    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

    Iced almond chai !! So nom.

  • 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.

    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

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

    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.

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

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

    Come for the cozy booths up front.

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

    Charlotte Blommestijn · September 2, 2014

    Nice enclosed patio in front. Perfect for people watching.

    Mark Dreger · August 14, 2014

    They have soy milk.

  • 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

    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

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

    They were just unlocking the gate at 9am on Friday 3/21!

  • 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.

    Mike B. · November 24, 2013

    Pumpkin bacon quiche. NOMS.

  • Michael P.

    This place is like a punchline for how stupid San Francisco has become. $4.00 for literally the smallest coffee I have ever purchased. Complete ripoff. Go to Philz or Rogers. Way better coffee there.

    Michael Portanova · October 11, 2013
  • Veronica P.

    They make a good chia and they back out door seating with heaters. Great for a private small party.

    Veronica P. · September 14, 2013

    Pretty good coffee. Up there with blue bottle and four barrel although 4B is still my fav

    Bernard · August 28, 2013

    Weak service, good enough coffee, beautiful space with wifi and courtyard.

    Joseph Cohen · August 12, 2013
  • Stefanie S.

    Black Jet pastries; a perfect place to work.

    They take credit card with Square. Forgot your credit card? You can also pay for your morning brew with Square Wallet. :)

    The fancy pop tarts are quite amazing.

    Eddie Codel · May 18, 2013
  • Tom P.

    The long table across from the counter is a perfect height to use as a standing desk. If you're into that kind of thing.

    Tom Park · April 28, 2013
  • christinaleighmorgan.

    Less interior pull than the Haight St. location but coffee is just as strong//delicious. $8 cup is worth a try, once.

    christinaleighmorgan. · April 27, 2013

    Quiet patio in the back.
