I was running some errands and stopped by a new coffee place called Vega in SOMA. They serve Blue Bottle coffee and offer all the usual coffee drinks  – latte, cafe mocha, cafe au lait, espresso, cappuccino, etc. They also have a small display case for baked goods although when I got there it was pretty bare.

But the reason I came was to try the Macau Iced Coffee which is whole milk combined with a shot of Blue Bottle espresso, and sweetened with organic cane sugar syrup.

The stand felt similar to the Blue Bottle location in Hayes Valley albeit a bit larger space. There were a few people milling about who had ordered and were waiting. I ordered the Macau Iced Coffee and the guy goes, “I assume whole milk is ok with you?”. I hesitated a second before saying, “Can I actually get non-fat milk and I can pretend it’s whole milk!”

It cost $3.50 and delicious.

There’s actually two locations with the other one called Special Xtra.
