If drip is your thing, your best cup of coffee is at Philz, where more than 20 different secret blends—known only to founder Phil Jaber and his son Jacob—are individually filter-drip brewed and poured to your exact specifications.

The original Philz café on Folsom and 24th Street, which opened in 2003, has since been augmented with a half-dozen city locations and dozens more sprinkled throughout the Bay Area as well as L.A. and the East Coast. The formula remains the same: Walk up to the bar and the barista will help you choose a blend that they think you'll like, watch it being made, then add milk and sugar to taste.

Local favorite blends include nutty Jacob's Wonderbar, rich Mocha Tesora, and the ultra-strong Code 33, crafted for the SFPD. If you're not in the mood for drip coffee, the Mint Mojito—made with a generous amount of fresh mint leaves—is a cult classic.

A must-try when in the bay area. Everyone loves the mint mojito iced coffee for a reason so get one when it's warm! The store features a bit of a different lay out in how they accept their coffee orders so don't get thrown off if it's not the way you're used to ordering coffee! They'll usually take the order, you can choose to pay before or after, and then you approach the barista when they're ready and ask you to sample your drink to see if you're satisfied before you can head out with your drink! 


I first discovered Philz Coffee in the Mission District and fell in love with the shop immediately. They have a wide range of coffee selections and the baristas are always super helpful. So happy they opened locations in LA as well!
