What more can be said of this innovator in the SF Bay Area? Blue Bottle continues to be one of my favorite coffees with a variety of different beans to buy (complete with ideal brewing temperatures listed), a killer, best-in-class granola (try it!) and great coffee drinks. A simple cappuccino here will change your mind about coffee forever. This BB... More

We are from the northeast and are use to snarky hipsters! This Blue Bottle location is NO exception! The coffee IS good, and the price matches this. The line was long BUT bearable. If you truly will like to try a San Francisco institution....give it a try; bring your wallet, skinny jeans, dark framed glasses and snark....ha

Every time I'm in SF, I always get a coffee from Blue Bottle - one at minimum since it's not available elsewhere. The coffee does not taste much different from other places but I mean, I'm not a coffee connoisseur either.... as long as it has caffeine and wakes me up, I"m good. They have renovated since the last time... More

We went there as we heard the coffee is great. We have to wait for 20 minutes to order. It's true the coffee is nicely done and taste great. But I think it's not that much different from Peet's, which may have shorter queue with more branches.

Huge lines, anytime you go, so I decided to try this " special coffee". Born and raised in Brazil, I can say I am a coffee afficionada, I don't live without it. Well, no big deal, it is good but not exceptional. Just a fad.

On its face, the coffee is superb. But they act like they're carving the next great piece of Renaissance sculpture. I heard them interviewing the woman in front of me about her coffee preferences (when she didn't know what she wanted) like she was making a life decision. The pace was glacial. Don't get me wrong: I love a great... More

What's so great about this coffee? I'm not a big coffee drinker but every now and again it hits the spot. Thankfully, the line when I arrived was not too long, and I was able to order an amazing almond milk latte. It was worth every sip! Would I wait for a long time for this coffee? No - because...

This coffee is addictive, you must try it. I know I will be craving this for a long time. I'm looking forward to my next hit tomorrow morning.
