San Francisco Coffee House Rules Target 'Annoying Hipsters'

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) - A San Francisco coffee house has taken a new approach to the standard proclamation to customers about reserving the right to refuse service or the 'no shirt, no shoes,' admonition.

Four Barrel Coffee, located in the Mission District on the 300 block of Valencia, has a back alley window where customers can get their brew, relax and chat. However, since the Caledonia St. alley is in the middle of a residential area, according to a report in SFist, Four Barrel has a unique set of rules about being respectful of neighbors.

In addition to common courtesy reminders such as keeping the alley free of trash and keeping voices down, Four Barrel warns customers to refrain from 'annoying hipster topics' or talking about "who you f-----d last night."

"You shouldn't do that anyhow, but our neighbors actually can hear you," the warning continues.

Commenters on the SFist site pointed out the hipster reference could easily fall on Four Barrel itself or any other high-priced, gourmet, artisan coffee house.
