    I rarely get lattes, but this is the best latte art I have seen... AND they are delicious.

    Custom stereo retailer + Blue Bottle coffee shop (minus the Mint Plaza Blue Bottle line and crowd). One of the better kept secrets in SoMA for an intimate coffee meetup.

    Great sound system. The New Orleans style iced coffee is nice but of course you won't get latte art on it :) They have good pastries. Wifi password: coffeebar

    No longer just a Blue Bottle shop, they have great beans, great latte art, good coffee, and are never super busy. Get there early for the delicious pastries they have brought in.

    Melanie Aquino here was featured in SFGate as perhaps the best coffee artist in the world. Order a mocha and $5 and 5 minutes for a work of art. Take photo before drinking!

    Underrated place for blue bottle coffee. Rotating days of neighbor bakehouse and dynamo donuts. Pistachio blackberry jam croissant is killer.

    Staff can be a bit of turn off in places like this. Not here. Staff is very friendly. Forgot my coffee at the bar. It got cold. Without me asking, barista offered to add steamed milk. Loved it.

    Who knew! Super little coffee bar connected to an amazing audio gallery. Impressive design and impressive coffee. Great place to knock out a little work, too.

    What kind of coffee shop is this? Well, I asked the barista how the espresso is. Her response: "oh we keep it pretty dialed in". This is the correct answer. Great espresso, sparkly water back.

    As a denizen of the Foursquare NYC office, having amazing pour over readily accessible just steps away from our SF office is a true godsend.

    The New Orleans Style iced coffee is something I always look forward to when visiting SF. Be on the lookout for killer donuts, too!

    This place is fun as you can browse audio equipment you will never buy, and futuristic furniture you will never own. Great latte in the neighborhood.

    You can never go wrong with blue bottle coffee. Free wifi and nice to stop by if you're in the area but didn't love the ambiance.

    Get the pour over of the day. The quality of the cappuccino latte art drawings exceeds the quality of the drink

    Get an iced chai! It's a more socially acceptable way for adults to basically just order a glass of cold milk because coffee is too bitter for them.

    Cool vibe but if it's nice out they likely won't have New Orleans style coffee by 3-4PM or so, which I was hoping they would

    Excellent coffee, astounding hi-fi showroom, with friendly service. Whether you have 5k or 100k to spend on a sound system, come here.

    Love the latte art, but the coffee isn't as consistently good as other Blue Bottle venues.

    This is a hidden gem of a cafe. Small, but solid. Could use more air flow.

    Get the raisin-cinnamon-roll pastry thing. It looks dry as the Sahara, but it's really moist and delicious.

    Don't worry, it only sounds like a stereo store. It's a great spot to do some work.

    Not impressed. Their new orleans was bitter and sour so I asked about it. She made new Americano for me instead, but that was also bitter, as if it was sitting there for a while.

    Their drip coffee is potent, if you need an energy boost. A latte and drip are enough to give me the jitters.
