    Their pour over was pretty good but I don't recall being impressed by it. Passable, I guess? Great interior!

    Get coffee for "here" so you can. Get the nice cups.

    Easily the coolest coffee shop I’ve ever been to. A large wraparound bar with plentiful table seating bisected by bar seating in the rear portion which overlooks the roasting area. Delicious coffee.

    Some of the best coffee available in SF. Holds its own with _any_ of the other "third-wave" coffee places. Great location, especially when you're brunching on the weekend.

    The coffee is too expensive--the $5 latte barely edges out ritual--but the quality is there. Hot chocolate blah, go to dandelion to scratch that itch.

    Darker roast. Great cup of coffee, but the atmosphere and vibe are even better. Love it!

    Les muffins à la Carotte et le slow Coffee ! L'accueil y est excellent, comme l'ambiance qui y règne.
