There must be a dozen places to get a cup of coffee in the Ferry Building but this is the one with the line for good reason. A friend told me I had to try it on my trip to San Fran. Glad I listened. They individually brew each cup of coffee using the drip process. It's delish! And has enough caffiene to get you up those SF streets!
There's a side window that's sometimes open. The line is much shorter!
