I have been to Philz in SF. It is indeed some of the best coffee i ever tasted. We're lucky to get it here in Palo Alto. I hope it opens soon.

We'll welcome Philz with open arms (or, rather, coffee cups)!

I just tried Philz coffee (Palo Alto location opened today) and it's very good! Phil was there himself - friendly guy.

I am from San Francisco. I know the Mayor of 24th Street San Francisco. I remember when his first shop was just a corner store. When Phil started his venture he would personally feed coffee out of a spoon to his special friends to get their commments and opinions. Fortunatley, I am one of those persons who sipped and experinced the best coffee on this hemisphere before he expanded in the Bay Area. Once you taste Philz Coffee you are addicted.

I recently visited Philz. I would really like to see him expand his range of cold drinks with a few smoothies/fruit drinks.
