Straw is a restaurant in Hayes Valley, San Francisco that serves carnival-inspired comfort food. Dinner, brunch, happy hour and catering. All carny. All the time.


Straw is your Hayes Valley neighborhood spot serving carnival-inspired comfort food. There are accents from your favorite carnival throughout our decor and menu. Oh yeah, and a Tilt-A-Whirl booth.

Picture yourself strolling the midway with food in one hand and a (spiked) drink in the other. Put 'em down for a second and win your special someone a prize. We want you to feel like the host of your own party every time you come to Straw, and to leave carefree and wide-eyed. If you've been in, then you already know.

We're thinking about our futures together. Let's be the first to throw a carnival on the moon. Let's teach all the kids in the world to juggle. Let's make water fountains that bubble strawberry lemonade. Let's bring Rodney Carney back to the Warriors and have a dunk contest on Hayes Green. Let's do a flash mob with kazoos. Let's turn skeeball into an Olympic sport. Let's elect the first carny president. 

Let's get that proverbial brass ring from the carousel, on the same horse. Together.
