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

Slightly under-extracted shot. Milk textured well. Atmosphere was good, gentle music in background and stylish deco. In terms of service, the guy serving me was mumbling and I couldn't hear a word he was saying.

Really good coffee. A bit colder than I like but tasty and good vibes

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

They do a great cup of coffee, expertly made and with great beans which I’ll buy and there’s not many brands of beans I’ll buy. However I found the staff to be not as friendly as other cafes of the same caliber. Fitout is nice but a little on the minimal side.


Saint Frank

Russian Hill

Best cafe Saint Frank in san-francisco for 2016

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

Great coffee, not over or under extracted for their beans. Milk was textured well too. Nice vibe but music was a tad loud and had to raise my voice to talk to people. Overall, beats other coffee places I've tried in SF hands down! Service was average. Wish Starbucks could send their barristas here for training..!


CRO Cafe


Best cafe CRO Cafe in san-francisco for 2016

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

I’ve been here before and the service last time wasn’t good. Today was great!


Mazarine Coffee

San Francisco

Best cafe Mazarine Coffee in san-francisco for 2016

Fantastic coffee! Aussies will love it. Cool place to sit and the staff were lovely.

Great coffee, even by Melbourne standards. Seems to be very busy, and after tasting the cappuccino I can understand why. Saved my first day in SAN Francisco!
