One of my favorite spots in San Francisco is the Heath Ceramics and Blue Bottle Cafe in the Mission. It combines two of my passions: coffee and good design. Instead of walking into a shop, you feel as if you walked into an artist's artfully curated home. But then if you look farther, you'll see their factory, where they produce their tile daily. Although most locals know of this spot, it feels like a hidden gem tucked away from commotion and chaos.
