People talk about:

  • "Nice soy lattes. Not as sweet as blue bottle, with a nutty..." (4 tips)
  • "... coffee, but the baristas are way-too-cool. Ignored usually, then..." (10 tips)
  • "Try the sweet tooth espresso. Yum. Yum. Yum." (2 tips)
  • Doc P.

    This place is all about the uber-baristas, so stick with lattes & cappuccinos. Skip the ice coffee (which is often bitter and full of grinds) and the house coffee.

    Great coffee and embodies every San Francisco/dot com stereotype. Apple fan boys galore!

    grab a large latte!

    Go to fourbarrel instead, the baristas are far nicer.

    Ritual's own coffee shop in Mission. They also have space to work so it's a good place to start a workday

    By far, my favorite coffee shop EVAR!

    Try the sweet tooth espresso. Yum. Yum. Yum.

    I guess douchebags congregate here, for I was awarded such a badge just for visiting. The espresso was tasty...

    Show up 30+ min before they close. They'll rush you more than usual.

    Super Snobby and Über Pretentiousness, with a mix of high-end beans and awesome drinks. However, I'd rather hit up Haus where I'll get half the Hipster Snobbery and comfier couches. Read more

    The soy lattes here are dreamy-creamy.

    Emily B. · August 30, 2009

    Great placo to get work done. Reminds me of Think Coffee – loud music, crowded, and nasty bathrooms.

    Hipsters rejoice and no make-up needed here. Breves pack a punch. Not outlets, however, so be prepared. Cheapskates.

    Their new pour-over, made-to-order drip coffee is a big improvement on the old French press style. Worth a try.

    Soy Chai is solid!

    Shobeir S. · November 8, 2009
  • Kyle M.

    The ones who started it all still have a place at the table. Don't be put off by cries of "Too many hipsters!" and "Too many scenesters!" I am neither and find it awesome.

    Perfect coffee shop to work on a Sunday afternoon.

    Great place for a pre-bike to work meetup at 6:30am

    Only outlets are at the left middle back near long table. Best seat in the house!

    Mecca of the mission.

    Always get an extra shot...they skimp on the espresso.

    Lena C. · September 24, 2009
  • Joshua P.

    Go for the macchiatto. Read the foam like tea leaves. (The americano is also suprisingly good if you need something that lasts longer.)

    Joshua P. · July 11, 2009
  • Rodrigo D.

    Been here twice, both times the macchiato was very bitter. I can't tell if they don't know how to make one or they don't care. Four Barrel is way ahead on taste, either at 16th or Grand on 23rd.

    Rodrigo D. · August 6, 2013
  • Patrick C.

    Best before 9am or after 8pm. (It opens at 6am and is open 'till 10pm.) Free wifi; some power.

    Patrick C. · January 3, 2013
  • Bonobos

    Can't go wrong with any of the drinks, but we recommend the cappuccino or latte.

    Spring for the single-origin latte. It's the nectar of the gods.

    Coffee pretension at its finest.

    Josh C. · October 3, 2011

    Fav coffee shop when I'm in SF. Gets a little crazy at times, but it's worth the wait. Free wifi, also, iirc.

    Cafe Au Lait with Monte Copen is excellence!

    Stay off the couch in the middle -- that's my seat. Thanks.

    Nice soy lattes. Not as sweet as blue bottle, with a nutty flavor. Go for it!

    If you're here in October '13, check out the illustrations on the wall by Briana Kranz while you wait for your coffee. She's amazing.

    Good chill work music @ritualcoffee.The vibe here is very "get stuff done, but no need to stress." Love it. Highly recommend.

    This is one of the Apple tribe's stomping grounds. Anthropologists will enjoy the opportunity to observe an especially dedicated string of Steve Jobs followers. Coffee is ok btw. Prices ok. No outlets

    Get the El Angel. It's amazing over ice. Caramel and vanilla explosion.

    Toiseksi paras kahvila ja hyvä työtila (ilmainen wifi)
