The coffee itself isn't the draw, it's the crowd and the heritage, if you will. Farley's is the social hub of the artistic Potrero Hill neighborhood, Among the artists and photogs who have admired the spectacular views from "Goat Hill" are Wayne Thiebaud and Jim Marshall. Anyway, I digress. Whether inside Farley's or seated outside at the new parklets, thumb through the piles of sketchbooks filled with cartoons, drawings, poetry of the customers over the decades...and don't miss the annual Halloween canine costume parade!

Yes, the staff used to have some "you are not cool" attitude, but trust me, that is gone. Management passed to the new generation, and baristas will now smile at you. Atmo still great, comfortable local scene, great coffee and pastries.

I love that they really don't try to too hard to impress and the coffee is exceptional. They support local artist and musicians and have wonderful neighborhood events. What's not to like? Btw: It's a coffee house so prices start at $1.50.

If only the staff were even remotely friendly. The atmosphere is great but the staff are so rude that I just can't spend money here.
