Blue Bottle Coffee Restaurant Review

: San Francisco’s famous Blue Bottle Coffee got its start at this fashionably small kiosk in a gritty Hayes Valley alleyway. Customers line up at all hours for espresso drinks, Beehouse drip coffee, and New Orleans iced coffee. The kiosk also sells coffee beans but only accepts cash. As always, the wait for even a plain cup of Blue Bottle joe is excruciating. Other locations.
