    Hipsters who just learned how to do pourover from a YouTube video. But there are plugs at every booth and the coffee's pretty good.

    The outdoor space out back is pleasant and has couches and headlamps. A rare find and not obvious.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Great service! If you sit by the bar, they will keep a timer on how long your tea should be steeped... Very kind! Also, they use a different type of tea.coffee brand than Stanza on Haight.

    The latte is great, but the place lacks ambience. It looks like they're still using the furniture from the old hookah place?

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
