Go List: San Francisco

Slide 3 of 10

Blue Bottle Café

Just off of Mint Plaza, Blue Bottle Café owes its near-cultlike following to its freshly roasted beans and custom Japanese coffee siphon—a combination that produces San Francisco's most delicate, nuanced brews. The bright corner café also serves a seasonally changing breakfast menu with dishes like poached eggs with morels. We loved: Wood oven-fired brioche topped with a persimmon compote.
