be asked to leave after
they sat down.

This is not the first time the issue of welcoming, or not, police officers
into a restaurant has reared its head in the Bay Area.

In March 2018, an Oakland police sergeant was denied service by employees
at Hasta Muerte Coffee, a proudly anti-establishmenti coffee shop in the
Fruitvale District.

The move sparked protests outside of the coffee shop where self-described
patriots toting American flags descended there, shouting at customers
patronizing the shop.

KTVU's Gregg Liggins contributed to this report.
