The coffee at Blue Bottle is truly amazing. I had a pour over drip and it was amazing. Worth the wait in line.

If you love coffee you will love Blue Bottle. They know quality coffee. You won't want to go back to Starbucks ever again. I wish we had this coffee in my east cost hometown.

it was good. but i couldn't find something special there. The store is located in Ferry building 1st floor. the store inside was very small so it is good for take-out coffee. There were no seat to stay inside. The coffee taste's was very normal. I ordered New Olyans coffee that is famous.

Great espresso based coffees. The location is great and lots of other wonderful eating places in the building. One of the other reviews said this is no better than Starbucks, you have to be kidding! Absolutely no comparison, much, much better coffees. Queues were fine when we were there even during busy times of the day.

They got good coffee. It is good. But the line is not meaning that this is the best coffee ever. I would not wait for this.

Best coffee in the building. Get in line and grab your latte. Go outside and talk a walk down the Embarcadero!!

The line inside the Marketplace is ridiculous. Step outside on the sidewalk side, and there's usually no line. A bit pricey, but hey, look where you are. Great cup.

This coffee shop is supposedly the bomb in the ferry building, sadly, I was not that impressed at all. Same old coffee with just organic milk ( which maybe made a slight difference ). I would still go get my at any Starbucks nearby.

Need I say more other than that people stand in line for 30 minutes or more. You have to try it.... Even just once you can go outside of the building as well where there is one too.

Their cappuccino is always good and the fresh baked waffle is a nice treat. I always pop in to get my drink and then do my walk along the water towards Golden Gate Bridge. Inside the Ferry building. Sometimes the wait can be long, but worth it.

Thank KevinD001
