    Great pour over coffee! Internet is pretty slow though.

    "The Special" is a Gibraltar made with the non-milk espresso, a small amount of chocolate and steamed half-and-half; It's rich and flavorful—not on the menu, but can be made-to-order if you ask nicely

    The coffee is amazing! The staff is the typical unapproachable coffee snob, but they know what they're talking about when they do talk

  • Kunal P.

    I come here more for the seating than I do for the coffee or pastries.

  • Nana A.

    Really quiet place, great for working!

  • Chloe C.

    Cool back patio seating area.

    Recent renovation makes the cafe more spacious and welcoming to visitors; Also makes socializing privately easier. Worth checking out!

    If you feel like Thai Tea but want something hot, ask nicely for the steamed thai tea (not on the menu). Rich, creamy and delicious, and a unique take on a classic!

    For wifi, the password is electric sheep; If the internet is slow (or broken), use the Pork Store's wifi (password: ilovebacon)—If you're going to use the wifi, buy something and tip for good service.

    Lots of room to work. Grab a chai and get comfortable.

    It'd be one thing if the baristas were singing and it sounded good. But yodelling baristas made me want to die.

    Emily Moxley · September 27, 2015

    They have outdoor seating in the back.

    kev/null · August 13, 2015

    They use different roasters, both local ones and ones that are just good regardless of how far they're shipped. There's an outdoor space that's quiet. Use the wifi from the place next door.

    nice place to work, though coffee and slightly overpriced pastries are sub-par

    Euni K · June 16, 2015

    Great pourovers! There's usually a few seats open. Great for working.

    I live the open backyard space <3 cool place to chill, drink your coffee and get some work done

    Iced almond chai !! So nom.

    Danielle Davis · May 6, 2015
  • Dogs Gone Happy

    Outdoor seating and wifi. Not to mention the coffee, which is also pretty good. I only had a batch brew, but it was worth the money.

    Iced Coffee is fantastic.

    Ben Russo · March 28, 2015

    Great coffee carefully prepared and served. Nice place to sit and get some work done. Awesome patio in the back!

    If you can deal with the sexually graphic paintings and drawings on the walls, its a sweet little place for Thai Tea

    William Diaz · December 14, 2014
  • Daniel A.

    When the line at Four Barrel is rediculous this place does perfectly great coffee

    Plugs at every booth. Wi-Fi password: ilovebacon Read more

  • Nitasha T.

    This place is lovely. Good (if pretentious!) coffee, they're playing Modern Lovers, the quiche was not too heavy, and there are plugs and wifi. I live here now.

    Dirtiest Coffeeshop in the Mission. Always.

    Schlomo Rabinowitz · October 14, 2014
  • Jared R.

    There are couches on the back patio. Also plenty of space work.

    Jared Ranere · October 11, 2014
  • Jenny Q.

    Lovely outdoor area in the back. Come here to get some work done or read a book on a sunny day

    Jenny Q · September 30, 2014
  • Justin S.

    Come for the cozy booths up front.

    Justin Salsburey · September 14, 2014
  • Charlotte B.

    Best coffee on the block, and great place to work. Pastries are good but overpriced

    Charlotte Blommestijn · September 2, 2014
  • Mark D.

    Nice enclosed patio in front. Perfect for people watching.

    Mark Dreger · August 14, 2014
  • Jordan F.

    They have soy milk.

    Jordan Fine · August 9, 2014
  • Kylor H.

    Great espresso.

    Kylor Hall · August 7, 2014
  • Scott H.

    Best third-wave coffee prep in the area. Their cappuccinos are better than Four Barrel and the French press is cheap and usually made on demand.

    Scott Hulbert · August 6, 2014
  • Ian B.

    Get the cappuccino. Do it. You won't regret it. Maybe.

    Ian Ballard · August 4, 2014
  • Elliot L.

    Free coffee & $4 cup of wifi

    Be nice. The staff here is kind. Sit out back if you can.

    This place has come a long way since they first opened. Gone from my-first-pourover to a great cafe with a awesome space

    Jake Kaufman · April 13, 2014
  • Peony L.

    Just discovered their great back patio space. Super cozy and sunny.

    Peony Layne · April 12, 2014
  • Bikash M.

    When ordering the cappuccino, ask for it dry otherwise it shows up as a latte.

    Bikash Mishra · February 25, 2014
  • Andrew v.

    really nice baristas!

    Andrew von Rosenbach · January 31, 2014
  • Luke B.

    The espresso drinks are top-notch, the pastries hit the spot and the staff is nice and accommodating. For eats, I recommend the scones (super moist!), chocolate chip cookies and poppyseed muffins.

    Luke Bornheimer · January 21, 2014
  • Will B.

    Slow as hell. Faster to walk to Four Barrel and wait in line.

    Will Brown · January 4, 2014
  • Jeff T.

    A pour-over coffeehouse where craft & quality are paramount. Techniques from Japan, beans from Kenya & Ethiopia. Served by locals who love their work. Spacious + wifi. Jazz playing. Outdoor tables.

    Jeff Tomczek · December 24, 2013
  • Henry W.

    Great chai if you like it spicy. Don't pass up on the banana bread. The crunchy topping and icing make it phenomenal.

    Henry Williams · December 21, 2013
  • Ayush K.

    They like to play their music really LOUD for some reason. Not a good place to take calls.

    Ayush Khanna · December 7, 2013
  • Hiromi N.

    Very limited selection and on the moderate priced side, but very smooth pour-over. Comfortable booth seating with outlets under seating. Music can get loud.

    Hiromi Neutze · November 26, 2013
  • Mike B.

    Limited tea selection :( not for tea lovers.
