    Cakes look better than they taste, but the coffee and sunshine is a great break to discuss the works. Watch out for: "DONT TOUCH THE EXHIBITS " (the sculpture garden guard is serious about his work).

    Get the affogato - just do it!

    This isn't just any Blue Bottle. This one is part of SFMoma sculpture garden. No - I didn't have the Mondrian cake. But I took a photo of it!

    Sit in the rooftop garden for a bit and relax!

    The wait was ridiculously long for OK quality coffee. Half an hour with a non peak line? Really?

    half the pleasure of having coffee here is sipping it out of the heftiest Heath stoneware. the rooftop and ginkgo trees don't hurt either

    Their iced coffee comes filled with cream and something sweet. If you want an iced coffee... Iced americano is ok.

    Enjoy your New orleans style ice coffee in the rooftop garden;) Lovely staff!

    One of the greatest places in San Francisco to sit and read while having a nice beverage. Get your cafe on while it lasts, SFMoMA closes for a major remodel in mid-2013!

    Seriously, don't go here around 3-3:30, the line is really long then. Wait until 4.

    Friday afternoons draw quite the well dressed artsy geeky hacker crowd. Try other days for a more solitary experience.

    Please don't merge this venue with the main SFMOMA venue. The cafe is distinct, just like the museum store and rooftop terrace.

    Om nom nom on Mondrian, Thiebaud, Cartagena with your favorite Blue Bottle concoction.

    The pastries are a work of art you can eat.

    Affogato if you're in the mood for something sweet, pour-over coffee if you're not.

    You can relax in the sculpture garden with your coffee, if you can find a spot to sit.

    Some Blue Bottle coffee on the rooftop in the sun is one of the best afternoon date ideas in San Francisco. And a check in earns you a free temporary tattoo!

    Need admission to the museum to be able to get here.

    Best affogato I've ever tried. Aroma of the coffee welcomes you even before you step foot to e rooftop. great coffee.

    An annual membership to SFMOMA is worth it just for the shorter lines at this Blue Bottle! Oh and try the Mondrian or the Thibault cake!
