Vegan 🥕 cake was good organic apple cider even better nice relaxing vibe and even the group of 60's folks with their belongings and dogs on street were just right. Nice to see cafe owners happy to let them use toilets and charge their phones...(very non 60's guys lol).More

Stopped by for a coffee and chai as we wandered through Haight Ashbury. Great latte, chai latte and awesome piece of cake. Worth the stop. Thank you 🙂

Perfect cup of cappucino. Service was friendly, there was a bit left from the hippie days, and there are a lot of books and newspapers to peruse when you're there

The service is excellent, friendly, and prompt. Coffee is about a B+. Biggest problem is the unpleasant odors emanating from historically too many clients who spend far too much time there, The stench is overpowering at times. Street people also congest the sidewalk outside, This...does keep me away at times and headed towards Cole Valley instead.More

I really love this place for what it is. There are so many upscale coffee places around that are really good but crowded and not that comfortable to hang out in. Coffee to the People offers plenty of space and tables, even couches. Coffee and...snacks are good as well -- pretty much as good as anywhere else.More

Spending 5 days in Frisco to see all the sights. Coming from Texas. Have pretty much traveled all throughout the US, and it seems that San Francisco is about the most expensive place we have visited. With that in mine, be prepared to pay more...for food, and there really isn't any way to get around this unless you prepare you own meals. We had just stopped by Twin Peaks ( scenic views) and headed down to Haight-Ashbury. We parked our car, and wanted a quick lite breakfast before we walked the area. Looked at Trip Advisor, but it doesn't seem like this area is much for dining. So we came across "Coffee to the People" and decided it would be as good as any. Polite owners were very accommodating and the coffee was excellent and probably the pastries would have been also. But we ordered some breakfast sandwiches that were just okMore

This cafe has good sandwiches, great service, and even better coffee. There was enough room and a good environment for me to get work done. There are stickers, signs, and images throughout the cafe that are inspiring, remind you of social justice work that needs...to be done, and are empowering.More

The coffee and service was outstanding. Company and vibes were great. Loved that pets were aloud, and just a hang out for the local culture. Must return...

Excellent coffee and the perfect ambience -- we could not have chosen a better coffee stop on our tour of the neighborhood if we had planned it. It was so low key but friendly -- visitors and (apparently) locals who would just walk in and...get their brew or linger over their books and devices.More

OK, so I've not had every single coffee from every single coffee shop in the entire world. But I have been around the world and I do travel fairly extensively and I have had coffee in most of the places I have been. CTTP is...wonderful. I send anyone I know who os heading to San Francisco. Some even bring me a packet of house blend back. They are good people. No, they are great people. If I wasn't vehemently atheist, I'd thank God for those people. And for Coffee To The People.More

Great vibe, eclectic decor featuring local works of art for sale, VERY reasonable, nice menu with fresh savories, oats, breads sandwiches, fruits and much much more. The coffee was amazing and, they offer a whole pot of french press for $6. enough to share or...make new friends with. I met some local artists whom I shared a pot with. I got great local advice on places to visit and got a real feel for SF local life. What a gem of a coffee house.More

We needed a good cheap meal for a family of 5 on the move. The food was good, served quickly, with a smile, the coffee was ok, and the free wifi kept the kids happy (and quiet). We would definitely go back again.

Coffee To the People is a great place for a pick me up while exploring the laid back Haight Ashbury! The decor is eclectic and motivating, very well suited for the district. The coffee was free trade, organic and very delicious. Worth a stop when...in the area!More
