    I have to be caffeine free and as a tea drinker, it's rare to find a good decaf tea. But Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf has a wonderfully fragrant and flavorful Rooibos Chai. Tasty even in latte form. 👍

    Perfectly good coffee and iced blendeds. It's certainly not the best coffee in San Francisco and considering the competition in the area I'm not giving it a heart but the Cookies and Cream is good.

    coffee with blueberry muffin is the combo helping you out recreating your thoughts.. have it outside or with the music & WiFi ON inside..

    Iced hazelnut latte is by far their best drink. Try a medium in a large; the additional ice breaks the drink's somewhat overwhelming flavor.

    They have brewed decaf iced coffee. No bathroom, so it's not the perfect coffee shop for a pregnant woman, but I'm still a very happy customer.

    If you want to work, the atmosphere here is better than at the Starbuck's around. Unfortunately, the free Wifi didn't let me connect through VPN (unlike at Starbucks)

    Great place for coffee. About 11 tables and one larger one with good WiFi. *** They have an opening for a barista now!

    Terrific Madeleine's. If you ask for whole milk or a latte it may confuse the cashier because they have their own weird anti-Starbucks lingo that still manages to avoid true Euro names. LA based.

    You should try birthday cake ice blended coffee with sprinkles and whipped cream! Super coffeelicious

    Always hard to find a seat, but the staff and baristas are friendly and the cappuccino is always great!

    Best double espresso macchiato - order extra wet. Voila you have a stowaway latte on steroids for half the price!

    The "Your Favorite" Tea Latte with Strawberry Cream or Morrocan Mint green tea is so good!

    If you sit outside, you will see the many odd sights of Market St. (This includes but is not limited to people drinking from trash and youth yelling at each other.)

    Love the winter dream tea latte in the winter! Also, no lines when I go at 9:30!

    One of the few places that will make a tea latte with a decaf tea like decaf English Breakfast, for those of us who like milk.

    If you're looking for a Holiday drink, the Winter Dream tea latte is the best! Tastes like Christmas in a cup!

    Get your coffee to go or stay inside. This place attracts cigarette smokers who tend to lurk at outdoor tables.

    Look for the access code on the monitor - squint, because it is tiny. But it will unlock 2 hours of wifi goodness.

    Get a free drink when you buy a $25 gift card. Think of it as a 10-15% bonus.

    Green tea latte is a nice midday pick me up without the harsh effect of late day caffeine.
