    I love that they have a full service coffee bar, which means they add the cream and sugar for you in your black coffee. That's food for someone like me who only knows how to drink fraps (guilty!)

    If drip is your thing, your best cup of coffee is at Philz. Local favorite blends include nutty Jacob's Wonderbar, rich Mocha Tesora, and the ultra-strong Code 33, crafted for the SFPD. Read more

    Fave coffee spot in SF, with 4 locations all over the city now, maybe more? Try the New Manhattan with a sweet pastry. I'm not so into sweet, but Iced Mint Mojito and Iced Ginger Snap are great too!

    The vegan donuts will make you consider swearing off animal products forever and the Philharmonic, with a touch of cardamom and mint, truly is a symphony of flavors in your mouth Read more

    The Ecstatic Iced Coffee (with cream) and the Herbal Mint Tea are my go-to drinks. The Mint Mojito Iced Coffee is amazing too if you want something with a chocolate-mint flavor.

    Philz is now the epicenter of my coffee experience. While I typically prefer espresso at chic cafés, it completely transcends that stratum. Love the Ambrosia of God, but all choices are encouraged.

    They brew each cup separately. Philtered Soul is an excellent coffee blend! Great place to hang out!

    The mint mojito iced coffee will obliterate any preconceived notions of how good you think coffee can be. Actually, everything here will. No other coffee even approaches Philz' level.

    Who can deny the refreshing minty indulgence of an iced mint mojito? Philz ever-expanding stable of locations can satisfy your sweet coffee beverage craving better than a frappuccino ever could.

    Stellar coffee, fast wifi, nice vibe. Great place to write that blog post, dig into a new book, or just to people watch. The OG Phil hangs here on the daily.

    Any Philz is fine, but this is the original. Phil has been doing pourovers for 30 years. Also the coffee of Facebook's HQ. Zuck knows a thing or two about you and good coffee.

    Go wild and get #1 or #2, with sugar. Best Turkish Coffee I've had this side of Israel.Also a good place to work if you're not claustrophobic. They play lots of Bowie :)

    If you need a delicious cup that's going to elevate you to the point of jitters, this is the place. I can't do it all the time, but on the days I can it's sooooo right.

    The Jamaican Blue Mountain is worth the price if you're looking for something slightly more tart and different!

    Don't try to be healthy and get low fat milk...it's all about indulging in the creamy goodness when you come here - give in! Your taste buds will rejoice.

    Arguably, the most authentic location but all have that sweet BUZZ!! Try the mint tea too.

    Follow the line-up instructions here: stay to the left of the pole, wrap around and wait to be called. Move to the cashier, pay, and then wait.

    After my barista and I had a 15 minute consultation about what hopes and dreams I had for my chai latte, she made it and it was delicious.

    The OG Philz is my favorite. Love the miss matched furniture and counter culture vibe. Get a Turkish!

    This coffee is life changing. They brew each cup individually while you wait, and it is out of control good. It's also quite strong, so if you aren't into that - this probably isn't the spot for you. Read more

    Go off menu. My go-to is "Greater God, Low-Fat Alternative, Medium Sweet". Aka: Greater Alarm + Ambrosia, mix of cream and low fat milk.

    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.

    Four little words: mint mojito iced coffee. If you're in the mood for something warm, go for the silken splendor.

    Very limited caffeine free tea options. But an awesome cafe otherwise. Bring your own tea and ask for a cup of hot water for $0.25.

    Iced Coffee with honey and cream tastes like an ice cream float. It's one of the best things I've ever tasted. Thank you Philz Coffee!!

    Original location of the best coffee producer in San Francisco (only Roger's comes close). Get the Philharmonic and throw some mint up in that shit.

    Try the Tantalising Turkish - a great blend with a hint of nutmeg in there. Hits the spot with sugar and cream. Also the small is quite large.

    Their beans are also awesome in a French Press. Don't get it ground, buy a grinder and make awesome coffee at home.

    Maybe I have been spoiled by all of the fantastic cold brew I've been drinking all summer, but the plain iced coffee here was just a blah cup of coffee.

    Banana chocolate walnut cookie is utterly amazing. It's like eating banana bread in cookie form.
