Good bagels – Nice place to grab a bagel on the go. But I've also hung out there with a book. Friendly staff, not pushy. Hummus bagels are particularly good. Laid-back clientele.
Local mini-chain of coffeehouses dishes up java drinks and light bites. – In Short
The coffee is so strong you could cut it with a knife--and at this no-frills local stalwart, straight up is way more popular than any complicated barista coffee concoction. Regulars tend to linger, reading the paper and talking over steaming mugs and pastries. Low prices and a broken-in ambiance keep the wobbly chairs pretty full, but the crowd is neither intimidating or exclusive--just honest, caffeinated and wide-eyed.
All Day, All Night, All Right – One of the few coffeehouses open late, Muddy's is the "living room" Mission denizens (often) don't have -- albeit a living room full of coffee-swilling strangers.
There's a full gamut of coffee & espresso formations and every kind of Celestial Seasons' teabag ever created. Food is mostly carbo fare with lots of sweetened flour things. Calzones and piroshkis are the "meal" items but don't come here for the food ... Muddy's is the sunny place to read a left-behind newspaper, a chance to play chess with Richmond, a place to check e-mail and lose quarters to oldie video games (tho' I never like to sit near mechanical-music of Ms. Pac Man). Good local artists exhibit on walls. SFSU/CCSF'ers (26 MUNI just outside) meet to muddle through theorems as sidewalk politicos opine about crummy government in San Francisco, Central America, Eastern Europe ...
Muddy's. What a great Coffee House should be.
Coffee the way it should be... – It's strong, delicious, and served by properly Mission-infused employees who play all manners of music to ponder while your coffee is served up. Plenty of brown sugar
