Consistently rated among the top coffee shops in San Francisco, Blue Bottle has a separate tented area for coffee purists. We waited as the Ethiopian blend - available only briefly - was prepared. The lovely barista recommended a few sights and added to our trip with her kindness.

Coffee was good. Ambiance is urban. Large windows with countertop seating. This is good coffee and there is always a line. Yes, I'll go again.

Being from Melbourne, we are used to having great coffee and nice breakfasts. This has proven difficult to find in the U.S. Blue Bottle has been the best coffee and breakfast we've had in the U.S. Great service too.

Very busy inside, but there is outdoor seating that's more laid back. Great coffee, excellent breakfast food!

When looking for a coffee shop while visiting San Francisco, I highly recommend Blue Bottle for both its drip coffee and breakfast selections. Further, the staff was friendly and outgoing. They take pride in their products and it shows as I made it my go-to place for morning coffee and breakfast while on vacation. The drip coffee is rich in... More

I tried their Tunisian Egg which was two poached eggs in a mix of tomato/onion & spices sauce. It was so delicious. We arrived there at 9 am on a Thursday and waited for 30 min in the line till get to the cashier to place our order.

Had their cold brew and it was delicious. Be warned there's often a line and no space to sit so do a take away.

We went for the amazing coffee but also really enjoyed the avocado toast. Beautifully presented on fantastic bread and deliciously seasoned avocado.

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
