    Small alley coffee shop that's really popular with a lot of people who work in SoMa. They're cash only.

    Not too important when going in to get great coffee, but they played awesome music on my last visit. Had a happy retro rockabilly vibe and that made my experience more warm and welcoming.

    Excellent coffee. They only take cash though, which is a little ugh. Blue bottle ftw.

    Great coffee. Blue bottle. Really great hipstery vibe. No place to sit buy great art to look at. Awkward "should I pay or order first" moments. Only cash. Get points for every visit. 200 = free coffee

    Try the Cento, their take on a Gibraltar. It comes in a cute glass and has just a bit more milk in it.

    Cento is one of those places when you're old and gray and run into someone somewhere and you both worked south of market "back in the day" and connect with "omigod of course Cento was the best ever!"

    If you don't need something to go get the macchiato. Cento bars are good too.

    While the baristas here tend to be less friendly and talkative than folks at other shops, they make excellent espresso drinks and their prices are affordable compared to other places.

    Nifty little alley coffee shop. Detach from your desk, take a stroll and grab a mid-afternoon boost, get back to the office to enjoy that tasty beverage while being all productivey.

    The soy milk here always gets curdle-y in my cappuccino. Stick with the cow-stuff if you can.

    Bring cash. Otherwise, you're the guy everyone hates who holds up the line and the building is the size of "very small", so.

    Simply the best coffee you can find in SoMa. And probably the best latte of the city.
