Simple name; extraordinary coffee. This Bernal Heights java house offers up Ubuntu and iced coffee that's cold brewed for 36 hours and served with coffee ice cubes. And yeah -- that's co-owner Wilson Jones slinging espresso shots behind the bar.
This independent Noe Valley coffee shop is aggressively anti-corporate, staunchly green, and everything you could ask for in a neighborhood meeting place. There’s no Wi-Fi, so don’t come here hoping to camp out all day with your laptop. Instead, the owners encourage customers to strike up a conversation with a real person — what an idea! From the cute bulldog logo to the monthly art shows to the quaint patio out front, you’ll feel like you’re in small-town suburbia at this unassuming neighborhood cafe.
This charming Cole Valley spot is perfect for tasty java on the run, and if you have time to stay, be sure to try some of their homemade specialty items and the Nutella-equipped condiment bar.
Bacon. Donut. Day. Dynamo Donut & Coffee has made it real, and available every day. Handmade daily by owner Sara and her staff and using organic, locally sourced ingredients, their creative take on donuts make the word "glazed" suddenly sound mundane and unworthy.
Baking incredible fresh bread daily (made with flour from from their German mill) this partnership between the Barrel guys and Josey Baker Bread is a constant go-to for a bite, coffee, and some quiet contemplation. As you'd expect from a place that has a serious way with dough, the BYOB Monday pizza nights and Wednesday grilled cheese and soup nights are not to be missed.
The café counterpart to Dogpatch's Piccino restaurant, this coffee bar serves up espresso drinks and Sightglass pour-over coffees. The food options, like oven-hot sticky buns and house-made granola, are a step above run-of-the-mill coffee shop bites. The communal table and long hours (it's open until 10pm) make Piccino a great place to chill with a book and chat with some neighborhood regulars.
This San Francisco-based coffee chain is a city staple that's perfected the art of drip coffee. Philz doesn't serve any lattes, cappucinnos, or espressos -- just really good coffee blends. All of the coffees are roasted at the chain's roasting plant in Oakland, and each blend features two to seven different beans. The signature order is the medium sweet with cream "Philz Way."
Right off the dog park, an awesome spot to grab a bagel or sammy along with your morning coffee while watching the pups play.
The cultishly-popular BBC opened up its first true cafe in SoMa, where baristas sling dark blends inside Mint Plaza. As you stride, post-latte, into the facilities, you'll feel superior to any holdovers still loitering outside.
Four Barrel is not only the best coffee in San Francisco, but it’s earned praise as some of the best in the country with sustainable practices and tasty beans. It’s all about the coffee at this Mission shop (with locations in Portola and The Mill on Divisadero), so don’t expect a laptop-friendly, camp-out-all-day vibe. Since 2007, Four Barrel founder Jeremy Tooker has carried the flag for light roasts, single origins, and a soundtrack dominated by vinyl instead of carefully curated Spotify playlists.
If you’re at Fisherman’s Wharf, you can't beat Biscoff's for a quality cup of Joe, which is European-style AND every cup comes with a free cookie!
Nice airy cafe with open faced sandwiches, good coffee, beer & wine, and a bunch of outdoor seating.
For all the times you've thought that your coffee just isn't "single origin and made to be tasted through three different methods" enough, you should check out Sightglass's upstairs coffee bar, where you can geek out on the craziest caffeine they have to offer.
At this spot with a huge front parklet with tables and 4 benches, they serve almost 30 types of in-house roasted coffees along with lunch and breakfast fare.
Since opening in 2010, Reveille Coffee now has four locations in San Francisco (Jackson Square, Mission Bay, North Beach and the Castro). From the French press to the aeropress, lattes to cookies, Reville is focused on quality. Its Castro café is small but warm, if not uber modern, and a nice place to chill and work if you can find a seat.
