My friends and I stopped at Philz twice, both times on our way to the ferry building. I had been trying my best to go to a lot of the recommended coffee shops in SF, as where I live doesn’t have the same options. I...More

Even though most go to Philz for the amazing coffee and the variety of snack choices (including near perfect avocado toast), my favorite thing to order is the Yerba Mate tea. It takes a minute or two more than coffee to make, but it's always...More
