great tobacco, good conversation – Grant's has a great selection of cigars, cigarettes, and pipe tobacco. Even if they don't have the exact thing you're looking for, they will have something similar that will satisfy you. If you can't find tobacco to smoke in this shop that you like, then you're too damn picky. The "lounge" area is a great place to hang out and enjoy a smoke and converse with the crowd or just watch the scene on Market Street.
Best tobaccanist in San Francisco – I've been a customer of Grant's for over a year now. Their walk-in humidor selection is great, and they also carry a wide variety of pipes and pipe tobacco including their own blends dating back decades. The staff is the most knowledgable i've found anywhere. If you're a San Francisco native, you already know this place. If you're in town visiting you owe it to yourself to stop by, pick out a fine cigar and a chair and enjoy some of the colorful personalities that frequent this establishment.
Lousy – I called and asked if they had Mac Baren's Mixture. The guy who answered gave me a "yeah". I then wanted to confirm that it was "Scottish Mixture". He checked, and found out that in reality- they had NO Mac baren mixture of any kind (and only a few tins of other types of Mac Baren).
I almost went to the trouble of driving downtown on a rainy day to be disappointed after being told on the phone they had it in stock.
I was originally planning to buy the tobacco online at a discount, but wanted to give the local shop some business. They almost caused me a huge waste of time.
So after this experience, I will have no problem buying my supplies online. How I miss the recently closed Sherlock's Haven!!
