SF Weekly's Best of Winner 2010 - Reader's Poll - BEST COFFEE
I have many favorite coffees hear but I really love the tesora, philarmonic and the silk and splendor. I always make sure to stock up on the beans whenever I'm in the neighborhood.
After sampling the menu the Tesora is hands down the best cup of coffee they make!!! You will not be disappointed!
There are few things better than an iced mint mojito on a sunny Berkeley afternoon :-)
Up the short stairs and in the back there's a really great area to sit and do some work. Gets a little crowded but it's usually not too bad. Free WiFi that works great, lots of outlets.
Tesora is great❤
Sometimes when it seems like you've successfully secured the lid on your cup of coffee, you haven't.
The anti-Starbucks. Each cup made by hand. Our faves: Tesora, Mocha Tesora, Philharmonic and on a hot day, mojito mint iced coffee.
Try the Turkish, the hint of cardamom is delicious!
Love this spot. Sunny outdoor seating and one of the best WiFi I experienced in a long time.
Get your coffee philz way with brown sugar. You won't be disappointed
Love the coffee. Hate going to SF or Berkeley for it. I think Oakland could use some Phil's love... Js'n.
First time with the gingersnap iced coffee. Sugary gingery creamy goodness.
Jacobs wonderbar. Cleanest dark roast I've ever had.
If you bring your own mug, you get charged at the small size price...no matter how big the mug is!
Best coffee hands down. My favorite is a mix between the Tesora and the Philtered Soul. A must try!!
Special on Tesora coffee - $10/lb so trying it out
Mocha Tesora, not too sweet is amazing.
The chai is very relaxing.
Comfy couches, tables to chill at, and tasty coffee. Julie's ultimate for me!
If you like coffee, you'll love Philz. Best cup of coffee you can find anywhere
I love the mint mojito iced coffee!!
Try a new manhattan for a light yet strong morning brew.
The mint mojitos and the gingersnap iced coffees are delicious!
Tesora and Philteres Soul "Philz Way" are epic and if you want a cool drink the Mint Mojito and Gingersnap ice coffee are the nest things ever
Get the "Greater Soul" you will thank me later
Haven't gotten anything but the mint Mojito iced coffee & I doubt I will either. One cup gets me wired!
there is no line. very confusing.
Turkish blend ftw!
Ugh, music blaring in the back room is like annoying wallpaper. Do we need the soundtrack? Really? Will avoid in future, yay!
LOVE THEIR COFFEEEEE!!! Mocha Tesora with soy is so goooooood :D
Best coffee. Ever. I love Silken Splendor and Itz the Best.
Completely addicted to Ether! Love the coffee here. Friendly atmosphere and nice barristas making my coffee.
Philz "mojito" mint iced coffee is killer, but really you should get a lightly sweetened medium roast Tesora with a mint leaf and splash of cream.
First of all, the staff is very welcoming and will answer any question. I've had the 7 star specialty brew with medium sugar and cream and it's simply perfect.
Jacob's Wonderbar with medium sugar and cream is the way to go.
i can't believe this all came from a convenience store in the mission. this is the best coffee shop in the bay, coffee and atmosphere are both stellar! and free wifi!
Outrageously friendly. Live jazz on sunday afternoon; students look up from books and laptops to applaud. Earl grey served with mint leaves.
Try the Turkish!
Cash only for today 5/24...still working the kinks out. Friendly place!
The Old School cookies are probably the best chocolate chip cookies you will ever have.
Highly recommend half Silken Splendor, half House Decaf. Smooth and rich and not acidic. Great both hot and cool, haven't tried it iced yet.
Iced mint mojito!
No. This is not a coffee.
Love the coffee, but with the line out-the-door on a Sunday and knowing how the staff loves to jibber jabber, I had to get my caffeine fix next door at Guerrilla Cafe.
Each cup is made to order!
Love the aromatic Arabic
You've never had coffee untill you've had Philz!
