    Best coffee in Bay Area. No jokes. You won't ever want to go to Starbucks or Peet's (sic!) after Philz. Wide variety of light and medium roasts. For those who prefer burnt beans there are choices also

    I'm a fan of the Dancing Water, but I can't imagine that if you pick a range of roast that suits your palate you will be disappointed. I'm in town about 6 times a year & make sure it's near a Philz.

    Start with a Tesora then work your way darker/lighter to find your favorite. Single cup brewing takes time. Be patient! It's worth the extra time. The cookies are awesome: try the candied popcorn one.

    1) park at the liquor store lot 2) buy a bag of coffee and get a free small coffee (might for a limited time only). 3) bring your own cup and you only pay small coffee prices!

    Get a cup of 1/2 ether and 1/2 philtered soul. The super smokiness of the ether with the hint of hazelnut in the p.s. is amazing. They'll totally make it for you. Just ask!
