“Great place for Tea/Coffee and working”
Review of Philz Coffee

Philz Coffee
Ranked #5 of 25 Coffee & Tea in Palo Alto
Restaurant details
Reviewed 25 February 2014

I like to work a lot out of cafes. The energy of everyone around helps me concentrate. I don't always do it but sometimes it is the best way to concentrate. I found that at this Philz, the atmosphere is great for that because a lot of people are working. Besides, the coffee and Tea are excellent and they are made to order.

Found this too complicated for coffee. Even just to tell them how much milk/cream and sugar you want. When coffee came it was not too great and would have liked it hotter. Should have an option for a smaller cup. Ordered the small but more like almost a medium cup.

What a treat. This location jam-packed with students on the Mac books is a must visit spot. Order from a well versed enthusiastic person at the bar and then go pay by the bakery display. Order some cookie or fresh treat brought in daily. The Jamaican Blue mountain at $10 a glass is a splurge that is actually worth it.

I really mean it when I say Palo Alto's Philz coffee shop is boiling with life. Packed with young people, mostly working with tech companies, chat and sip their hand made hot drinks.

Philz makes your drink in front of you by hand. The coffee is ground, hot water and some spices are added while you chat with your barista. Then enjoy your drink indoor or elsewhere.

Usually on Friday evenings you can watch live music in this place. Keep in mind if you are looking for a quiet place, this will not be your coffee shop.

My wife drag me into this place, and I was pleasantly surprised. Very impressed with the staff. During our one week stay in Palo Alto, my family visited Philz 5 times, and it's that good. The mint ice coffee prepared by Quinn was awesome under the scorching sun. Try to avoid morning/lunch rush hours, because you maybe standing in line for 8-15 minutes.
