Review – Blue Bottle Coffee at SFMOMA
This weekend we went to the SFMOMA (San Francisco Museum of Modern Art) mainly to catch one of the last weeks of How Wine Became Modern Design + Wine 1976 to Now, which was really cool. Afterward we headed up to the fifth floor rooftop sculpture garden and café, which is a Blue Bottle Coffee café.
A sunny, blue-sky day, we had perfect weather for the rooftop sculpture garden, which has an indoor and outdoor space, joined by full-length glass walls. Blue Bottle serves their coffee in Heath Ceramics at this café, which makes the coffee feel and taste even more luxurious. My cappuccino was hot, sweet, and creamy. The desserts are “icing-on-the-cake.” We didn’t get one, but they are very tempting. Each dessert is based on a piece of art from SFMOMA’s permanent collection. From Mondrian, to Thiebaud, to Kahlo the desserts themselves are pieces of art. You have to see them, and you can here.
We had our coffee at an indoor table right next to the full length glass wall, with the warm sun shining through. Sculptures of all different kinds surrounded us. Food as art and art as food — it was a perfect afternoon.
