Philz coffee offers fresh pour overs where they doctor your coffee up all on their own. I will say I'm a bit of a coffee purist, and I like to know exactly what region my coffee came from, as I can typically identify the coffee...More

Really unique concept and good coffee. Friendly staff. Nice outdoor seating. Parking is limited. Parking lot entrance is on Middlefield. Loma Verde is only an exit.
