    The ginger scone was amazing. Espresso was strong. Great people watching from the 2nd floor.

    They make a fantastic cappuccino. Beware though, no wifi. So this place is for coffee enjoyment, not work.

    I was very disappointed. I've had the coffee before. But today, my Americano was short, muddy and note-less. And the staff, disturbingly aloof, and charged me for my replacement drip-coffee! 😳

    The Hooker's Mocha is amazing, but it's not sweet--it's dark, strong, and bitter.

    Sightglass redefines post industrial minimalism with its exposed pipes and alluring hardwood floors. Hipster baristas and tech patrons. No wifi so bring a book.

    This is how a coffee shop should look/feel. Hipster, yes, but it doesn't try too hard.

    1 espresso = 2 shots. Order a 2x2 for 4 shots of madness.

    Grab your (excellent) coffee and trot upstairs to the balcony seating for some of the best people watching in the city. Hipster bingo!

    Pour over, black. Truly some tasty coffee, and because it's light roasted and more naturally sweet you really don't need sugar and certainly no creamer to cover up ugly roasted flavors.

    Grab a single origin iced coffee. They make it Japanese style: poured over into a carafe and shaken with ice. Tastes much brighter than cold brew.

    Front and center at Sightglass: a vintage 1961 Probat roaster, lit beatifically from above by the skylights of the three-story warehouse that houses the café and roastery. Read more

    Catch a glimpse of the roasting process while your barista meticulously prepares your order and then settle in for some co-working or in a corner spot to sit and enjoy their handy work.

    A SoMa neighborhood gem. A Kiawamururu, Kenya Pour Over worked great for me. Enjoyed the non-uniform seating while watching the roaster in action. Checkout the unique bathroom sink/mirror setup.
