Philz coffee is awesome! The baristas are pretty cool here and can help you find what type of coffee flavor your are looking for since the menu can be a bit overwhelming if you are not familiar with the different roasts that they offer. I would recommend to order any of their coffees that adds a little of mint to it. It adds a touch of more flavor to the coffee.

What makes a coffeehouse lovely:
(1) Quality beans.
(2) Great shots of espresso.
(3) Friendly service.
(4) Hot hipster bariste.
Philz has plenty of (1) and extreme amounts of (3), but sadly doesn't really offer much in the (2) department. However, their handmade drip coffee stands supreme, and the refreshingly authentic smiles I received can't help but warrant Philz five stars. Still, I crave the endless whooshing of steaming hot jet streams that could cause an explosion if handled improperly. Coffee is like sex, in that it's better when there's an element of sudden death involved...
And to the (4) - call me ;-)

I love Arabic coffee and I love cardammom. Here each coffee is brewed one cup at a time. Have it with milk and sugar as they seem to know the perfect measure. Select your brew and mix and all senses awaken at any hour of day.

Forget Blue Bottle, Ritual, Sightglass and the rest. This is the best coffee house in San Francisco. My favorite is the Jacob's Wonderbar Brew. I had it served by Jacob himself at this location a few years back and have never looked back. On a rare warm day, I will order an iced mint mojito coffee, which is nonalcoholic and doesn't contain lime, if you were curious. A cup will cost you around $3 but it's well worth it. There are other locations throughout the city, including the Castro, Civic Center and near AT&T Park, as well as in Berkeley, Sausalito, San Jose, and I think even facebook HQ!
