Piccino Coffee Bar
1001 Minnesota Street
San Francisco, CA 94107

Just when you thought San Francisco couldn’t get any more dog friendly, you stumble into Dogpatch. This up-and-coming neighborhood is chock-full of vibrant urban charm, hipsteresque hangout spots, and dog friendly vibes. And if there’s one thing urbanites love, it’s good coffee (right?). Luckily, Dogpatch has that covered.

Centrally located among traditional San Francisco-style homes, industrial warehouses, and local merchants and artisans, rests a happy yellow horse-stable-turned-coffee-bar. The smell of locally roasted coffee and fresh baked pastries wafts through the air as you stroll closer. An eclectic group of locals congregate outside, some exchanging small talk while others hurry off to begin their day, caffeine in hand. Either way, the strong sense of community (and coffee aroma) will surely draw you in.

Fido can hang outside by the water bowl and make some new friends while you order–just don’t forget to grab a freshly baked dog biscuit (or two) while you’re inside. Don’t let the line deter you either; the baristas here are quick. Before you know it, you’ll be reunited with your four-legged friend outside, coffee and biscuits in hand.

After you grab your double-extra-foam-almond-milk-latte (or straight espresso…whichever makes your coffee loving heart flutter), wander down Minnesota Street about a block and you’ll end up smack dab at the entrance to Esprit Park. Here, your dog can romp off-leash with his friends while you nibble on Piccino housemade granola.

Best for: morning dogs, coffee aficionados, urban strollers, dog treat connoisseurs
