Ordered a latte - honestly the best latte I've ever hard. Lively hipster coffee shop with friendly staff and great coffee! #1 place on my list next time i'm in SF.

The title says it all. Blue Bottle has some of the best coffee in SF, but the wait for a latte to be prepared is agonizingly long. If you have the time, its 5 stars, if you don't, then 1 star. I had a bit of time, but was still annoyed. Put more staff on.

You know your coffee is good if you don't need to add any sugar or sweetener to it. You have come to the right place. The coffee here is creamy, smooth and tastefully sweet. If you have time for one cup of coffee in SF, this is where you should go. What's more, the location of the coffee shop inside... More

Their Cappuccino is a perfection. For both locals and visitors this place can be your cute coffee break. Downside: there's no seating in this location. But not a big deal as there are a lot of good outdoor public seating areas around the Ferry Building.

I think this is local nostagia over a local coffee provider. It's good coffee, but am I going to stand in a giant line for it? No. I went with my aunt who is from Australia and she didn't understand what some of the names for the coffee options like a 'cortado' for example and the young lady there was... More

Wonderful understanding of coffee roasting and brewing. Everything from drip, to au lait, to cold brew were delicious.

picked up Six 1/2 pound bags of Hayes Valley Espresso and have been brewing it at home. Just OK at best which is very surprising as I love dark roast and I do have a decent Espresso machine. I would not buy it again.

Located inside the Marketplace on the far west end. There's no name or witty signage just a blue bottle and lots of people in line. The coffee is good, hence the long line. They also have coffee beans, coffee makers, books, chocolate and small grab & go food items. Service was fast, friendly & efficient. Almond milk $1 up-charge.

Thank Christy A
