Created by Phil Jaber in San Francisco’s vibrant Mission District, Philz has only had one goal in mind: to make the days of all those who came in better.
It all started in 1978 when Phil bought a convenience store in the heart of the Mission District. He treated his clients with kindness and appreciation, always paying attention to their needs. He knew that if you put people first, you’re not going to fail.
Phil mixed and checked the brews in his off-hours, seeking to produce a perfect cup of coffee. After 25 years of experimentation, Phil moved his kitchen table to the convenience store, and Philz Coffee was born. From the very first day, Philz was concerned with consistency and treatment, warmth, and connection.
This is what makes Philz feel like he’s at home. It’s not just about coffee, it’s about people.
Their team is their family at Philz. They love you to join them in building a culture of kindness, generosity, and connection — a place where everyone can be their true self. Phil loved experimenting with blends because they brought together different cultures and flavors. This love continues today, as their drinks continue to inspire new connections and possibilities.
Philz Walnut Creek is a prime spot. The coffee house looks a little small from the outside, but going in is another matter. This is a big spot. There are two full store living rooms. There’s a coffee bar on one side, a pastry table, a separate mobile order booth, and two large waiting benches. The second living room is for research, reading, meetings, etc. There’s so much illumination in this location that generates a “happy” atmosphere. From old rustic lamps to vintage pictures of Phil and his SF life on the walls, this place in Philz beats all of them.
They’re brewing every single cup at a time, making a perfect cup to fit every individual customer’s taste. You’re not going to find any lattes, cappuccinos, espressos, or pre-brews. Instead, you’ll find over 20 custom blends made from high-quality beans from around the world.
When you visit a store in Philz, you’ll be welcomed by one of their great and knowledgeable baristas who’s eager to help you find the perfect mix. As a full-service coffee shop, they take care of everything from grinding your beans to mixing your cream and sugar; making their drinks real “cups of love” as they like to be named. If you don’t have a choice, they recommend that you enjoy your first cup of “Philz Way”-medium sweet with cream. Here is Philz, their goal is to make people’s days better, and they can guarantee you that whatever way you’re getting your coffee, they’re going to make it great.
