Great coffee. They do drip coffee here and it is excellent; takes a little longer but it is worth it. The location is also great as it is in the building that houses the Heath Ceramics Company so you can drink your coffee and browse...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

It's worth the trip but don't expect to do back flips over this. Coffee is really good but not miles ahead of many other places you can have joe. Pastry is fine but once again ok. Worth a visit.

Calling all aussies. The coffee at blue bottle is as good as in Melbourne but if you want a "normal" latte ask for a gibraltar as their "lattes" are very big, very weak and at least double the milk A++++ You always see other Aussies...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
of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a
community park at its center and dozens of trendy
