Nice trendy spot for a good cup of handmade brew and chill spot to work or people watch. Anytime is good the lines get long but moves fast! Upstairs has plenty of tables and chairs.

Well, nowadays, techester atmosphere (hipster techies from nearby SOMA tech giants like twitter, Airbnb, Pinterest etc). Still, excellent coffee in the shop that had burlap and reclaimed wood before they became a thing. L'endroit original des bobos de San Francisco. Bon cafe, espresso et vinnoiseries.

There aren't many places in San Francisco to get good coffee. But both here and their sister cafe in the mission district is some of the best coffee you'll get. The depth of flavour that is poured from a variety of different beans from both...More

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
