While visiting Graffiti Alley, stop by Philz Coffee on 24th St. There is a line but it goes quick. The place was crowded. There are murals in the wall and ceiling, the floor was painted at one point but is now well worn. Place your order and have a seat in an old church pew. The coffee was amazing! I had Ecstatic Iced Coffee and it was perfect. They make one cup at a time and have it down to a science.Recommended for:

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.Recommended for:

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!

Made to order quality coffee that is fragrant with a delightful aftertaste. No matter what you order, it will certainly satisfy. There is almost always a line but trust me, your patience will pay off.

goodbye blue bottle and HELLO PHILZ!
so much talk over the years about blue bottle but the best kept secret is that philz coffee just may be alot better. this is a great shop with a very cool upstair for live music and sitting back and relaxing with my favorite cup of coffee. another plus is the free wifi and the place was packed so i think many know about the free wifi and love their great coffee blends. i have many favorite coffees hear but i really love the tesora, philarmonic and the silk and splendor. i always make sure to stock up on the beans whenever i'm in the neighborhood.

My favorite location is at 24th & Folsom because of the comfortable furniture and low-key atmosphere. You can get a cup of fantastic tasting drip coffee for around $3, sit on the benches outside, and repose while you enjoy some fantastic people watching. They also have an assortment of baked goods including cupcakes, cookies, and donuts. For a dose of caffeine heaven, get the Turkish coffee with cream, sugar, and a sprig of mint.
