    Sit at one of the green tables outside and make fun of all the webnerds sitting in the park...even though you're one yourself.

    Caffe Centro runs an express window that is sometimes (not always) faster than standing in line indoors. Try the counter panini when you're in a hurry.

    Old skool dot commers lunched here at ground during the first boom. Most of you reading this are too young to know what I am talking about.

    Best coffee cake in town. They don't always have and it goes quick when they do. If you're special you will get to experience it. Good luck.

    The line inside is always quicker

    Best bagels in SoMA! Some how the cream cheese stays solid and cool on a toasted bagel. Perfect! You should try it :)

    if theoutaide line is long, look inside. often much shorter.

    I recommend the veggie sando! I think it's the tastiest one they have and I'm not even a vegetarian

    Cool little spot in South Park. If line is too long and all you want is a drip, you can grab a cup and drop amount in provided box. No need to wait for cashier.

    Jonathan C. · April 29, 2013
  • Rachael C.

    Great coffee, I am convinced they brew w/ cinnamon. Cash jar at register to bypass the line if you're just getting drip.

    Stephanie D. · September 22, 2009
  • David D.

    The only reason to go here is to eat in the park. But you don't have to go here to do that. So you should go somewhere else. Unless you like waiting in line. Then this is a really good spot.

    Bring your own food to eat by the green table in the park. Their salads aren't as good as the setting.

    Francesca C. · April 13, 2013
  • Michael R.

    Their coffee doesn't taste like they love it. Actually it doesn't taste good at all.

    Michael R. · April 12, 2013
  • Paulette B.

    Get the pasta portofino salad and iced mocha, and hang out for a little while. The Gipsy Kings playing in the background will make up for there being no Internet.

    Paulette B. · March 29, 2013
  • Liza S.

    Offer to watch thy neighbors' gadgets while you order. He/she will do the same.

    Claire D. · May 30, 2012

    Get the turkey sandwich, but ask for it "hot." Makes the sandwich ten times better

    Adam M. · May 13, 2012
  • Liza S.

    Hot coffee in a tall glass with a spoon.

    Liza S. · April 3, 2012
  • Blythe R.

    Despite the info on yelp, there's no wifi here. Come here to find people talking to each other and writing in and reading from actual books.

    Blythe R. · January 23, 2012

    A delicious retreat from painting. The lattes and sandwiches are to die for. Try one! (Or two)
