    Order a Three Africans au lait, short on the milk. I usually ask for it in a to-go cup (stays hot longer). Leave 2-3 inches of room and top off with steamed straus organic milk. Add sugar. Perfection!

    Not ready for a dinner date yet? Meet for a pressure-free lunch at The Summit. Try the hot pork or the 28 hr short rib sandwich. Hydrate with an Apple Dapple. Tell Desi (the owner) we sent you :)

    Great food. Fantastic coffee and other beverages. New mission tech geek/startup space. Power outlets a bit scarce so be prepared, share bring fully charged devices. Open until 2am!

    my go-to drink at the summit when i'm not drinking blue bottle is the robert palmer: 1/2 victorian lemonade + 1/2 iced lychee black tea... simply irresistible!

    Refreshing to find a coffee shop that has locally sourced healthy food. Love the Hot Pork sandwich with no bread and extra greens. Sausage and Grits rocks too.

    Excellent coffee, food, atmosphere. Only drawback is that the backless chairs make it difficult to sit and work for long periods. But maybe that's the point?

    Hands down, the Mission is the nicest/coolest/funest place in all of SF. The Summit – AKA i/o ventures – is the Mission's best coffee spot. Hands down.

    Full of startup people and open relatively late at night. If you're working on a laptop, bring a power strip as the outlet availability is quite limited.

    They are running a promo for the next two weeks: get a $10 gift card if you sign up two neighbors for Blockboard, a new neighborhood app for the Mission. Invite code for the app is UTZN.

    be aware that their iced coffee comes with spices and milk by default - if you want a classic iced coffee, order an iced americano instead.

    For a refreshing coffee drink that's a break from the norm, try Summit's Cold Infusuion coffee. It's akin to a chai with coffee instead of tea

    My fav is the Iced Lemon Ginger Tea. Also, @photojojo is right next door and @superamit is - well- super.

    Cash-only, so know your level beforehand... The register area is very dim at night, making it an extra challenge!

    Yes. This place is great if you are rock star-well funded by an angel investor - startup - revolutionary social next thing - greedy - pretentious- douche - hipster with ironic detachment from reality
