Blue bottle has great coffee. The slow drip is my favorite. The flavors are delicious and the coffee is strong. It's one of the few coffees I am willing to drink without cream and sugar.

this is first store of blue bottle coffee small shop to compare to another shop its nice shop enjoy about first store サンフランシスコのブルーボトルコーヒーの1号店と聞きました。 日本でもおなじみのブルーボトルコーヒーの1号店です。 小さい店構えながら存在感があります。 1号店は気になりますね! こちらの1号店は本当に小さなお店で そのまま残してあるのか!という感じでした。 私はこういうのも好きです!

Great little coffee shop in Hayes Valley. Good quality coffee and hot chocolate. Offers some sweet food togo with the coffee. Ask for it to be really hot, should you like it that way. Otherwise it will arrive at easy to drink temperature. Which was on the cool side for me.

I'm a tourist, so imagine my surprise to find some of the best coffee I've ever had in what looks to be a garage in an alley, served by barista's with gauges and covered in tattoos. Hey, who am I to judge it? The service was great and friendly and the coffee was out of this world. I was out... More

My friends always like to pop in to this little coffee kiosk after eating around this area. Always a little line but they are fast. My friend swears by their cappuccino. My favorite is the hot chocolate. Perfect for a foggy day.

Best capuccino we had in San Francisco by far. You have to trust your GPS on this one as the location is smallish road pretty much surrounded by car body repair shops and you wouldn't expect to find one of the city's hippest coffee outlets here. Persist and you will be rewarded!

Half self service - you need to order and pay first and if food is included it will be delivered to your table. I ordered double espresso maciatto delivered cold twice... My coffee was okay but not more than that. Expect queues and slow service. Much better options around

Staying in Hayes Valley

Neighbourhood Profile
Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a community park at its center and dozens of trendy businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish respite.
