About Us La "promenade" comes from the French word which means to take a leisure walk or stroll usually along a park or waterfront. La Promenade Café was carefully named since we are located near Golden Gate Park and Ocean Beach. We opened our doors for business in June 2013. However, this café has a long history dating back to over 35 years! It has been renovated with new wooden floors, lighting and mural paintings depicting French café scenes which gives it its charm. It is one of the biggest and most spacious café in the Outer Richmond District. Whether you are coming in to study, get some work done or just to have a good time, take a stroll down to our café and we'll have plenty of seats for you. We hope to make your experience at La Promenade Café an enjoyable one!
