As Quoted – I love this sweet cafe. They have tons of creative coffees. Think: turmeric and rose lattes, along with delicious yet simple toasts, like avocado and almond butter. The perfect place for a weekday meeting or leisurely weekend snack. I wouldn’t come here to get work done.
Jane – Ah, Jane. I probably come here a little too much. They have great coffee and the most delicious green juice smoothies. Great for meeting friends for lunch or breakfast. I’d recommend working here on a laptop for an hour, max as it’s always super busy.
Blue Bottle – This location is perfect for weekday meetings. It’s my go-to central spot. I love the light and airy vibe, and it’s very spacious. No WiFi, so come prepared if you’re here for a meeting. The oat milk latte is my go-to, and their Belgian waffles always catch my eye.
B. Patisserie – Another stop that’s on every San Francisco list, but for good reason. I love stopping here solo mid-week while the crowds are gone. They have surprisingly good coffee for a pastry shop. I’m usually trying to pry my eyes away from the banana croissants and chocolate chip cookies most of the time I spend inside this place. So. good. I also almost always bring these baked goods as a housewarming gift whenever I visit someone’s home while out of town. (Boyfriends family loves them!)
Blue Danube – I’ve loved this place forever! I came here all throughout college, and still come here to work on days that I work from “home”. The vibe is so cozy and calm. Food is delicious and the coffee is hot. I like their cheese plate, open-faced bagel, and green smoothies. Note: they charge a small fee for WiFi.
The Richfield – This whole in the wall has extravagant lattes and a few breakfast offerings. Definitely a grab-and-go place, as I think they have no more than two seats. They make a mean matcha latte. Any coffee snob would be impressed by this hidden gem.
Ashley’s Cafe – Coffee isn’t anything out of this world, but this neighborhood cafe has plenty of table space for getting work done and has free, fast WiFi.
Home – I know you’ve seen this ALL over Instagram. They have the most Insta-worthy latte’s and out-of-this-world toast concoctions. I’m talking unicorn lattes and “cereal and milk” toast. I’m pretty simple with my coffee order (no added sugar, thank you) BUT, I love getting work done here on a weekday. It’s usually fairly quiet mid-day, and they have lots of table space with great WiFi.
Dandelion Chocolate – I like to pop in here after dinner in the neighborhood and grab a bite of chocolate and an espresso.
Sightglass Coffee – A San Francisco institution.
Wrecking Ball – Perfect for a pre-brunch coffee on Union Street. Not a place for a meeting or work as its teeny tiny. Coffee snobs will be obsessed. Make sure to snap a picture in front of their adorable wallpaper – everyone does it!
Starbucks inside the Presidio – I know. I can’t believe *Starbucks* is on my coffee list, but hear me out! This location is hidden inside the Presidio, which makes it a great pitstop for weekend walks. They also have a lot of outside tables to enjoy when it’s warm out.
Equator Coffee at Fort Mason – They have delicious cashew milk latte’s made with Project Juice milk. I stop here on the weekends pre farmers market, and I know a lot of friends use this as a mid-walk pick-me-up while strolling along the bay.
La Marais Bakery – This yummy cafe will transport you to Paris. The service is incredibly friendly. Stop in for a quiet breakfast meeting over a nonfat latte. Oh! And they sell Bouchon Brownies here..
The Interval at Long Now – A coffee bar with a buzz, quite literally. They serve both coffee and cocktails at this bar. I love popping in after the farmers market on Sundays. Perfect spot for an afternoon date.
The Station – My office is nearby, so I fancy this spot at least a few times a week. One of the only places downtown that actually has oat milk! Too loud for a meeting or work spot, though.
Blue Bottle in the Ferry Building – I use this spot as a way to get a few steps in during the work day. Who doesn’t love popping into the Ferry Building, even as a local?! Never gets old.
Reveille Truck – Another stretch-my-legs stop. I love sipping an almond milk latte outside for some mid-day sunshine.
Red Door Coffee – Great place for a quick work meeting. They serve Four Barrel Coffee here.
Reveille – The best Reveille location! They have a full menu and great coffee drinks. A spacious place for laptop work.
Blue Bottle Kiosk – Home of the company’s first location! They also host fun coffee classes and tastings. Great for a weekend grab and go jo.
Ritual Coffee Roasters – A nice weekend grab and go spot. Lots of San Francisco hipster vibes here.
20th Century Cafe – Coffee cups the size of your head! This adorable little cafe makes you feel like you’re at the cutest tea party in town. Grab an open faced smoked salmon bagel while you’re there.
Saint Frank – I pop in here all the time on the weekends post Uforia Cycle classes. High end coffee and latte’s can be found here. Barista’s are damn good at what they do at Saint Frank. Not a place for laptop work, but a nice place for a mid day coffee date, if you’re lucky enough to find a seat.
The Mill – Delicious coffee drinks and even better toast. You must get the toast! The perfect spot for a first date.
