    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

    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!)

    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!

    Try all the coffees. Food items are surprisingly great, especially the jam toast, breakfast burritos, and donuts. & If you buy a gift card for yourself, everything you buy is 10-15% off!

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 :)

    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
