Alcatraz Pier 33 Cafe Sandwich

Posted by LOTGK on April 16, 2011

The Rock - Alcatraz Island

We were in San Francisco recently and of course we had to go and visit the Rock, Alcatraz Island and prison. We left from pier 33 and spent almost the entire day on the island exploring the grounds and prison. (I highly recommend Alcatraz Island as a must see when in San Francisco) One caveat, the island does not permit any food or beverage on the island except for bottled water.

The Rock Cooking

After spending approximately 7 hours on the rock, we were starving. Stepping off the boat that transported us back to Pier 33, we ventured into a souvenir shop and small cafe in search for a quick fix of food. As we waded through souvenir row we spied the food counter. It was old style cafeteria. Grab your tray, shuffle it down the counter and select a pre-made sandwich, salad, or other snack. (I felt a little like Blutto from the movie, Animal House)

Yes, It Is A Turkey Sandwich

I selected the turkey and cheese sandwich. At least I thought I did. It looked more like baloney but I was hungry. I added a Coke Zero to wash it down. This feast cost me $12 dollars, $9 dollars for the sandwich and $3 dollars for the Coke Zero.

The sandwich was stale. Even the baloney turkey. It was edible, barely. I still don’t know if it was turkey or some other mystery meat. Hell, it may not have even been meat. The Coke Zero was the saving grace. after drinking water all day, the Zero was a much needed bonus. Twelve dollars for this, not even close to a value. The Cafe is lucky Alcatraz is closed for charging that kind of money for that quality of food is a capital crime. I can almost sympathize with the inmates assigned to Alcatraz and the food they were forced to eat.

The Grassy Knoll Institute scores 1.5 out of 5 shots and does not recommend Pier 33 Alcatraz Cafe for lunch or dinner.

    Al Capone ate that exact sandwich. No, that exact sandwich, its 50 years old.

    Jesus Christ! I wouldn’t even charge that much in Hell.

  5. Moominboy said

    Well that’s tourist traps for ya. $3 for a Coke, that’s more expensive than in Sweden, and I’m talking at a diner.

      The weird part is, the week we were in San Francisco, the rest of the meals we had were very reasonable and good tasting. A good value all around.

    Did you see the bird man?

      Alas, no, the hospital section was blocked off and no one was permitted access. I did however see his cell, #42 where he briefly stayed before going to isolation.
