They do what they do better than anywhere else, and the Linden Alley kiosk is the best of the Blue Bottles. Accept that the coffee is served warm, not hot. Accept that you will wait. Accept that there is no half-caff soy caramel mochacino. Relax...More

I admit Blue Bottle Coffee is great. However, there is always a significant wait, and there is a just as good place up on Octavia a block away (in one of the containers) Plus, they won't give you a double expresso togo. It MUST be...More

I ordered a regular latte, and added a bit of the natural sugar provided on the side. This coffee was the perfect temperature and tasted amazing. There was a bit of a line, but it was well worth it. Crazy ordering coffee from a coffee...More

Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky
shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to
imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of
a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation
