Indie coffeehouse gets the basics right 3/21/2010

There are two locations of San Francisco Coffee, and both have a gloriously local fanbase, mostly comprised of indie business owners, artistic types and neighbors who are still upset that Highland Bagel turned into Osteria. I like SF because of two reasons. It has the coffee pureness of Octane w/o all the pretentious laptop people, and their ham & cheese croissants are wonderful. They're baked each day at the Morningside/Emory location, and they are loaded with gooey swiss and salty ham. The croissant tastes like good croissants are supposed to: they're flakey and have way too much butter. Which is a good thing. Not every day, maybe, but definitely a good thing over all. Pros: Ham & cheese croissants/purist coffee Cons: Sometimes it's too crowded to where you can't find a seat more

Good local coffee shop 2/2/2008

SF coffee makes a wonderful cappuccino. In the days of the automatic, press-a-button drink makers, it is refreshing to have someone take a little time, and make sure the drink is served the way it should be. While not quite quenching my desire for a truly authentic Italian or French cafe (I know it is San Francisco Coffee, but it didn't take me there either), the cappuccino sure tasted authentic. Served in a nice cup, saucer and miniature spoon included (Thank you!), the froth was wonderfully creamy and the espresso underneath had a wonderful smooth flavor. The biscotti on the other hand was a bit stale tasting and the odd chocolate chip and raisin (I think?) combo seemed a bit odd. The spacious patio is inviting to to watch the bicyclers pedal by, or just to read the New York Times. Pros: Wonderful Cappuccino Cons: Ambiance, Price, Not so well done biscotti more

Vegan Cakes!!!!! Thank You!!!!! 11/16/2007

Oh my god - the chocolate peanut butter cake - to die for........sooooooo tasty and VEGAN!!!!! The atmosphere is nice and I always have great coffee - its clean. the staff is nice - I like the one in Poncey-Highlands but my favorite is the one on the corner of N. Highland and Amsterdam - I guess because thats the one I go to most often (closest to my home) - everyone is friendly and I know I already said it but Vegan deserts that taste awesome! WoW! Pros: Vegan deserts - awsome atmosphere and coffee - lots of seating! Cons: NONE!!!!!! more

A good neighborhood coffee spot. 12/26/2006

I've visited SF coffee several times, mainly to meet people who live in the area for a good cup. Pros: Good blends and roasts, laid-back atmosphere, the patio is nice spring-fall Cons: Parking can be a pain if the restaurants around it are packed, and it can get loud when busy more

Why We Broke Up 6/28/2006

I am new to Atlanta, and am trying to find a coffee shop. I went to San Francisco Coffee for the fourth time today. This was sort of like a date. I was about ready to settle with San Francisco Coffee as my coffee home. I don't know what tipped me off. Someone in line ahead of me asked for a double shot of espresso in their latte. I thought, ""That's strange, you shouldn't have to ask for a double shot of espresso, unless maybe they're buying an 8 oz?"" I ordered two 20 oz. Americanos, having a friend with me. I haven't been buying 20 oz coffee, but I've been tired the last few days. Then, before I handed the guy in the orange shirt my money, I asked ""How many shots in a 20 oz?"" When he said ""One, all of our drinks are made with one shot."" I almost flipped. No wonder I've been tired. I work behind a counter myself. I understand tipping, I understand that nothing is really the guy in the orange shirts fault. But I can't believe that buying a large Americano, I'm paying not for more coffee, but for more water to water down the one measly shot of espresso they're giving me. There is a general rule of thumb: 8 oz: one shot. 12 oz, two shots. 16 oz, two to three shots. 20 oz, 3 shots. The price on the board seemed to follow this rule, increasing with oz size. I asked the barrister if I was buying water, and he said ""Well, and the cup."" He then hastened to add that they self-roasted the coffee, but a shot of that won't do me much good in a 20 oz cup of water. I spent over $7.00 on two Americanos, after paying .90 cents for the needed shots of coffee. I would also like to point out that if they are charging for the increase in cup size, they are wasting their profit, because they double cupped our drinks. I won't return to San Francisco coffee, and if I do, I'll be buying the smallest cup they have, and requesting, and requesting shots of coffee. Pros: doesn't follow basic coffee expectations Cons: great place and great location more

Great place to Hangout 7/20/2005

The coffee is great and the music (most of the time) is cool. A must visit when going to Atlanta. Also the servers are nicer than the other SF coffeehouse. more
