Best cafe Sightglass (SoMa) in san-francisco for 2016

My favourite cafe in San Francisco city! Atmosphere is amazing. Staff are friendly and helpful. Coffee is bang on!!! You will not regret!

Great coffee, atmosphere and friendly staff! Would definitely recommend!

Hip coffee joint worth a visit if you are in need of a good brew. I enjoyed the guy with the handlebar mo in braces. I ordered wrong, forgetting that Perth is the only place that does long machs topped up, so a short mach arrived which blew me. I think the USA equivalent is a cortado.

Best cafe Ritual Coffee Roasters (Mission) in san-francisco for 2016

Great coffee. I drink a soy piccolo in Australia which is a Gibraltar or a Cortardo here. Nice friendly staff too! Thanks 👊🏻👍🏻👌🏻


Saint Frank

Russian Hill

Best cafe Saint Frank in san-francisco for 2016

beautiful clean cafe with cool staff and great coffee setup 1000% worth dragging my girlfriend here from Nob Hill when we were over from Perth excellent coffee - would rival some top places in Australia and Wellington

Was a great relief to find great coffee and a great atmosphere so close to where we were staying. Fantastic.

Great philosophy and coffee combined. Latte with extra shot perfect. Good guys.

Best cafe Four Barrel Coffee (Valencia) in san-francisco for 2016

I’m an Australian tourist and had great coffee here. No terracotta cup, no burnt milk, and I will generalise and say I’ve found the coffee on my USA trip pretty good 😁. I has a cold coffee, brewed hot and poured over ice - fruity and delicious


CRO Cafe


Best cafe CRO Cafe in san-francisco for 2016

Best cafe Blue Bottle (Mint Plaza) in san-francisco for 2016

genuinely great flat white, nice crema and not too hot, quite unamerican

Coffee was really good! A little crowded, but that only means its good!

Real coffee in the heart of San Fransisco. Well made but still not to the level of Australia coffee. Also very expensive.


Mazarine Coffee

San Francisco

Best cafe Mazarine Coffee in san-francisco for 2016

What a great surprise smack bang on market st. Great coffee, warm vibe, cool ceramic ware (from Heath ceramics), nice looking food (I didn't try any but the avocado on toast looked so good).. and last but not least the coffee was great. I ordered a Gibraltar which is in between an Antoccino and a small flat white. It was smooth, rich and well rounded. Big fan!

Great place for excellent coffee for any Australians out there. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast too away from tourist haunts’ Recommended!
