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.

I ended up here to take a coffe while I was visiting the ferry building. I saw a lot of people standing in the line waiting to take a coffee so I got cuorious and I decided to try one too. I ordered the drip one and it was a very good american coffee.

Really unique experience, the Ferry Building has a great atmosphere and the blue bottle makes the best coffee.

Stopped in here early in the morning after seeing it following dinner the night before. Fantastic coffee with great service. Location is outstanding being in the ferry building and close to other areas along the waterfront. Always a great visit. Give the Americano a try.

I am SO incredibly happy that there is one of these in NYC at Rock Center by my office! I had Blue Bottle every day during my visit in SF and was so excited that I could get the same amazing coffee at home! They also have great muffins and cookies but I drank my coffee with a cheese and... More

I know it sounds like hyperbole but I swear it was the best latte i have ever had! That being said, it was a Thursday morning around 9:00 and the line was huge. The wait for the coffee was a solid fifteen minutes and that was after waiting just to order the coffee. Now, I know that coffee that good... More

This coffee is a local experience and you'll have to wait for it all over town. There a locations near 5th St, in the Ferry Building and outside the Ferry Building as well. Service is friendly and the coffee heavenly. Buy a few bags to take home!

We love our coffee and will traverse a city high and low to find the best. Fortunately for us we found it right across the road from where we were staying at Hotel Vitale. Admittedly my husband had done some extensive research on where to look in San Francisco so knew that Blue Bottle was close by. We were not... More
