I received a discount code from Scout Mob for 50% off and the Prick "Rob" wouldn't let me use the discount on a cup of coffee and insisted that I buy something more expensive. He's just rude, I only wanted a cup of coffee and didn't want to buy a pound. He makes more money if I come buy a cup from him daily vs. buying a lb a making it at home!

Situated in a brick building very close to the intersection of Ponce de Leon and N. Highland Ave., San Francisco coffee has many roasts at their disposal, or dispersal, including a list of 4-5 daily special blends. Baristas know how to make a wonderfully crafted cappuccino and the small bistro tables are just big enough to bring your laptop. A fair amount of outdoor seating is available during the warmer months, and the music is never too loud or brash. Items such as vegan cakes, house-made biscotti, and chocolate confections complement the brewed-bean goodness. Some parking is available, but those in-the-know will park across the street in the church parking lot during non-towing times.

Pros: Superb Coffee

Cons: Limited seating if the Emory Kids are a-studyin'

I like the ambiance and coffee, but the loud rock music at 8AM is too much. The owner is into his own music preferences with no consideration of how his choices deep fry anyone who is trying to have conversation, read the paper, or do homework.

This is one of my favorite coffee shops. They have free wifi, so when the weather is nice I love sitting on the back patio and doing work. The coffee is great too.

I love going to San Francisco Coffee!! They do a fantastic job of making all of their all of their coffee and espresso drinks, and top them off with a fun leaf pattern in the foam.

I think I went here expecting a better experience than I got. The coffee was pretty good, as was the muffin I got with it, but I think that the cafe wasn't very comfortable. The seating was all the same inside, with no comfy couches or really any variety at all. To me, a coffee shop should be a good hangout spot, and this didn't seem like one to me.

The owner/proprietor of this place is the rudest person... Don't waste your time.
The people who work there are friendly and nice, but the guy who owns/runs the place is AWFUL.

i go here all the time to hang out with friends and sometimes to be alone and read a book or something. the coffee is tops and I really dig the atmosphere. Nice comfortable neighborhood coffeehouse without the pretentious BS. and the beans are roasted in the basement...which is pretty freakin' cool.

I am new to Atlanta, and am trying to find a coffee shop. I went to San Francisco Coffee for the fourth time today. This was sort of like a date. Things are progressing. I don't know what tipped me off. Someone in line ahead of me asked for a double shot of espresso in their latte. I thought, "That's strange, you shouldn't have to ask for a double shot of espresso, unless maybe they're buying an 8 oz?" I ordered two 20 oz. Americanos, having a friend with me. I haven't been buying 20 oz coffee, but I've been tired the last few days. Then, before I handed the guy in the orange shirt my money, I asked "How many shots in a 20 oz?" When he said "One, all of our drinks are made with one shot." I almost flipped. No wonder I've been tired. I work behind a counter myself. I understand tipping, I understand that nothing is really the guy in the orange shirts fault. But I can't believe that buying a large Americano, I'm paying not for more coffee, but for more water to water down the one measly shot of espresso they're giving me. There is a general rule of thumb: 8 oz: one shot. 12 oz, two shots. 16 oz, two to three shots. 20 oz, 3 shots. The price on the board seemed to follow this rule, increasing with oz size. I asked the barrister if I was buying water, and he said "Well, and the cup." He then hastened to add that they self-roasted the coffee, but a shot of that won't do me much good in a 20 oz cup of water. I spent over $7.00 on two Americanos, after paying .90 cents for the needed shots of coffee. I would also like to point out that if they are charging for the increase in cup size, they are wasting their profit, because they double cupped our drinks. I won't return to San Francisco coffee, and if I do, I'll be buying the smallest cup they have, requesting shots of coffee.

Pros: doesn't follow basic coffee expectations

Cons: could be my coffee home

San Francisco Coffee has a pretty solid product and great service. The staff is ready to help and provides great service going out of their way to get you just what you want. Just tried the frozen fruit/tea drink, they're very refreshing.

My preferred coffee house of choice. Hands down the best cup of drip brew in town. The staff is friendly, and refreshingly more layed back than the chain houses. I don't get promotional items rammed down my throat, just coffee. Their bakery items are great. I can't resist the scones. I have yet to buy their beans, so I can't comment on those. Overall great!

I loved this place. However the last time I went, the guy working was impolite and would not even speak to me. I ordered my coffee and muffin, he hands it to me and I said thank you, he did not say a word. I am sorry I was not dressed COOL enough for him. He should have been friendlier, for I have always treated the staff, at SF Coffee, with respect.

I've been taking care of my coffee jones here for over a year. SFCRCO sets the new standard in coffee flavor. Makes all the Starbucks look pale in comparison. My wife and I purchase a pound a week for home and stop by for a cup every chance we get. If you find yourself in line with the clueless at the other coffee houses and realize that your coffee needs a wake up call (sorry Caribou, the truth hurts!) make a mad dash over to San Francisco Roasting Co. You won't have to "settle" for boring coffee any more.
