    I have high standards in coffee as I'm from Australia and the coffee there is SO different compared to Philz. So saying Philz is good is amazing for SF. Great menu and friendly professional staff.

    Always expect a line. This place is super busy, for good reason. Some of the best coffee around. Get the Mint Mojito Iced Coffee, sweet and creamy - you won't be disappointed.

    I totally loved their coffee and service. They serve high quality hand crafted coffee. I loved their minto mojitos iced coffee. But i personally prefer the taste of blue bottle coffee over Philz.

    No frills here. Good coffee. Cream. Sugar. That's it, & that's all you need to have the best day ever. Philtered Soul with medium cream & sugar is my go-to. Also try an apricot bar warmed up...heaven.

    Coffee with a twist.Liked the Ecstatic iced coffee and the hot Gingersnap 👍🏻. Very busy spot, but worth it.

    Their coffee is excellent, but if you go there every day, be prepared for a wildly inconsistent coffee experience. Using Order Ahead is convenient, but they goof up on orders consistently.

    Three tips: 1. Orderahead to avoid the wait 2. Get the cookie heated. Ask for extra napkins, it's messy but so good. 3. When crossing the street, have one hand free to avoid a Marilyn Monroe moment.

    Coffee at its best. Unique blends, knowledgeable & friendly baristas, intriguing combos of coffee with spice, herbs or fruit. Jacobs Wonderbar & Iced Mint Mojito Coffee (mint+coffee!) - both winners.

    Omg!! This is the best coffee ever! Well worth the trip here, I know it sounds crazy but it is like butter. It leaves a little buttery finish in the back of your palate. Amazing coffee!

    Don't get this whole "phenomenon": coffee is at best average (except the Ice Mojito, which I do agree is great), service is mostly unstreamlined and "posy". Saving grace: pastries and food are good

    What's not to love?!? And if you ask nicely, they'll make modifications for you. Got the gingersnap coffee (hot) made with tesora. Yum!

    Best. Coffee. Try the tesora, you won't regret it. Butter in your coffee just makes it heavenly. Always long lines and coffee is made individually so takes a little time.

    If you are an east bay coffee lover make sure you visit this jewel of a coffee shop. Like it hot, get Philtered Soul, want something cold get the Gingersnap iced coffee

    Mint mojito iced coffee is a perfect example of a coffee treat done right. Single brew shop w/many choices in roasts you can customize. Long lines but great service. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more
