    Great cafe, casual vibes. There's an outdoor location in the back that I would check out. Large proportions, so you don't need order a lot. (Follow Instagram @foodaholic_anonymous for food tips + pic)

    Atlas Cafe, in the Mission District of San Francisco, has found a way to combine yams, pickled red onions & feta cheese in a way that they can cohabit a toasted baguette without provoking a civil war. Read more

    Laid-back vibe with a mix of work and social. do as you wish. no one will mind. you'll see folks on laptops (mostly Mac), biz meetings, people reading actual books and magazines, and just hanging out.

    unpretentious and pretty close to perfect: stumptown coffee, dynamo donuts, anthony's cookies, patio, wifi, bazillions of sandwiches under $10, reasonable hours, live music, beer, magazines, etc...

    If you're looking for something with a kick, the Spicy Ginger Lemonade has your name on it. For those who like to play it a little safer, try The Dirty Bunny - it's the lemonade + iced tea.

    The 20th Street corridor may have exploded in 2013/14 but Atlas still thrives as a true neighborhood establishment. The back patio, the classic tuna sandwich, the reading rack; don’t pass this up.

    A perfect balance of everything I like in a coffee shop. They take coffee seriously, the music is good, the food is good, and there are comfortable places to read

    Sangria and asparagus sandwiches are here for the summer! Outlets inside by the corner, but if you're here Sunday you may have to move to make room for the folk band!

    A solid assortment of baked goods and a good list of salads/ sandwiches. The free wifi and the patio are obviously the highlights of this coffee shop! 👩🏼‍💻☀️

    Live music and a spacious patio make for an awesome place to work/read/hang on a sunny day. Stumptown coffee! Try their half-beer half-lemonade drinks.

    Best tuna sandwich I've ever had. The tongol tuna uniquely (& expertly) includes currants, epazote and toasted pecans & is accompanied by seaweed. Yuuuum.

    Coffee, bagels, sandwiches and salads are great here. I like the pesto pizza and portobello sandwich. There's a small outdoor seating area in the back.

    There's no way to eat all of your salad without consuming the paper (lining the basket) along with it. The dressing soaks it and bits tear off into your food. Order the Yam sandwich instead.

    Stumptown beans, but with sightglass across the street, can't imagine getting coffee here. Food is so-so, but I hear the trout bagel is really good.

    Great cafe but a little slow. Just had to leave to catch my train after waiting 15 mins for a bagel... There was only one person making food and he had about 6 sandwiches to make ahead of me.

    The golden beet sandwich is worth the wait. The crispy grilled patty bits are the best.

    This place is best in the morning - get a French press and kick the homeless guy off the couch so you can do a crossword with your boo thang.
