“Life Altering Iced Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

This is a destination place because of one thing. Mint Mojito Iced Coffee. I'm not sure how they make it but clearly there are angels working as baristas. This is something you'd need to try if you like iced coffee. Seriously. Like stop reading this and go. I'm serious. Go. Mint Mojito Iced Coffee.

You're welcome.

“funky & fun @ philz”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

really enjoyed the atmosphere at philz on 24th. comfy, home-spun kitschy. no espresso here, they brew every cup individually within a minutes. wide variety of roasts and flavors to choose from. if you want a good cup of quick drip, philz is the place

“I couldn't love this place any more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

Amazing coffee and friendly employees - this is a must stop when we visit, now that we no longer live in SF. Yeah, we're those people on your flight that reek of coffee from the pounds and pounds of beans we buy to take home with us! This place is SO much better than Blue Bottle - don't be fooled by their fancy Ferry Building location :-)

“What the Italians Have Done for Espresso, Philz Has Done for Drip Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

What the Italians have done for espresso, Philz has done for drip coffee. Have been to the store in the Mission many times and in every instance have enjoyed an exceptional cup of coffee, made all the better by a lippy hipster behind the counter. It's a friendly place where even a midwesterner can feel at ease chatting with others in the line. The baked goods are good company for the brew.

“Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

It wasnt bad or anything, but I felt that it was overrated. Perhaps it was because Rachel Zoe was raving about it. Just wasn't that impressed.
