America's Coolest Coffeehouses

Four Barrel: San Francisco

Jeremy Tooker, founder of this decidedly cool Mission District coffeehouse, went for a spare, industrial vibe to fit with the original wood trusses of the warehouse-like space. Mounted boars’ heads and local artwork adorn the white walls, while vinyl records provide the rockin’ soundtrack. But all that hipster-ness doesn’t distract the staff from making memorable coffee. They roast it by hand on a vintage German machine. The affogato is an intense espresso with stout ice cream made exclusively for Four Barrel by neighborhood shop Humphry Slocombe.

Local Knowledge: Communal tables without Wi-Fi or outlets encourage conversation, while bike racks outside let you put that caffeine jolt—and maple bacon donut—to work. —Kate Appleton
