I considerer myself as an advance coffee taster, drinking 4 cups a day gave me that degree. But I knew nothing. I was on a business trip in San Francisco, and I was supposed to take the train south bound to Mountain View, by I missed the train and the next one wasn't due to an hour later. So I... More

It's new trendy place. You must be aware that it's not a regular coffee shop. It's filtered coffee. There are thousands of different types of coffee, so if you want a latte or a cappuccino this is not your place. The service is very slow. The pastries are ok. Free wifi

There are dark, nediem, and light roasts, and all are made to your taste. You want light cream, no cream, or suger, you get it. Within each roast there are at least 4 to 6 choices. The favorite: DARK ROAST ETHER, with smoky dry charcoal flavors.

Trendy coffee shop that local hyper-casually dressed tech worker yuppies are obsessed with. I'm not patient enough for this place Stand around for 10 minutes before you order, then wait 5 more minutes for an overpriced cup of coffee. That said, some people love it, so worth trying out in case you might like it

Nothing I've ever experienced in coffee! Philz is hands down the BEST coffee I've ever enjoyed. Next to Peets, this is by far the BEST. Great blends and amazing coffee beverages. More unique and different than your regular coffee brew house. A must try: Mint Mojito and the Ginger Snap iced coffees! Your taste buds will never be the same.

I had heard that Philz Coffee was one of the better coffee places to try out when visiting San Francisco, California. So, I actually didn't have to go far to get a cup because on a morning walk through the Marina district I ran into their Coffee Truck (Philz is on wheels)! I also stopped by their location on Berry... More

I don't get to Philz often and had to stop when we saw it close to AT&T. The service is fantastic. One barrista takes the order and personalizes the product. I highly recommend the Mojito. I asked for it with no sweetener and it totally worked. Will definitely return!

My first time here, and haven't been never in a coffee store like this!! Best quality coffee, prepared one by one, drop by drop. Spice, flavored, blended, dark, many different options, and also nice sweet things to eat with.

Like the title said I tries the Mocha Tesora at the behest of someone else and I have to agree it's fantastic. I'd recommend the low sweetness level as even at low its got a bit of a sweet taste. Would visit again.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
