New CUPS Cafe: November Edition

Sweater weather is upon us and we can finally enjoy hot coffee drinks on the reg. Here are the new shops that launched in the last month. We’re pretty big fans.

New York

Rose&Basil (East Village)

Rose&Basil is the definition of a gem. Decked out in beautiful flowers and comfy couches, and featuring wonderful, healthy desserts (that don’t sacrifice anything for flavor), this new East Village joint’s charm is undeniable. On the beverage front, they feature a full menu of espresso drinks, as well as matcha, apple cider, and even a pumpkin latte, plus their signature rose latte.

RoastNCo (Forest Hills)

At RoastNCo they don’t just roast coffee beans — they also roast chicken! This unique rotisserie chicken and coffee joint also features soups, sandwiches, salads, smoothies, and more. But don’t worry, they take coffee seriously: they feature La Colombe.

San Francisco

The Family Room (Lower Nob Hill)

Pour over and cold brew are the name(s) of the game at The Family Room. We love the artsy vibe here! Plus, pick up some cool accessories.

Brew Bros (Nob Hill)

Fantastic coffee, fantastic sandwiches. Need we say more? This Nob Hill coffee shop also has cute decor, and is a great place to grab breakfast or have a meeting.

Coffee Mission (Mission)

Located right next to the BART, Coffee Mission is your new go-to shop on your way to work in the Mission. Stop in and get a great cup of coffee or even kombucha on tap. Doesn’t get more convenient (or delicious!) than this.

Farley’s (Potrero Hill) & Farley’s East (Oakland)

Farley’s is the definition of a community coffee shop. With initiatives such as their Annual Pet Parade and nonprofit of the month at each location, Farley’s takes being part of the community seriously, but in a fun way! They feature coffee that makes you want to stick around, and we hear the hot chocolate is pretty tasty as well.

Bernie’s (Noe Valley, Financial District & Castro)

Stop in for a cup of coffee or delicious chai, and stay for the warm and welcoming environment. Bernie’s has wonderful customer service and delicacies to boot. Plus, they don’t give you dirty looks if you stay and work for a while. We appreciate that.

Snow White Coffee (Piedmont)

What Snow White Coffee lacks in space it makes up in personality and killer coffee. The owner is the sole employee and he takes his duties seriously while being the life of the party. We also appreciate their use of locally roasted beans.


Revelator (Hillsborough Village)

With a “no frills, no fuss” policy, Revelator is the real deal if you are serious about your coffee. Sourcing beans seasonally, this shop lets you choose between purist favorites like pourover coffee, cappuccino, and more. They also feature snacks from local favorites and some of the friendliest baristas in town, in a minimalist, relaxing environment.

Honest Roasters (Franklin and 12 South)

Honest Roasters is hardcore about coffee. Roasting their beans in-house, they focus on pour over and espresso, and do it well. The staff is knowledgable about brews and roasts, and can help you find your perfect cup!

Govan’s Salon & Cafe (Gallatin)

Can you name another place that has great coffee, homemade flavored whipped cream, AND a full-service salon? Throw muffins and big, cozy couches into the mix, and Govan’s is starting to sound like the type of place where we could just stay forever.

The Red Bicycle (Germantown & Woodbine)

The Red Bicycle opened with one goal: to treat customers as family. Add on their killer coffee, serene ambience, and perfect crepes, and we have ourselves a winner. Added bonus: they have a perfect Cuban coffee.
