This is a fringe of downtown establishment where the locals go to get an above average cup of joe or a latte and read the New York Times or a specialty magazine. They carry periodicals on almost everything and are net to Garcia Street Books so there is always something to linger over.

I am a local who thought I would try DS again. They have a great selection of magazines and the atmosphere looks great. But my impressions is the same, great coffee mixed with a lot of local pretension. I think the attitude of the locals rubs off on the baristas. I live in the neighborhood, but will patronize elsewhere because... More

I lived near this cafe for awhile and I have always felt that they had great coffee. I just can't deal with the entitled and demanding customers. You'll see on here and on other sites, many people complaining about the service. I think the employees do an excellent job, considering the dump trucks full of B.S. they have to put... More

Excellent and smoothe. Extremely well-trained baristas with a "keep coming back" environment. Enjoy!

Good coffee, adequate atmospher....but that customer service...ouch. Perhaps the stress of preparing coffee cup after cup is too harsh on some personalities. Perhaps the vetting process should be more stringent.

We recently went on a trip out west and while we were in Santa Fe, we stopped by Downtown Subscription for pastries and coffee. I ordered a large cappuccino which was in a gigantic cup and was even better than the cappuccino we had in Italy. My husband said his coffee was the best he had ever had. They have... More

I was very surprised when I saw the good reviews for this coffee shop here. I have never been more disappointed or gotten worse service from a business. Please note that I've been here in multiple occasions, so I'm just gonna list a few of my experiences.The staff is not friendly at all, one time I walked in, and they... More

Yes, this coffee is worth the extra $ - it is great coffee with artists working the machines. You can read magazines and lounge outdoors or inside. Always busy and a great meeting place for friends and out of town visitors. Make your way there and you will be rewarded with the best neighborhood coffee shop in SFe.

I go to DS when I'm in the area (mostly for Garcia St Books) and enjoy sitting on the outdoor patio. Its mostly a coffee shop, with a few pre-preapared sandwiches/pastry. The locals do have a bit of an "attitude" and you see lots of social posturing when you are there. (I am a local). But you get a nice... More
