San Francisco has so many great coffee shops that they could have their own King Arthur-style mythology built around them, and if that existed, Andytown would definitely have a seat at that Round Table. Aside from making perfect coffee, this spot has excellent soda-bread scones and a concoction called the Snowy Plover with espresso, sparkling water, and whipped cream that always leads to a big line going out the door on the weekends.
