This was seriously the best coffee I have had, and the waffles are delectable! Watching them make it was also an experience. The perfect pick me up for a nice walk around the city. Highly recommended!

We enjoyed our coffee in spite of a way too long wait to place our order. We had bought desserts somewhere else, so it was a very plesant mid-afternoobn break.

The coffee is quite good, but there are some things that should be available within 1-2 minutes, a cup of coffee being one of them. Why people will stand in line for up to 15 minutes to get a coffee drink is beyond me. Plus, if you get some coffee drinks where they drip the coffee by the cup, by... More

'The best coffee I've ever had' was the review my other half have of their Americano I had a very tasty hot chocolate which I thoroughly enjoyed. You can buy bags of the coffee to take home too- it really is fantastic. Highly recommend this place along with many others in the ferry terminal for good quality food and drink

One of the best coffee places in town. Milk is heated to perfection i.e. not searing hot and boiling as in the now overrated Starbuck's. You can select almond milk if you like but considering water shortage in California, I would suggest the standard but very creamy cows milk they offer as the regular option. Cakes are a bit dry...

We were here on a Saturday morning when the markets are on. We were there fairly early so the line wasn't too bad. The staff were a little too cool for school. Great cappuccino, a little hot though.

Me and my wife loved Blue Bottle. The coffee was terrific, as well as the mocha and the latte. We went here three times the three days we were in San Francisco and was probably my favorite coffee anywhere. If you're in the area, get there early to avoid the long lines, and walk to the other end of the... More

Every drink from the simple menu is lovingly hand-crafted and smooth tasting. Their waffle is a nice morning treat too!
