Réveille Coffee Co.

Copy Link

Reveille Coffee's second permanent location is the newest addition to the Castro's coffee corridor, and it brings with it a sleek and stylish look, streetside patio and hours and menu items that last through dinnertime.

Four Barrel Coffee

Copy Link

The newest Four Barrel outpost is now brewing in Portola, and this bare-bones garage kiosk sports a rustic redwood ceiling, an outdoor parklet and all the espresso goodness of the roaster's Valencia St. location (plus pastries from Neighbor).

Tierra Mia Coffee

Copy Link

SoCal-based coffee chain Tierra Mia made its Bay Area debut last summer with a spot lower Bernal Heights, and now they're caffeinating Oakland, too. Expect house-roasted, single-origin espresso drinks and Latin-inspired drinks like a horchata latte, plus pastries from the East Bay's Starter Bakery.

Sweetmue

Copy Link

Sweetmue's focus on infusing traditional French pastries with Asian ingredients like black sesame and green tea gives it special cache, and it's the only cafe in the city to carry Gimme! Coffee, too.

Peet's Coffee & Tea

Copy Link

Peets' fancy new Marina flagship takes its cues from the city's trendier coffee spots with a mix of granite counters, reclaimed wood and a living wall to rival the best of them.

Saint Frank

Copy Link

After establishing a much-loved pop-up at Public Bikes in South Park, Saint Frank moved into an airy new Russian Hill home where it now serves up seasonal coffees, pastries from the likes of Marla Bakery and Le Marais, and information on coffee bean origins and producers.

High Cotton Kitchen

Copy Link

Look for Sightglass coffee at High Cotton, a brand-new spot that comes as part of the Red Vic's new incarnation as Second Act Marketplace. Do it right by pairing your cup of joe with Beauty's Bagels and Meetinghouse biscuits in the morning, and a New Orleans and New Mexico menu at lunch.

Artis Coffee Roasters

Copy Link

Artís Coffee is a combination retail outlet and coffee shop that serves beans roasted live and on-demand, plus roasters, grinders, and brewing accessories for the armchair coffee enthusiast.

Linea Caffe

Copy Link

The deceptively tiny Linea Caffe pairs coffee impresario Andrew Barnett and Mission food legend Anthony Myint in a perfect storm of espresso drinks, fancy waffles, and high-end salads.

Trouble Coffee

Copy Link

Giulietta Carrelli of Trouble Coffee opened this microscopic Hunters Point location far from her Outer Sunset original, but it's got the same offerings of cinnamon toast, coconuts and Intelligentsia coffee that made her a viral Web star last month.

Libby Jane Cafe

Copy Link

Skip the line at Brenda's and go straight to Libby Jane for sweet potato coffee cake, cornmeal muffins, banana bread, and the much-loved cream biscuits, and wash it all down with a choice of New Orleans-style chicory coffee or Ritual coffee if you so desire.

Espressamente Illy Café

Copy Link

Espressamente Illy is the second SF cafe for the Italian coffee conglomerate, and features a Monoarabica pour-over bar with coffee brewed cup-by-cup using Chemex and Hario systems, plus signature latte flavors like lavender-mint and jasmine-vanilla.

Marla Bakery Kitchen Communal

Copy Link

A full Outer Richmond bakery is still in the works, but the Marla Bakery duo of Amy Brown (Nopa) and Joe Wolf (Wise Sons) couldn't wait: they've got a new pop-up window at their commercial kitchen complete with sweet and savory scones, pain au chocolat, bagels and more, plus Wrecking Ball coffee to wash it down.

Little Bee Bakery

Copy Link

Little Bee is a new Bernal bakery that doesn't just offer a mouthwatering selection of treats like chocolate sea salt, rosemary cornmeal and apple tartlets: there's also enough Four Barrel coffee to go around.

Cafe Terminus

Copy Link

Cafe Terminus is Dennis Leary's new spot, a sleek all-day café by day and cocktail den by night. Expect a rotating selection of house-baked pastries like muffins and coffee cake in the morning, plus java made with house-roasted beans.
