    No. 1 coffee in San Francisco. Excellent flat white (although they call it latte in a smaller cup). Perfect croissants as well. If you are from Melbourne, you will not be disappointed. Expect to queue

    The second floor is very warm. The AC cannot cope with the hard work of these guys ☺

    When it's hot out, the only option is vanilla iced coffee. They steep it with vanilla bean pods.

    Sightglass is a little bit out of the way from the downtown area, but the space is giant and full of natural light. They also roast their own beans here in this space.

    Espresso here is definitely more citrus in flavor than I have ever had. Space is amazing. Grab a macchiato and go upstairs to take a load off.

    Really, it's a coffee room with little seating. But the coffee is nice and the space is good for an afternoon drop in.

    This place is huge, but seems they still lack seating. Nevertheless, the coffee is superb, the design is organically modern, and the people are uniquely SF hip.

    Try the hooker mocha, its not your typical mocha. Not very sweet but I prefer it that way.

    I don't think I've ever seen so many Macbooks in one place. Neat space. Vanilla cold brew w/ almond milk is delish, but good luck finding a seat on the weekend. Did I mention techies galore?

    Their drip coffee is on the light side, but you can't go wrong with their espresso. And they have a record player.
