Foursquare Tips

  • The gourmet coffee company has been multiplying throughout the Bay, but as charming as the Hayes Valley original garage outpost is, the Mint Plaza location was BB's coming-out party. [Eater 38 Member]
  • A great stop for hand-crafted artisanal coffee and small breakfast options. As recommended by Travel Channel host, Anthony Bourdain.
  • This cafe is like second home to the techies hammering away at nearby co-working spaces, such as Hub SoMa. Come prepared to wait for your coffee--and strike up a conversation.
  • If you don't like the New Orleans Iced Coffee, I'm fairly sure you're a cylon.
  • they must have sprinkled crack in my New Orleans Iced Coffee.
  • Can't make up your mind what to get? Do what the Canadians do, and order BOTH an iced coffee and a latte.
  • New Orleans iced is the best thing ever.
  • Sometimes I look at all that glassware and equipment and wonder if they turn this place into a meth lab at night.
  • Does 'never drink other coffee' count as a tip?
  • ask about the "money hose."
  • if you like blue bottle then you will like sightglass too. it is better and superior
  • Arguably the best gourmet coffee in San Francisco and/or the world. There's always a line but oh so worth it. If it's too busy, you can take the coffee and stroll around Mint Plaza.
  • The mint tea here is off the chain good. Make sure you stir it though!
  • This itty bitty kiosk always has a line of excited patrons in front of it, patiently waiting for their creamy lattes or New Orleans iced coffees. It's worth the wait.
  • Try a's #28 on 7x7's Big Eat SF 2010.
  • The New Orleans iced coffee with soy is epic, but the breakfast here is also amazing (poached eggs on toast). If you can't stay for breakfast, get the granola. Best ever.
  • Order a SG-120.
  • You haven't suffered enough for your coffee of you haven't waited at least 20 minutes.
  • Sit at the counter with the glass pane to the left of register and watch the coffee brew.It's hypnotizing.
  • The plain coffee is the specialty here and only $2. Skip the espresso bar, but be sure to try the food. This location is often overlooked as a great spot for a healthy lunch.
