    This place is awesome. The coffee is refreshingly fair priced. I got my usual (Almond Milk Latte) and was not disappointed.

    i got served lukewarm coffee and the staff seemed unfriendly but i can't quite remember why

    Tasty iced tea alongside a deliciously chewy, yet soft chocolate chip cookie with sea salt. They have wi-fi if you feel like hanging out.

    Cute cafe with great espresso drinks. My mocha was delicious and not too sweet.

    Nicole P · October 16, 2015
  • Sharon T.

    the sandwiches were a little bland...

    Sharon Tsao · October 8, 2015
  • Danielle E.

    Get the egg and avocado sandwich in sourdough instead of brioche

    Danielle Elliot · October 2, 2015
  • Benjamin T.

    A lovely little spot with a tasty almond milk latte!

    Cappuccino is one of the best I've had in the city. They use sightglass coffee. Cool merchandise too

    Rob Atkinson · August 9, 2015

    Neighborhood gem for a good coffee and some bakery items to go along. They serve Sightglass coffee, one of my favorite coffee in SF

    The first breakfast in San Francisco. Nice friendly staff, great coffee and enormous bowl of yogurt and musli.

    Great place to go for tasty, inexpensive coffee/beer. Beers on tap or $2 bottle PBR.

    It gets a little stuffy with all the California sunshine pouring in - sit at the shared table in the back, ask to open the window in the back corner, and enjoy the breeze!

    Head to Matching Half Cafe today for coffee and some stellar Black Jet Baking Co sweets. The chocolate chip cookies are oh so good. Read more

    It's a lovely cafe, with good coffee and baked goods. Word of warning if you're looking for a place to work from: they only have two working power near the door, so maybe not so ideal.

    Nando Rossi · November 14, 2014
  • Peter v.

    Breakfast brioche is glorious. They do run out of those wonderful soft buns mid day usually.

    Peter van Hardenberg · September 23, 2014

    "We can't make an iced latte because Sightglass trains us not to. It would ruin the *integrity* of the bean." ~ This is just a coffee shop in NOPA, get over yourselves.

    Mark Dreger · September 23, 2014
  • Scott O.

    Cool vibe. I dig the homemade pop tarts

    Scott Owades · September 18, 2014
  • Erica K.

    Sight glass coffee, good vibe, outside seating is puppy-friendly.

    Erica Kaye · September 14, 2014
  • Carissa B.

    Their almond milk latte is one of the best in the city. Also recommend the regular cappuccino

    Carissa Bilinski · September 11, 2014
  • Lisandra M.

    The place is nice: good food, good service, cozy, but there is no outlet to keep your computer or phone charged... :(

    Lisandra Maioli · August 16, 2014

    Great coffee, so so breakfast sandwiches.

    Turkey sandwich is really tasty!

  • Eri V.

    They do not have ice so forget about ordering that iced latte...

    Great light, sturdy tables, supportive chairs, fine wifi. One functioning outlet under the condiments counter.

  • Xiao Y.

    Awesome place. Great place to disconnect. Everyone tries to use their computer but there's no cell reception or wifi.

    WiFi is terrible. Come here if you don't want to work or tinder.

    Pam D · December 13, 2013
  • Scott K.

    Great kale salad.

    Scott Kennedy · November 11, 2013
  • Sam L.

    Get the Blueboon. It is hands down the best!

    Sam Livermore · November 7, 2013
  • Ash H.

    Delicious drip! Even the decaf has complexity.

    Ash Huang · October 30, 2013
  • Maykel L.

    Great spot for dog watching.

    Spice coffee cake is delish

    Camilla C · August 21, 2013
  • Bkwm J.

    I think I'm addicted to their morning bun (putting 2 of my favorite things together: croissant & orange marmalade!) 😍😋

    Bkwm J · August 20, 2013

    Wifi password is cufflinks

    Tim Devane · August 13, 2013
  • Tim D.

    Homemade pop tarts are outstanding. Get the jalapeño

    Tim Devane · August 13, 2013
  • Bkwm J.

    Chocolate croissant: pretty good but overpriced ($2.75)!!! 😒😤

    Bkwm J · August 13, 2013
  • Trevin C.

    Consider skipping any food order if you're in a rush. During busy times it can take up to 30 mins for something as simple as a bagel with cream cheese.

    Trevin Chow · August 12, 2013
  • Diana T.

    One of the best cups of Ethiopian (by Sightglass) coffee around. Both the straight Ethiopian and the Blue Boon blend are choice.

    Diana T. · July 16, 2013
  • Emily M.

    My favorite place to get some work done. Quietest on weekday afternoons. Crazy busy on weekend mornings.

    Emily M. · June 3, 2013
  • Tobias K.

    They take Square, so pay with your name.

    Tobias Kemper · April 28, 2013
  • Kayvon T.

    A latte and their kale salad are the perfect ingredients for a Sunday morning in San Francisco.
