Some of the best coffee in SF. Artisan, and local. Freshly brewed, master crafted latte's and cappuccinos. If you are a coffee snob like me, you must stop here.

I like to drink blue bottle coffee in ferry building every weekend. There is always a long line of people waiting.

I got the recommendation to visit the ferry building from a friend who lives in San Francisco. I was headed there in the morning so I decided I would grab some coffee and walk down The Embarcadero. It was a beautiful sunny morning and the line was long. However, I think I waited about 5 minutes and it was defiantly... More

What more could you ask, but a bright sunny day in SF at the Ferry Buliding with a Blue Bottle Affogato, with the Humphrey Slocumbe brown butter ice cream.

My goto coffee shop whenever I'm in the bay area. I love visiting the Ferry Building on Saturdays so I head over to blue Bottle Coffee first to start my day. The line's always long. There's a "secret window" off to the side but that line gets long, too. My goto drinks are the drip coffee, the New Orleans iced... More

I have found it hard to find a decent coffee while on holiday in the USA. Everyone seems to like a tall, sweet latte! I love my macchiato, and this place does on ok one... By my snobbish standards.
