This is undoubtedly the best coffee in the world. Unbelievably smooth, spectacularly rich, crema-topped, this is the coffee of your dreams. Sip it right outside on the waterfront, maybe paired with one of the Blue Bottle waffles, cookies, or other treats.

You will have to wait in a long line. It's just going to happen. The coffee is great and is a wonderful way to warm up while sitting outside and enjoying the views. It's worth the wait.

We visited here today en route to Napa via Vallejo. Our concierge for our wine tour recommended the place and we must have walked past 10 coffee shops between our Hotel and here.... Well it was well worth it. The coffee is made by professional baristas and the quality was excellent. My yoghurt and fruit compote was to die for... More

Ok, so I had my doubts when my brother-in-law was raving about this place until I took a sip of my sister's iced coffee! WOW! If I could not be jittery, not get dehydrated, and survive without sleep I think I could've just drank this stuff 24/7! The lines are long, but they move fast! The stuff is so good... More

Be ready to queue! All worth it. Their coffee is hands down the best. Individual drip coffee as well as espresso drinks are prepared artfully.

We stopped in on a Saturday, picked up a couple of iced coffees with almond milk and a bag of beans to use in our French press. They are third wave coffee roaster company.

Best soy latte I've ever had, with a beautiful design to match. The line can get a bit long but it's worth the wait as each barista makes sure to give you the best cup of coffee with a personal design. We enjoyed grabbing a cup of coffee and walking around the Ferry Building Marketplace. It's a great spot to... More

You hear a lot about Blue Bottle. They have a reputation for great coffee. It is for this reason that we were disappointed in the latte and au lait that we were given. They were just average coffees. They weren't bitter, but they lacked in flavour. Very run of the mill - why the hype?

A friend that lived there recommended us blue bottle, we LOVED it! We even planned our breakfasts to go and buy some coffee, plus the market inside is always lovely. I tried several and they were all delicious, specially the one they sell in the blue bottlle

It's a standing bar. Don't expect to have a place to sit down inside. But there are many benches on the patio.
