    Coffee is a very light blend with strong floral and fruit flavors best for milk based drinks. A cup of black coffee is too acidic for human consumption 🤢

    Management changed, new owners and management are focused 100% on profit (even at the expense of quality). Unfortunately, Stanza is far from it used to be. Go to Four Barrel, Verve or ritual instead.

    Cozy coffee place with good coffee. Their pastries may be a bit dry but I like the coffee. Not many tables, often busy. Perfect for a shot of espresso on the way to work

    Plenty of seating and passable coffee, although there are better options in the area. Espresso was a bit sour

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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 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?
