    Peek around the corner to see which line is faster, the main counter or the side window. Also, check out the new Blue Bottle coffee kiosk out front and sit in one of the wood booths.

    Coffee was pretty good. I wouldn't say it's the best cup of coffee in San Francisco. Definitely not. Would be good to be able to tip after instead of before you taste your coffee.

    Blue Bottle is a well-known name in the Bay Area coffee scene—their Ferry Building location is a takeaway-only spot, with homemade liege waffles and side window to cut the longer, tourist-filled line.

    The same quality Blue Bottle you've come to expect from the billions of locations around the city. Go to the kiosk outside on Embarcadero if the line for the location inside is too intense.

    Get a macchiato or cappuccino as the latte I had was pretty weak. If the line inside is too long, there's actually a kiosk location out front on the sidewalk. Great post ferry coffee stop.
