    Love the ambiance and energy of this space. Coffee tastes great too for a pretty penny.

    Sit upstairs and watch the baristas work their magic. There are also weekly Friday cuppings in the afternoon in the lab on the loft.

  • Bommy C.

    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.

    One of the best coffee joints around. Creep on the line and those who come and go while you enjoy your morning coffee.

    The espresso is just a tad bitter, but always prepared with love.

    Just about my favorite spot for coffee in SF SOMA. Best iced almond milk latte. Wonderful reading spot overlooking the coffee bar. Excellent creamy roast makes delectable soy/almond milk cappuccino

    Vanilla. Iced. Cold. Brew. Get it.

    Excellent coffee in a cavernous wooden space in SoMa. Bring some whole beans home too!

    Surprising place you don't expect here. As coffee leer you can't miss that one!

    The Ethiopia blend is delicious, but I am a sucker for Ethiopian beans.

    The coffee

    Everything you would like to find in a coffee shop of high quality. The only thing that prevents me from going is the lack of an air conditioning system. It is unbearable on sunny days.

  • Adrian P.

    Really big fan of the espresso here. Grab a quick cup for $3.25 if you're in a hurry. If you have a walk ahead of you be wary that the cups can get pretty hot.

    Interested in 'The Landmark Forum' but not the high cost? This book delivers the MESSAGE, but not the theatrical experience, at a fraction of the cost."EST:Playing The Game" on Amazon or Smashwords.

    Carl Frederick · November 5, 2015
  • Odile R.

    Excellent coffee ! Roasted at Sightglass Coffee. Try the chocolate scone and the organic Apple juice (yummy !). No wifi but cool place to work with your laptop upstairs. Or to meet people

    Odile Roujol · November 3, 2015
  • Dave C.

    Incredible. Buy yourself a pound of beans while you're here.

    Dave Cummings · October 31, 2015
  • Danielle H.

    This place is huge and slightly intimidating. I got the vanilla iced coffee and substituted whole milk for almond milk. I would recommend!

    A latte this intensely flavorful should come with a warning label.
