6 Essential Coffee Shops in SoMa
There is certainly no shortage of coffee shops within San Francisco, and SoMa’s local joints are among the very best. Below, browse our list of must-try cafes set just moments from The Harrison’s front doorstep.
1. Sightglass Coffee
270 Seventh St.
Plenty of seating and its roasting area on display makes Sightglass Coffee stand out from the average shop. Stay and enjoy a cup of coffee on the first floor, or take up temporary residence while you work on a project upstairs.
2. Saint Frank Coffee
1081 Mission St.
Named for Saint Francis (the same person the city of San Francisco is named for), Saint Frank Coffee models its shop after the man as well. They approach coffee roasting and serving with the values of coffee, people and connection.
3. The Coffee Movement
1030 Washington St.
Clean, modern, beautiful and warm. The Coffee Movement is a fairly small coffee shop with no seating, so it’s more of a grab-and-go kind of place. What it lacks in square footage, it makes up for in flavor profiles.
4. Sextant Coffee Roasters
1415 Folsom St.
Founded by Ethiopian-born Kinani Ahmed, Sextant Coffee Roasters sources its coffee beans from Ethiopia, Kenya, Colombia and more, bringing unique flavors from around the globe to San Francisco. They roast all of their beans in San Francisco for freshness, quality control and signature taste.
5. Blue Bottle Coffee
66 Mint St.
A coffee chain with the quality and soul of a locals-only place, Blue Bottle Coffee serves espresso, single origin, and blends—along with a full breakfast and lunch menu, served daily from 6:30 am to 2:30 pm.
6. Philz Coffee
300 Folsom St.
We couldn’t talk about coffee shops in San Francisco without mentioning Philz Coffee now, could we? A cup of coffee “Philz Way”—medium sweet with cream—is a Bay Area staple.
