If you are at the Ferry Building, this is a must-stop. They have the best latte ever and the most delicious blondie.

I had an espresso here twice. In both instances, the espresso was overly bitter. Vinegar to be more precise. This suggests a problem with the machine setting. Not an enjoyable coffee.
