A San Francisco restaurant is facing backlash after its staff denied service to three police officers. The owners of the restaurant said the eatery didn't feel comfortable allowing the police officers to eat there because the presence of their weapons goes against the establishment's "safe space" ideology. However, the owners of the restaurants are walking back the original decision to boot the cops.

On Friday, three San Francisco police officers frequented the Hilda and Jesse restaurant – that offers "Breakfast without boundaries." The police officers were seated, but shortly after, the "staff felt uncomfortable with the presence of their multiple weapons."

The owners of Hilda and Jesse reportedly issued a response that said, "Our restaurant is a safe space – particularly for queer and BIPOC individuals."

The brunch spot wrote on social media that they "respect the San Francisco Police Department and are grateful for the work they do." The owners – Kristina Liedags Compton and Rachel Sillcocks – said the cops are welcome into the restaurant "when they are off duty, out of uniform, and without their weapons."

According to KNTV, the San Francisco Police Officers Association issued a statement on the refusal of service.
