Caffeine Dreams: Haute 5 Coffee Houses in San Francisco

Coffee is my favorite hobby (read: addiction) and if you’re anything like me, then you can’t even begin to think about functioning without one (or three) cups of coffee. Cream. No sugar, thanks. Though there just happens to be a Starbucks on every corner in this city and in every corner of this planet, you don’t always have to settle for a Venti, over roasted Pike’s Place. Let this week’s Haute 5 Coffee Shops be your guide to a quality caffeine fix. With so many new artisan coffees and the shops that serve them on the rise, set your eyes on an extraordinary cup of Joe in a place with free Wi-Fi (not to mention delicious delectables), that will take your breath away. I don’t know about you, but I like my coffee extra haute.

Philz Coffee

With four locations in San Francisco, Philz isn’t just a caffeine fix; it’s a caffeine institution. The original location in the Mission is a fan favorite. With brightly colored walls, free Wi-Fi and concoctions like the Mint Mojito Iced Coffee, you’re sure to be entertained and buzzed all day. Extreme caffeine and custom blending of beans create a rich flavor making this cup of coffee unique. Philz calls each cup a cup of love. I call it a cup of liquid lighting. Hold on tight.  It’s a wild ride.

Philz Coffee is located at 3101 24th St.,  415.875.9370
