This Valencia location is anchored by great coffee delivered by a great espresso machine. (Synesso)
Located in the cool and hip Mission district, what is there not to like? Great coffee, great staff, hip location, and a large area to sit. Whether you are there to enjoy coffee, do some research, or work a deal with a friend or foe, Ritual gives you a great start.
Even though I know SF is cold most of the time, Ritual on Valencia always seem colder the deeper one goes into the shop. To me, that is just an incentive to have another coffee drink!
