“This is the BEST coffee in the city! We are total coffee snobs, and Philz can't be beat. It's a local chain and this Noe Valley location is right across the street from a local park. If you try to get into a Philz Coffee downtown you'll wait in line... at this location it's rare to wait more than 5 mins. It's a nice walk down 24th street, and takes about 10 mins from our guest suite. We highly recommend trying the Soooo Good and Philharmonic blends. Ask for cinnamon in the pour over cone, you won't be disappointed.”
