    The coffee is mediocre (go to Ritual or Blue Bottle up the block) but the food is good and the parklet outside is excellent. Favorite parklet in SF.

    The coffee is ok, the staff can be hit or miss. They don't offer refills on coffee. The best place to sit and work is upstairs.

    Beautiful new parklets installed recently. It's a great place to spend a morning drinking coffee and watching the terrible traffic patterns at Page & Octavia.

    Mercury cafe I loved you so.. But lately the cafe is just coming across as real unclean. Can you please fix the fly situation? Would really like to come back :(

    Relaxed spot in Hayes Valley to have an iced coffee and a pastry. Egg dishes are good too. Nice owner, good music, free wifi, new parklet, power outlets, and regular morning crowd. Tip well please.

    Wonderful cafe. Decent coffee at a good price, good sandwiches, and lots of natural light for a pleasant work or hangout session.

    Stop what you're doing and order the Pie. Whatever flavor (Apple most likely), it's easily some of THE BEST in town, and I don't say that lightly.

    Kyle Minor · April 15, 2012
  • Omar K.

    Really really good espresso

    Omar K · January 15, 2012

    That open space upstairs has a table you can sit at. Nice if you want a little privacy.
