10 BEST Places for Matcha in the SF Bay Area

10 BEST Places for Matcha in the SF Bay Area

The matcha scene in the Bay looked very different 5 years ago, there were a handful of cafes serving matcha lattes but it was extremely difficult to find other matcha.

1. Stonemill matcha

Location

San Fransisco (Mission District)

Covid-19 Updates

Limited outdoor seating, Delivery, Takeout

Picture it. Traditional Japanese drinks, sweets, and treats that incorporate matcha in creative ways. To say that Stonemill Matcha is a matcha lover's paradise, is an understatement. The majority of their dishes are graced by a vibrant, deep green hue and showcases matcha's versatility in sweet and savory dishes. Stop by Stonewall Matcha for iced or hot matcha lattes, matcha desserts, and savory matcha dishes.

Urban Ritual Cafe is known for their innovative and undeniably creative drinks that span outside of matcha. David and his team have created delicious seasonal menu items that elevate Asian ingredients. The Matcha Toffee is a fan favorite, it's an Iced Matcha Latte topped off with crunchy toffee bits - you can even customize your drink with your milk preference and topping preference. I'm obsessed with Urban Ritual's Mango Sticky Rice, me being me, requested to top off this divine drink with a matcha shot. This is a secret hack and is not on their menu. This is one of my favorite matcha drinks in SF, it's soooo good I ordered it for a week straight.
