Every day there's at least four types of beans to try, plus many more to take home. Great food options, super friendly staff and the best community atmosphere I've ever encountered. Zero pretension!
good coffee-lots of tasty blends, very calm atmosphere, cool people.
Really friendly and knowledgeable staff, and great teas and coffees!
Great choices of teas and cookies
Best cup so far in the Castro. No pretense. Dog lovers.
Breakfast bar is delicious if you like dried apricots.
Amazing French press coffee for $5.25 between 11-4pm
Great fresh coffee not like bitter starbucks!
Cute neighborhood coffee shop
If you like chai, get the bi-chai. It' a mix of spicy masala chai with the sweeter chai mix you find most places. Best of both worlds!!
Bring your dog! It's as much of a dog cafe as it is a people cafe.
Excellent soy lattes. Super friendly staff. Too bad the sun never comes any closer to the shop.
Lovely cakes! Try the New York Crumb Cake :)
Great soy latte. Nice outdoor seats on sunny Castro days.
Can't say enough about Spikes and how awesome it is. My for sure "happy place" in San Francisco
Personable, down to earth staff. Amazing pumpkin lattes.
Best coffee at Castro
The nicest staff, best vibe and all around choice for coffee in the Castro.
Best drink ever: dirty chai (that's chai with a shot of espresso). Spikes makes a great one!
Love this place. I am here most mornings.
Try their morning egg sandwich on a bagel.
Try the bi-chai! Half spicy, half sweet.
Great place to wake up
Try one of their egg bagels. I get egg and cheese usually.
My favorite coffee shop in the Castro.
One of the best music based multimedia extravaganzas around!
Great local coffee house!
For me, the best coffee, friendly staff and casual neighborhood atmosphere in the Castro.
Get the apple turnover! It's amazing!!!
Finest coffee and baristas in the 'stro.
Iced latte's are amazing!
Have you tried our soy latte or chai?
Great spicy chai tea. Bagel with pbutter and jelly my favorite at home nice to see on a menu. Sat inside since outside had lots of dog owners. Awesome to enjoy chai watching owners resemble their dogs
Cutest staff and strong coffee. Perfect combo.
Totally awesome people. Everyone on staff is tons of fun and super friendly. :)
Best coffee in the hood. And good bagels too.
