Starbucks *

The chain's location in the Castro's got more character than your usual Starbucks. With rotating local art and a constant bear scene crowding outside, the baristas here are known for receiving the best tips in San Francisco.

    Neighborhood Bearbucks
    For years this Starbucks earned the nickname "Bear Bucks" for the crowd it attracted. After a recent remodel, there's less place to sit around and hang out (a shame really). But the staff here is super friendly (and mostly gay) and there's still a really nice feeling of community.
