    Solid, but not the best coffee you can get in the neighborhood. It's more about the space & charm to me than the quality. Cash only & pricey.

    Incredible apple-caramel pie & excellent coffee (we had the Italian roast drip) in a authentic atmosphere.

    Francis Ford Coppola wrote The Godfather in this very shop, hopped up on the same heady brew as the Beats past. It's certainly an argument for the creative mojo engendered by Trieste espresso. Read more

    Great spot for strong coffee and a pastry. I love working from here and people watching all the "locals" who stop by.

    This former hangout for Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg is one of the city's original Italian coffeehouses. It still roasts its beans in SF and arguably produces some of the best espresso in town. Read more

    Cash only, great coffee. There is wifi and you can get power sockets if you look. In the evenings, their wine spritzers are great value for money too
