this is first store of blue bottle coffee small shop to compare to another shop its nice shop enjoy about first store サンフランシスコのブルーボトルコーヒーの1号店と聞きました。 日本でもおなじみのブルーボトルコーヒーの1号店です。 小さい店構えながら存在感があります。 1号店は気になりますね! こちらの1号店は本当に小さなお店で そのまま残してあるのか!という感じでした。 私はこういうのも好きです!

Half self service - you need to order and pay first and if food is included it will be delivered to your table. I ordered double espresso maciatto delivered cold twice... My coffee was okay but not more than that. Expect queues and slow service....More

Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky
shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to
imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of
a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation
of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a
community park at its center and dozens of trendy
