  • You'll pay with Square here, because Jack Dorsey is an investor in the shop
  • They don't serve tea here. And if you ask, you will be shamed. I think you can order from the coffee bar upstairs if the line is long (tho I haven't tried this top secret tip yet)
  • Pay for your coffee using Square and get a glimpse of the future.
  • Forget everything and go basic with an espresso shot. Cleanse your palette with a cool class of sparkling water chaser.
  • Boo, no wifi
  • ask for the Smokey Joe.
  • hooker's mocha - worth having just to say it out loud.
  • This coffee shop represents the pinnacle of western civilisation.
  • Try the ginger scone - the toughest to give up addiction in business
  • Try the ginger scone with an espresso and savor perfect harmony
  • not a fan of the hot chocolate, but the space is pretty awesome. great place for a quick meeting
  • Friendly staff
  • Sip on a cappuccino, grab a piece of orange cake, and pay at the counter with Square Wallet!
  • While you wait for your coffee, bother the baristas with coffee trivia, e.g., "does a cortado come in a ceramic cup or a glass?". Don't know the answer? Better get down to Sightglass.
  • Remember - drip drinks on the right. Otherwise you'll be waiting a looong time on the left
  • sit at the bar upstairs and people watch
  • Fantastic, high-ceilinged space with the roasting going on right in front of you. Try a hand-poured, single-origin drip coffee or a straight up espresso shot.
  • The usual laptop crowd stays away because of the lack of Wi-Fi and power plugs, and that's a good thing. This way, the coffee and the surroundings get the attention they deserve.
