This Potrero Hill standby opened on St. Patrick’s Day, 1989. Rather than fussy cuppings and snail’s-pace pour over, owner Roger Hillyard (and now his son, Chris) serve good old-fashioned drip coffee sourced from De La Paz on Mission and roasted in-house. In a city awash in white tile and oak, this spot is the epitome of a homey neighborhood coffeehouse. The former butcher shop is decked in local art and well-loved plants, with ample seating inside and at the parklet out front. In addition to coffee, Farley’s has earned a loyal following for its extensive selection of magazines, which spans hundreds of titles. The cafe doubles as a local community hub, hosting monthly exhibitions and a legendary costumed Pet Parade the Saturday before Halloween.
