Simple selections, but quite a few varied choices. Recommend for an early morning pick-me-up. Beats Peets & starBucks !

We heard about blue bottle cafe from a couple of friends that are from the us that said this was the best coffee they ever had. It's really hard to not sound condescending - but seriously, this is below average. My cappuccino had a burnt taste to it, plus had zero foam.

Not sure what all the hype and long lines is about. Overpriced hipster coffee joint. Very friendly service. Guess it's cool to walk around the ferry building holding a Blue Bottle coffee cup.

I got the Cold Drip Nola coffee and was pretty impressed. It wasn't exactly spot on (we use a stronger chicory coffee in Nola than they do), but it was pretty close. I was not disappointed. And they filled it to the top which is nice compared to other coffee shops who don't!!

By far, one of my favorite coffee shops, whether in SF/Ferry Building or in Brooklyn, NY. Coffee is brewed by the cup, so the wait is a wee bit, but well worth it. Try the Giant Steps blend or any one of the single-source varietals. Friendly staff in addition to great coffee.

I enjoyed a Blue Bottle coffee every morning at the Ferry Building during my week long trip to San Francisco. Super friendly staff, quick service, and the most delicious coffee! What a treat!

One of the few places in SF that knows how to make coffee! Fast service in a compact section of a wider food hall. Well worth a visit.
