    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.

    Spacious open atmosphere, great for avoiding laptops (no WiFi or power).

    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?

    Nice place, but purposefully lacking in seating, outlets or WiFi, making this a place to be seen, rather than a place to be. Read more

    If Architectural Digest created s coffee spit, it'd look like this. Do I look desperate for Java?

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