    Great space to grab some solid coffee and get work done or have a sit down with friends. They play trendy music and have a central location to other decent Mission spots if that's what you're into 😎

    Everything is perfect, the design, the coffee, the lovely baristas, & the merchandise selection. Mostly I love the espresso machines, because they pull legit shots of espresso & steam milk perfection

    The original Valencia Street location is classic coffee shop cool, while the reclaimed-wood Napa stand helps fuel up sippers perusing the artisanal purveyors at the famous Oxbow Public Market. Read more

    A quiet cafe with classical music and wi-fi. Half the price of the hipster places nearby and the interior follows suite. However a great place to work and get stuff done. #win

    One of the original speciality "third-wave" coffee roasters and shops in San Francisco, Ritual boasts a nonchalant attitude, delicious coffee / espresso drinks, and a selection of donuts and pastries.

    Coffee professional Erin Meister wrote, “Their focus on the beans rather than the roast or even necessarily the barista were a sort of turning-point for a lot of other coffee companies.” Read more

    Aside from great coffee the redesign of the store is amazing. By far one of the coolest looking shops in SF, along with Four Barrel and Blue Bottle

    Good recommendations if you are lost what to order. Friendly staff. You can have a peaceful cup of coffee while sitting at the table on the sidewalk. And you can buy raw coffee to brew home.

    The Don Guayo beans from Guatemala were prepared as a cold brew on nitro. The cup has slightly more body feel than it does in mouth. Aroma and mouth of lemon leads to a body of potato and walnut.

    Hacienda Carmona beans (Guatemala) were prepared as today's cold brew. The roast just grazes a medium body, yielding more of emphasis on sweet tones of papaya and agave nectar. Cups soft in mouth.

    Gatchatha, a bean from Kenya, is fun to cup with its multiple levels of flavor. The mouth has characteristic punch with caramel and banana tones. The finish is dark with a touch of cinnamon.

    This popular spot has garnered a roasting reputation of its own with a meticulous and fanatical approach to production and brewing that borders on the religious. Try out the seasonal espresso blends. Read more

    Excellent coffee, great meeting spot. Lots of space to chat. Amazingly, the baristas seem to be different every day. Don't forget they have multiple espressos to choose from!

    Although known for their coffee, they also serve a variety of fine teas! Tea menu isn't always on display; you may have to ask to see it. The osmanthus-elderflower is particularly lovely!

    Delicious coffee, chill vibe, sidewalk seating, and the company prints cards teaching you to brew better coffee at home. Nice touch!

    Big open, modern space. My mocha was lukewarm, but delicious. We went for the Ritual branded, mason jar sippy cup with cosy. 💙

    Spot is great for eavesdropping on interesting conversation or meeting people at the large communal table in the back. Coffee is excellent too. Smooth and barely bitter.

    La Folie from Guatemala prepared as a cold brew has a faint dark chocolate bitterness in the light body of the cup. The cup is clean with a honeydew melon mouth.

    Excellent coffee, but the baristas are way-too-cool. Ignored usually, then looked put out when one asks for rec. I buy the coffee from local shops instead of braving the hipstas on Valencia.

    New space is bright and shiny but no wi-fi. So happy that they serve song tea here because all of their teas are top-notch.

    Good quality coffee crafted with care, artistically decorated from professional baristas. This is excellent and consistency is so good.

    Aramo beans from Ethiopia were available as a cold brew on the nitro tap today. The mouth of the cup stands out with a bright, and fruit and herbal filled punch of peach and dill. Mid bod & hi aroma.

    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.

    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

    Try the Cortado - The (lovely) barista called it something different, but made it for me when I told her I prefer cortados. Awesome.

    It's annoyingly hip here but the coffee is sooo very good! Smooth, nice, wonderful cup of coffee that's worth feeling cliche San Francisco for.

    If you want 8oz latte you need to specify - even of it says it'll be 8oz. Nice coffee though, best I've head in SF yet.

    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.

    The new fitout is great. Get yourself a Macchiato or select from one of their V60 pourovers.

    Worse espressi (I tried two, just to give the place another chance) I have ever tried in my life! Sure they get the hearts etc perfectly down in the latte's foam but common... Also: no wifi!

    the most hipster place I've ever been -- also the only coffee I've ever had that was good enough to drink black. they have a menu with tasting notes. no outlets though

    "Topped with seamless rosettas and hearts, Ritual’s velvety lattes combine seasonally rotating espressos with milk from local Clover Farms."
