You can be assured of two things at Blue Bottle--great coffee and lines of people who love it. A quintessential San Francisco experience!
Blue Bottle Coffee Restaurant Review:
San Francisco’s famous Blue Bottle Coffee got its start at this fashionably small kiosk in a gritty Hayes Valley alleyway. Customers line up at all hours for espresso drinks, Beehouse drip coffee, and New Orleans iced coffee. The kiosk also sells coffee beans but only accepts cash. As always, the wait for even a plain cup of Blue Bottle joe is excruciating. Other locations.
The coffee here is delicious. You will absolutely get a perfect cappuccino every time, but the real reason to visit is their made-to-order Belgian waffles. Yum.
This little alley storefront is my favorite place for Blue Bottle. There's rarely a line and the coffee is phenomenal. On a warm day, I love their New Orleans style iced coffee.
