    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