While not the buzziest (!) of SF coffee shops, if you haven’t made it into Saint Frank on Polk, you’re missing out on some of the city's best sneaky-fantastic coffee in a serene and simple environment. This modern and stylized shop serves Ritual Roasters beans in a refreshingly minimalist space. Don’t miss the homemade almond and macadamia nut milk that makes for a fine a cappuccino whether or not you're a non-dairy type, plus the rarely seen espresso and tonic (just try it).
Although the Financial District location of the Mission’s giant Coffee Bar (you know, the one with two levels, beer, and a picnic table out front) is not as extravagant, it still has everything you could need in a coffee shop (i.e. really good coffee). It’s in the FiDi, after all, so it’s meant to get you in, get you caffeinated, and get you out without the fuss and the hordes of people camped out on laptops.
Located in a permanent pop-up run out of a shipping container, the Hayes Valley iteration of Ritual Coffee is a great spot for a cup, and since they share the space with Smitten, you'll end up with a sweet deal no matter what.
This tiny, light-filled cafe may not be the most reliable bet for snagging a table to enjoy your treat, but it’s worth it to grab a cup of Ritual coffee to-go (or a lavender early grey tea latte) and a fresh Dynamo Donut. This Inner Richmond joint is equipped with WiFi For those who do manage to stake out a table -- so when you find yourself west of Divisadero, remember fifty/fifty as a great place for a morning pick-me-up.
Though it may get a little crowded inside, Beanery's reasonably priced coffees, fresh pastries, and friendly service make it worth your time when you find yourself around the Inner Sunset.
This hip Marina storefront features art from Bay Area artists and reclaimed-wood countertops while slinging the same high-quality joe you can expect from a Peet's.
This Nob Hill go-to may not have the cache of a Four Barrel or a Blue Bottle, but it does have a sunny and welcoming interior in which it pours reliably excellent coffee sourced from Colombia and Guatemala and roasted in-house. Important note if you plan on posting up with your laptop: they also have empanadas.
Step it up a notch at Cup with A) the giant coffee cup sign outside, but more importantly B) The Havanna, an espresso drink sweetened with condensed milk.
Garden House Cafe has a sweet patio to back up their quaint name, and a super strong house brew to back up your caffeine addiction.
Found all the way in the Outer Sunset, Andytown roasts its beans in-house, and has a fairly straightforward collection of options. We love to stop by Andytown for a delicious and cheap cup of coffee, and we suggest that you stop by and taste for yourself.
This bright cafe in Pacific Heights is great place to drop in for coffee and an out-of-this-world house-made pastry, like fig bread, espresso cinnamon rolls, and almond fennel biscotti. Its lunch menu features an array of salads, like Cobb and Nicoise to various takes on kale, plus a few paninis made with fresh-baked bread.
Farley's is kind of like the coffee shop version of Cheers. They make the community their main priority -- right after making great coffee for the community to sip on that is.
It doesn't have a ton of compeition, but House of Snacks is by far the best coffee shop in The Presidio, thanks it the fact that it brews Blue Bottle Coffee and, um... snacks?
Thanks to the homemade almond milk and its single-cup-pour-overs with beans roasted at Contraband, this place earns the top spot on the Russian Hill coffee shop.
Your coffee comes with a little kick of kink at this BDSM cafe. Fuel up with fellow fetishists on waffles, paninis, salads, and more, while perusing Wicked Grounds' wide selection of kink gear and literature. The cafe is 18+ , as it regularly hosts events and workshop centered around its theme. Oh yes, and food is happily served in dog bowls by request for your submissive or human puppy.
At Nob Hill’s farm : table, the perfect neighborhood coffee & breakfast spot, you’ll find a constantly changing menu of organic and homemade goods (like fresh-made granola and yogurt, croissants with delicately poached eggs, and broccoli bacon tarts). Sip on your organic coffee with house-made almond milk, and watch as your morning sets itself off on the right foot.
If you're in Union Square it's hard to look around and NOT see a Starbucks. Unfortunately, (or fortunately?) it's basically your only option if you're looking for coffee around here.
