So Delicious

My brother highly recommended the place from his visit earlier in the year and I'm glad I listened. Ordered a cup of the drip coffee and it was well worth the wait (and be prepared to wait). This is now my high standard for coffee. I just wish I hadn't waited until our last day in SF to try it!

Had heard SF was good for coffee and had heard of Blue bottle. Finally stumbled past it one day and It made my day. It was what I needed!

In a country where Starbucks is the benchmark for espresso coffee the Blue Bottle Coffee we experienced at the Ferry Building takes the experience up many notches. The line up for coffee was about 12 deep for the whole time we were there ordering, waiting and drinking our coffee. That no doubt is a testament to my words.

A very popular coffee shop in the Ferry Building - the best coffee we had in San Francisco. The waffles are also extremely good - the perfect start to the day. They open from 7am, so a great option if you intend to start your sight seeing early.

Saw a big crowd and, being from out of town, we had no idea why. Asked and heard that Blue Bottle is a hip coffee bar. Decided to give it a try. And, man, did it knock my socks off! Went out of my way to find another location and have the coffee again over the weekend. I'm a convert... More

It was fantastic coffee taste. However I had to wait for like more than 10 minutes just for a cup of espresso. It was even more frustrating when all the others got their lattes. I dont understand why espresso is more difficult to get, while the latte is also espresso based drink. Anyway taste itself was good.

Espresso-based drinks done right! We enjoyed checking out all the ferry building had to offer, and sitting outside by the water with our drinks. Very satisfying.

Can't say any more. My husband is a coffee aficionado and this is the only place we'd pilgrimage to EVERY day when in San Francisco

Blue bottle gets an extra star for offering almond milk, but really this is a 3 star review. I really enjoyed my iced coffee, but I would not make this a daily stop. $5 for 16oz, including ice is not in the budget. I might try some of their concentrate, though. I love coffee and I went to say I'd... More

The pour-over coffee is great. However, there is almost no seating at all. There are two lines, and at times other people grab my coffee by mistake.
