The Best Coffee In Your SF Neighborhood

Thanks to newly discovering this sweet gem of a website, you and I now know where to go to get the good stuff. Click on the name of the cafe, and you’ll see these guys are serious-time in their assessment and rating system. Not for the average (cuppa) Joe.

I love it when they do this.

Fisherman’s Wharf (I’m not sure why you would ever go here, except to dine at Gary Danko) – Gary Danko (See? Though, note, this is not a cafe but one of the finest restaurants in the world.
