Coffee was pretty decent and the wait times were fast (even with a long line). Caffe Mocha is the way to go. Don't ask for 'Steamed Milk' however, as it will destroy all flavour.

I don't know how this place does what they do. The lines are so long, but this is seriously good coffee and I can't believe, it but it is worth the wait. I am a skeptic. I love a cup of diner coffee, but this is a splurge. I had their iced coffee which is sweetened and with chicory. Good... More

West coast takes coffee seriously and Blue Bottle is one reason. Very good coffee, a bit more mild than others. Staff prepares each glass with the expertise you'd expect but quickly enough to keep the line moving. We went back more than once during our trip

Blue Bottle is the best of the best when it comes to coffee. The staff are very friendly and keep the line moving. Try one of the amazing waffles too! If you love fresh, strong coffee rich in complexity and depth, this is the coffee stop for you. You will not be disappointed.

If there's a line when you arrive, wait - it will be worth it! The almond lattes are the best I've ever had.

The coffee is amazing and the staff very helpful. I bring back several bags each time I visit. There is much more than coffee that I have yet to try. I hear nothing but good things about the food and specialty craft coffee drinks.

It's pretty simple, Blue Bottle is really good at what they do. It's one of those places where there's a long line for a reason. The good news for them is it seems to feed itself. The long lines seem to grow because people want to be a part of the experience. Good coffee and a fun experience all wrapped... More

Their Mochas are made with some of the best chocolate. Worth waiting in line. If you find the inside wait too long, check out the newer space just by the outside entrance to the building.

Ordered a caffe latte to go and got a show! They make each cup individually through a multi-step process and the taste is amazing. I got an incredible full-bodied cup of coffee that had just the right fruity and acidic notes I requested. The cup was very smooth and bold. You could tell they understood how to process and prepare... More

I started drinking Blue Bottle 10 years ago on Saturday mornings, waiting in line at the tiny shop in Hayes Valley. Truly the simplest and best most flavorful coffee one can have in the morning, with a NO- nonsense menu that is strictly coffee. No extra crazy drinks, shakes, or those sugar monster Frappachino drinks that Starbucks invented. This is... More
