Great latte and bake case. The reason there is a line here? It's good. Get on line if you love coffee. Not cheap, but it's not cheap. You will savor this cup of caffeine. Stop at the yummy French patisserie across the way on your stroll out too....

There's always a line at this coffee place! But it's soooo worth it! Make sure you order affogato espresso. It is served with Humphry Slocombe ice cream. Delish.

...but super long lines. Try to queue at the window around the corner, lines are usually a bit shorter here. It's so worth the wait though! Their hot chocolates are yummy too and they also sell a variety of coffee beans for home.

Blue Bottle serves very light roast coffee as their main thing and they do it well. But, don't discount or ignore the other cafes of San Francisco like Ritual or Four Barrel I refer to on my blog: battlemountain.wordpress dot co "No M" Look up our coffee post from August 2014.

I have been drinking black coffee for more than half-a-century (yikes). This is the best cup of coffee I have ever had. Period.

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.
