Blue Bottle Coffee – Financial District

If you happen to be in the Financial District, this glorious, marble tiled, high ceilinged coffee shop located on Sansome street is the perfect place to snag an expresso or iced coffee.  Coffee is served from their sleek central bar crafted of white marble and wood.  Not only is Blue Bottle’s newest location (they have a shop by the Ferry Building) larger and more spacious, but it also offers an extensive food menu of pastries and sandwiches!


Mazarine Coffee – Financial District

Another chic coffee spot in the Financial District, is Mazarine.  Step inside this market street find and you’ll be greeted by beautiful tiled cloves backing the baristas.  Its comfy leather banquettes are perfect for relaxing with your coffee in one hand a good book in the other!


Reveille Coffee – Mission Bay

Reveille, which means “wake up” in French is the new spot in the Mission Bay neighborhood.  This bright and airy space  features a sleek coffee counter with an eye catching expresso bar composed of graphic tiles and grey leather stools.  With its full menu, artful cappuccinos, and a great beer and wine selection, this hidden gem is one of the favorites among many locals!


The Mill – Nopa

A joint venture between Four Barrel Coffee & Josey Baker Bread, the Mill is the best of both worlds!  I have to say the toast here is some of the best I have ever eaten!  Although there is no wifi, its Instagram-worthy interior makes it a cool place to unplug and have a real conversation with a friend over some toast and a cup of coffee!

Jane is more than just a coffee shop mainly because of the attention put into their menu filled with scrumptious choices. The natural lighting and insanely chic black and white decor make it the perfect setting for zoning out on a laptop.  This popular spot might be hard to grab a seat but once you try their freshly baked goods, you’ll see why its worth the wait.  But if you’re not craving something sweet, they have delicious avocado toasts (of course) as well as plenty of panini and salad options for lunch!
