There aren't many places in San Francisco to get good coffee. But both here and their sister cafe in the mission district is some of the best coffee you'll get. The depth of flavour that is poured from a variety of different beans from both south america and africa which are roasted in house is of a similar standard that... More

Excellent coffee as they roast their own and seem to source many of the other coffee shops in the area. Friendly staff who are happy to talk about coffee and know their stuff. Very trendy surroundings with lots of seating upstairs. Please to park bicycles out the front, no dogs allowed.

Cool location for a stop over in SOMA. Staff surprisingly unpretentious for a place like this. Good coffee and nice pastries - well worth a visit.

We had great coffee (latte and cappuccino) and the pastry was delicious! Atmosphere is quiet, lots of techies, plenty of tables, wifi. All the usual. Building is a refurbished/remodeled older warehouse south of Market. This visit their coffee bean providers and then roast the beans on site.

Very cool spot with retail and Wholesale being operated under one roof. Definitely a unique experience. The coffee is excellent, the customer service is great and the ambiance gets an A+.

This is one of the San Francisco institution, when you walk into the place it has that warehouse feel coffee bean roasting on one side, packaging on the other side. You can order coffee already brewed or by slow dripping, your choice of coffee bean, either way they are good, I recommend the ice coffee, Nice to go on the... More

Probably one of the largest coffee houses I've been in. Coffee is good and strong and it's fun to watch the employees work with the beans. Nice restrooms.

It was a nice change of pace from Starbucks being on every corner. We read about Sightglass Coffee from a travel magazine offered in our hotel room and thoroughly enjoyed our drinks there (and scones, too!) They were roasting and packaging which was interesting to see and smell. We were there at about 8:45am on a weekday so it was... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
