You may be thinking of Portofino. They had gigantic sandwiches and huge mugs of hot chocolate. You could sit at outdoor tables along the railing. The hot chocolate was so good when the fog rolled in.

Judith Sims wrote this memory in the Los Angeles Times in 1987:

1967, THE SUMMER OF LOVE : There Was a Brief Moment When the Sun Really Shone

I'll get right to the point: 1967 was one of the best years of my life.

My mornings were beautiful, most of them spent at Portofino in the top of Ghirardelli Square, sipping an exotic coffee that looked like a sundae and staring out across the bay to the Golden Gate. Maybe the Summer of Love could have flowered in Cincinnati, but it sure was prettier in San Francisco.
