    Huge space for sf coffee shop. Nice and cozy upstairs area.

    The Hooker's Mocha is amazing, but it's not sweet--it's dark, strong, and bitter.

    Sip on a cappuccino, grab a piece of orange cake, and pay at the counter with Square Wallet!

    Tech hipster. I hate this place, actually, because acoustics were sacrificed for aesthetics, and it has a very self-satisfied vibe. But everyone eats it up. The Mission location is less douchey.

    Sweetly order a cup of tea and then drink deeply of the judgy disdain the barista serves up in response to you not ordering coffee.

    Super stingy on the pour overs, which are the most expensive in the city

    Hot chocolate wasn't hot! Cool space, but with only 10 people here at 10:30AM on a Sunday, the space should be available within 9 months...

    Beautiful space with extremely high ceilings, but higher than average prices. This location does not offer any wifi nor outlets. Not a good place to do any work on your laptop.

    Hooker's mocha is great. No Wi-Fi in 2014 is a huge disappointment!

    the upstairs bar is adorable but avoid trying to actually get any service from there. I stood there for a good few minutes wanting to order some pastries and was hopelessly ignored by the server

    I was very disappointed. I've had the coffee before. But today, my Americano was short, muddy and note-less. And the staff, disturbingly aloof, and charged me for my replacement drip-coffee! 😳

    Try the hooker mocha, its not your typical mocha. Not very sweet but I prefer it that way.
