Their Mochas are made with some of the best chocolate. Worth waiting in line. If you find the inside wait too long, check out the newer space just by the outside entrance to the building.

Ordered a caffe latte to go and got a show! They make each cup individually through a multi-step process and the taste is amazing. I got an incredible full-bodied cup of coffee that had just the right fruity and acidic notes I requested. The cup was very smooth and bold. You could tell they understood how to process and prepare... More

I started drinking Blue Bottle 10 years ago on Saturday mornings, waiting in line at the tiny shop in Hayes Valley. Truly the simplest and best most flavorful coffee one can have in the morning, with a NO- nonsense menu that is strictly coffee. No extra crazy drinks, shakes, or those sugar monster Frappachino drinks that Starbucks invented. This is... More

I was walking around at the Ferry Building and saw a long queue for coffee at this stall... so I decided to try and wasn't disappointed. Very nice fragrant coffee and would definitely recommend to coffee lovers.

The Blue Bottle Coffee in the Ferry Building has two separate counters that wraps around a corner, and another kiosk at the exterior of the building. The coffee is excellent, and they also have some teas on the menu as well. They make a delicious New Orleans cold brew with organic whole milk, which was delicious with a side of... More

If you want great coffee you pay great prices. That said this is lovely coffee and served with professionalism. Some snacks too. Expect to wait in line. It's worth it.

My wife and I tried to stop here for breakfast prior to heading out on a Napa Valley Wine Tasting Tour that met at the Ferry Building. We had looked into the breakfast options prior to heading out and found Blue Bottle to seem like a good choice. When we arrived, we were disappointed to find there were very few... More

Get down to the Ferry Terminal on the Embarcadero in San Fransisco. It's one of the best coffees in town. There is a long line, no seating, and little food. But who cares, it's all about the coffee! Grab one and chill out looking at San Fransisco bay, location and coffee! What more do we need?

Try to ignore the long lines, the high prices, and the overall snobbery of the place and focus on what's truly important: the coffee! This is some quality brew. If the coffee wasn't so good I'd never put up with all of this crap. The baristas craft your coffee with the utmost care and it shows (pretty designs on top... More
