I think this is local nostagia over a local coffee provider. It's good coffee, but am I going to stand in a giant line for it? No. I went with my aunt who is from Australia and she didn't understand what some of the names for the coffee options like a 'cortado' for example and the young lady there was... More

Wonderful understanding of coffee roasting and brewing. Everything from drip, to au lait, to cold brew were delicious.

picked up Six 1/2 pound bags of Hayes Valley Espresso and have been brewing it at home. Just OK at best which is very surprising as I love dark roast and I do have a decent Espresso machine. I would not buy it again.

Located inside the Marketplace on the far west end. There's no name or witty signage just a blue bottle and lots of people in line. The coffee is good, hence the long line. They also have coffee beans, coffee makers, books, chocolate and small grab & go food items. Service was fast, friendly & efficient. Almond milk $1 up-charge.

I do not have 1 coffee drink that I always order and even have decaf at times. But this place is serious, don't even consider decaf, it's not available. And little besides coffee but the yogurt cup was delicious and the" Overnight Oats" a real winner. The staff was knowledgable, efficient and smiling. Order a Gibraltar, a double expresso with...

This is some of the better coffee I have come across in the USA. Being from Melbourne, and used to some decent coffee in our neck of the woods (not trying to sound like a coffee snob), I have been desperate to find coffee that resembles coffee (if that makes sense and not Starbucks!) Blue Bottle was good but not... More

Coffee was pretty decent and the wait times were fast (even with a long line). Caffe Mocha is the way to go. Don't ask for 'Steamed Milk' however, as it will destroy all flavour.

I don't know how this place does what they do. The lines are so long, but this is seriously good coffee and I can't believe, it but it is worth the wait. I am a skeptic. I love a cup of diner coffee, but this is a splurge. I had their iced coffee which is sweetened and with chicory. Good... More

West coast takes coffee seriously and Blue Bottle is one reason. Very good coffee, a bit more mild than others. Staff prepares each glass with the expertise you'd expect but quickly enough to keep the line moving. We went back more than once during our trip
