Excerpt from book:
Three times destroyed by fire, and three times rebuilt, the Cliff House stands on a rocky promontory, overlooking the Sundown Sea, where San Francisco's beach is laved by the AT THE waves of the Ocean. Since the first CLIFF Cliff House was erected this has been HOUSE a place famous the world over because of its scenic beauty and its overlooking the Seal Rocks, where congregate a large herd of sealions disporting much to the edification of the visitors. Appealing from its romantic surroundings, interesting because of its history, and attractive through its combination of dashing waves and beautiful beach extending miles in one direction, with the rugged entrance to Golden Gate in the other, with the mysterious Farallones in the dim distance, the Cliff House may well be classed as one of the great Bohemian restaurants of San Francisco. Lovers of the night life know it well for it is the destination of many an automobile party. During the day its terraces are filled with visitors from abroad who make this a part of their itinerary, and here, as they drink in the wondrous beauty of the scene spread before them, partake of well prepared and well served dishes such as made both the Cliff House and San Francisco well and favorably known and whose fame is not bounded by the continent. But for a most pleasant visit to the Cliff House one should choose the early morning hours, and go out when the air is blowing free and fresh from the sea, the waves cresting with amber under the magic touch of theeasterly sun.
