“Worth the Wait”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

There must be a dozen places to get a cup of coffee in the Ferry Building but this is the one with the line for good reason. A friend told me I had to try it on my trip to San Fran. Glad I listened. They individually brew each cup of coffee using the drip process. It's delish! And has enough caffiene to get you up those SF streets!
There's a side window that's sometimes open. The line is much shorter!

“Great Coffee!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Love their coffee. Great place to have a wonderfully roasted cup of coffee if you're in the Ferry Building.

“Come here for good coffee!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

It was a little out the way for us but the amazing coffee was worth it. We were there around quarter past 10 on a Tuesday morning and there was a queue out the door filled with creative business types. Definitely recommend.

“Excellent coffee in a city of coffee fanatics”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

I had an excellent caffe americano at this Blue Bottle Coffee branch. Efficient and friendly service, and they use the convenient Square payment app if you're using a card to pay. I combined their coffee with a piece of cake from the Miette bakery across the way.

“Great coffee!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

The picture above is misleading. I imagined this place to be a sit down restaurant with your typical breakfast options available. The location at the Ferry Building Marketplace is much like Starbucks in that you order from the counter and wait for your drinks to be prepared. Unlike Starbucks, seating is much more limited and there aren't half of the food options, maybe 5 or 6 pastry options includingthe waffle?

All this being said, the coffee is outstanding. The drips are individually made. The line can be long. If you're with someone else, send them down to Acme Bread for pastries while you wait in line for coffee.
