My Trip To San Francisco: Sightglass Coffee

Another place that Jodi's cousin Rebecca recommended for breakfast is Sightglass, a coffee shop that serves delicious treats. I like the place we went to: it looked like a processing plant rather than a coffee place, with its roasting and grinding machines, as well as the numerous bags of coffee beans laying there. It kind of gives a casual yet hipster atmosphere to the whole experience.

Sightglass is fairly big, with several seats downstairs and several tables upstairs where you can enjoy your treat surfing the web or working thanks to their free internet access. After placing our order, we waited at the bar to get it. It was ready in just few minutes, but I should mention two things: first, they do not have tea that is fairly odd these days. Second, they do not have any trays, so if you have a large order, it could be a problem. So, no tea. Not a problem for me as I am a coffee drinker, but definitely a problem for Jodi who finally opted for a hot chocolate that was not that great.

On my side, I got a double espresso that was a bit too bitter for my taste and came with a shot of water.

So, a bit of a miss on the beverage side, but not on the food side where we got some delicious treats. The first one was the Kouign Aman that I mentioned in my previous post about B Patisserie: so funny to see that croissant on steroids (think about croissant dough with more butter and sugar) served in so many places. This Kouign Aman was fantastic: crispy, flakey, buttery with a center delightfully caramelized.

The second was a valrhona chocolate chocolate croissant. Simply delicious.

Last was a flourless almond cake. Imagine that Jodi does not like almonds, but ate some of it. I guess it says it all.

We left full from Sightglass and we're looking forward for a good walk before our next meal. It is a great place that I recommend, although I am still not clear why they would not propose any tea...

Enjoy (I did)!
