Philz Coffee Restaurant Review

: A short walk from University Avenue, this Philz Coffee location is spacious with indoor seating and a reasonable amount of outdoor tables. Ample accommodations don't help the line move any faster, as ordering is as slow as the process by which these famous pour-over coffees are made. Coffee quality is extremely high and the range of classic coffees, as there are no espresso-based drinks, is exceptional. There's a modest offering of food, but one is better off sticking with the rarefied, rich drinks only.
