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.

I went for the coffee and came back for it. It's definitely a notch up from Starbucks. But it annoys me that when you pay card they make you choose 15, 20 or 25% service. For counter service is quite steep.

There was a long queue here where they loving make your coffee. We came as were recommended by a tour guide to visit as apparently it has the best coffee in SF, but I'm not so sure, tasted quite regular to me.

If you're a coffee addict I recommend hunting this place out. We were recommend this place from a barista in Monterey if we needed a hit they knew their moccacino from this macchiatos. Still a smooth blend but well made.
