“Mojito iced coffee lives up to its SF counterpart”
Review of Philz Coffee

Philz Coffee
Ranked #2 of 25 Coffee & Tea in Palo Alto
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

Philz lived up to my expectations after a year dreaming of mojito iced coffees following a trip to San Francisco.

The coffee shop itself is laid back with great service and tables outside - perfect.

This is by far the best coffee I have ever had. Each cup is hand brewed just for you. Seek the barista's advice for which of the 20 or so blends is right for you. Let them brew it and sweeten it to your taste. They add milk to every cup, unless you really can't have milk in your coffee, let them do this, because it is key to the experience. Prices are a little more than other places, but absolutely worth it. Don't settle for what Starbuck's brewing today, pick exactly the brew for you.of **Note: I personally dislike every single food selection they offer. Pastries are dry, flavorless...but plenty of people are buying them, so maybe its a matter of taste. But the coffee can't be beat, as is evidenced by lines out the door.

Really good bespoke coffee. Best in Palo Alto. I'd say that the iced coffee with fresh mint is my current favorite. Not as fast as Starbucks ... which is a good thing.

Stopped by this little jewel after lunch at a nearby restaurant. Had to wait probably 20 minutes in line to order and another 10 for our drinks at around 4pm on a Saturday and it was worth it. I will do it again for the most delicious iced mint mojito.

You will usually need to wait at this place because they do individual pour over coffee for you. The line was out the door when I went for the first time. But the wait is totally worth it.
