Four Barrel: San Francisco

22 of 27

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
