Four Barrel Coffee

Pin It Now!
Four Barrel Coffee is one of the many specialty coffee spots in San Francisco.  I find the drip coffee is a little sweeter ("grassy" tasting), and lighter than Ritual Roasters.  One of the differences between Four Barrel and the other coffee spots in San Francisco is the parklet.  Possibly one of the better parklets in the city.
Kouign Amann - #97 on 2012 7x7 SF's Top 100 Eats
First there was the croissant, then the morning bun, now the newest fad of French pastry to have with your coffee is the kouign amann.  Kouign Amann is pronounced "kween-a-mon".  This flaky pastry has layers of buttery dough and sprinkled sugar.  "Kouign" meaning cake and "Amann" meaning butter.    The kouign amann at Four Barrel is delicious. Its slightly dense bottom gives it a satisfying chewy texture.  A perfect combination the kouign amann has the fluffiness of a croissant plus the sweetness of a morning bun.
