    The coffee is great as was expected, but the two story interior and buzzing atmosphere was a big plus

    simply one of the most beautiful coffee-serving spaces that i have seen

    Beautiful space with extremely high ceilings, but higher than average prices. This location does not offer any wifi nor outlets. Not a good place to do any work on your laptop.

    Coffee was alright. That pistachio/blackberry jam croissant though...so unique and satisfying!! Worth going here just for the pastry.

    Sightglass strictly serves (awesome) coffee, no tea (just in case you were looking for something other than coffee).
  • Josh M.
    Beautiful space (ask about the original metal shop) and excellent coffee.
  • Kaitlin M.
    Ambiance was so modern, industrial, and had a warehouse feel. Great sunlight and quality coffee - sit on the balcony overlooking the daily grind

    The coffee here is super good. The affogato bar upstairs is also really cool and there are quite a few tables for getting work done.

    Best coffee shop and in house roasters! Plenty of space inside. A must, go up stairs to the affogato bar!

    Pourovers and espresso drinks here are top notch. Lines move relatively quickly. Best thing about this location might be the spacious working area above the coffee bar. Great, comfortable atmosphere.

    As an Australian looking for good coffee in the US Sightglass allayed all fears. The quality is excellent and they would be among the best in Australia if back home and they make flat whites

    Their vanilla cold brew is tasty, but any of their brewed coffee options can be made iced too. It's a great afternoon treat. Drink it straight up, no need for milk or sugar.

    I was a little turned off by only having sweetened cold brew, but, the pour over over ice is a decent substitute. And the space and staff make up for it by far

    Good place to work, drink coffee, and hang out, especially on weekends. Gets very crowded during the week. Important to note that there is NO WIFI, so if work you want to do requires it try elsewhere.

    Great drinks, great space. But it can be sweltering in the summer — there's no AC, and having a giant on-site roaster means there's a literal furnace in here.

    Walk upstairs at the SoMa HQ and check out the Sightglass x Salt and Straw affogato bar, a collab with the Portland ice cream shop. We’ll never say no to floating ice cream in boozy coffee. Read more

    These guys know what they're doing. The care in which they roast and prepare the coffee is noticeable upon first sip. I have had a regular drip coffee and a latte and they both blew my mind. 👌

    Beautiful space with lots of seating/standing room. Pastries are from local bakeries like b. patisserie and piccino cafe. Piccino's ginger scone is small and expensive at $3.50 but yum.
