For years now, it has always been on the agenda.. When in SF, stop off at certain places while day tripping in the Haight Ashbury area. Lots to see and lots of good foods. But, if your looking for a slice of NY Pie... You gotta stop here.. The pizza is one of the best around..

We were exploring the Haight-Ashbury area, got hungry and thought we should try the pizza slices. I had the garlic pizza ...enough garlic to kill a vampire but no, they are sweet and soft and moist. It is not possible to kill a vampire with these subtle tasting stuff! The artichoke pizza was also tasty and good and so was... More

I returned to Escape from NY Pizza after 20 years and couldn't believe it still existed! The pesto pizza was exactly as I remembered and the price was right after a long day of walking and touring the city. A great stop to take a load off and eat. The only down side is there is no public restroom.

Pizza is so crispy and I no longer care about toppings. It's located in the centre of downtown and serves as a perfect place to grab a quick bite. I am a bit disappointed that they dont offer any side dish though... i guess i am spoilt here in singapore

Nice little place in on Haight Street. Pizza was nice with a good thin crispy base. Lots of memorabilia and photos on the walls to have a look at. Overall a nice little pizzeria with good pizza at reasonable prices.

I got a slice of mushroom pizza and it was average. It was a bit pricy at about $4.50. If you're looking for something quick, this should do it.

What more can I say? I love New York style pizza and this place makes nothing but. It's a tiny place that's perfect for a quick slice and a Coke. Right on Haight Street and a short walk to the park.

Pizza was the answer when I asked my grandchildren what they wanted to eat and when I asked them "where" they as a chorus said "Escape from New York Pizza" - I ordered a large pizza with one half plan and one half sausage. The price was $27. very steep for a pizza that took 1 hour to deliver. However,... More

We just finished visiting twin peaks and decided to go to Haight Ashbury for visiting and lunch and we decided to try some local pizza and we were a little bit disappointed. We are from Philadelphia and have so many mom and pop family pizza places that I guess I am spoiled but this pizza is only ok. The crust... More

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

Neighbourhood Profile
The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops. While the Summer of Love ended decades ago, Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through its streets can still feel like stepping back in time. A must-see neighbourhood for most music fans, it’s easy to see why these streets attracted the likes of the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. You’ll likely be content in The Haight day or night, just be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
