The Coffee Movement

This tiny coffee shop in Nob Hill is a destination, whether you live nearby or five neighborhoods away. It’s generally staffed by extroverts in beanies who nerd out over espresso, and make it a point to small-talk with you about your super cool t-shirt or weather patterns while you wait. There’s usually a line that snakes up the block, but it’s worth standing in it for their seasonally changing lattes alone, like vanilla lavender or ginger spice (they run you $4.50, a steal these days). There’s no inside seating, but they have a parklet out front.
