Indoors at the lower level of the S. F. Shopping Centre, at the Powell St. BART exit. Several tables and plenty of counterspace. Served large and hot with a pale crema and meek, flat flavor that's disappointing for a local roaster. [CLOSED - As of February 2004, this location appears to have shut down. Reopened as Starbucks: 11/06.]
