    The iced coffee here is amazeballs, but I think you'll be happy with anything given the special made cup every time. For out of town newbies: order line on the right, pay line on the left.

    I feel like I've each drink on the menu almost.. Tesora, Mocha, philharmonic, greater alarm... And each coffee has pleased me equally. The tea I'm not as much of a fan of. A great coffee spot!

    The Sooo Good is true to its name and will wake you right up -- fresh mint on top is guaranteed to brighten any morning 🌞

    They now offer almond milk in addition to soy milk for dairy fee folks. Bring your own mug (I just use a mason jar) and get a large for the price of a small!

    Don't remember her name, but one of the baristas here makes THE BEST ICED MOCHA TESORA EVER. She's awesome (as is a Philz mocha)

    everyone here is lovely and nice but order the wrong coffee and you'll be wishing the system weren't so complicated. if you aren't the primest of all the coffee snobs in the land, go across the street

    Their chai with mint is delicious! Get a drink and walk over to Dolores Park to enjoy (both the drink and the view).

    Seriously amazing coffee with tons of options to choose from. On a sunny day, try the Mint Mojito Iced Coffee. So good.

    Phil Jaber and his son Jacob spent several months developing each blend. Phil's Tesora or "Treasure" blend took 7 years to find the perfect combination of beans.

    Everything is good! Dancing Water is a good starter but my favorite is New Manhattan.

    This space is tiny but at least you can grab an espresso on your way down to Dolores Park for the start of a sunny day.

    love the mint mojito, the gingerbread iced coffee and the philtered soul philz way (medium cream medium sweet).

    I'm not an iced coffee kinda guy, but the iced Mint Mojito light light is pretty stellar.

    A bit more expensive for coffee, but certainly special in that every cup is brewed one at a time. Worth a little extra for a get up and go morning.

    Try the large philharmonic with light cream. Better than the Starbucks across the street for sure

    Mocha Tesora is smooth and tasty. If you're a lactard, make sure you ask upfront to sub soy for the cream.

    This is the sort of coffee you savor. Grab your cup of philz and go for a stroll in the Castro!

    It's good, but they pride themselves on having extremely high caffeine content. If you get the jitters, be warned.

    Hard to beat the mint monitor iced coffee. I recommend getting it medium sweet and creamy (or even less).

    Get one of my special recipes: "the CT Scan", "Arabian wonderbar", or "new jack city". You won't regret it!

    You can get any coffee iced (it just takes longer), and you can blend beans.

    For a real treat order off menu and request the Jamaica Blue, it's a bit spendy at $10 however worth it when you want to splurge
