Those who use the site's "Hot Posts" feature to pull up each day's new postings from the message boards would have caught a enthusiastic post in an old archived thread about breakfast in SF. I'm reposting it here at the top of the board to call attention to it. More comments on Philz?
"Philz makes the best drip coffee I've had anywhere. (in the Mission - 24th St. at Folsom, SF) He makes each cup fresh (from whole beans to steaming cup in five minutes), he adds a little of his special spice to some of the selections...it's a great scene and Phil & Co. will unfortunately spoil you for coffee elsewhere. I have never felt the need to try their espresso, cappucino, etc because the regular drip coffee is so perfect. The baked goods are a 1/2 cut above run of the mill but Tartine is only about 10 blocks away!"
