    Grab a quick bite at South Park's staple for lunch, this breezy cafe uses mostly local, organic ingredients. Try French-influenced sandwiches and salads, or a rich brownie or pecan square. Read more

    Lovely little neighbourhood cafe on what feels like the only European square in town. Even nicer when they close the small parallel street and set up tables and chairs for their makeshift terrace.

    Cool little spot in South Park. If line is too long and all you want is a drip, you can grab a cup and drop amount in provided box. No need to wait for cashier.

    With South Park right outside, who needs wi-fi? Grab a sidewalk table and rest your eyes on some greenery at this delightful SOMA hideaway. Read more

    Their latte has this slightly sour after-taste that I don't really like... The coffee shop itself is nice though - great for meeting with friends or spending time by yourself reading or writing.

    Solid lunch spot with super friendly staff. All the salads and sandwiches are great, but the grilled veggie sandwich is my favorite.

    Get the pasta portofino salad and iced mocha, and hang out for a little while. The Gipsy Kings playing in the background will make up for there being no Internet.

    Great coffee, I am convinced they brew w/ cinnamon. Cash jar at register to bypass the line if you're just getting drip.

    Best coffee cake in town. They don't always have and it goes quick when they do. If you're special you will get to experience it. Good luck.

    Bring your own food to eat by the green table in the park. Their salads aren't as good as the setting.

    Nice espresso, I'd pass on the breakfast wrap: the cheese is good but the eggs and potatoes aren't seasoned

    A delicious retreat from painting. The lattes and sandwiches are to die for. Try one! (Or two)

    Lunch sandwiches, afternoon coffee or a after work beer- this place has it all, and a view of South Park.

    Despite the info on yelp, there's no wifi here. Come here to find people talking to each other and writing in and reading from actual books.

    Cozy or loud depending on time of day and weather, invariably authentic.

    No WiFi, few outlets, but plenty of spots to stay. Good view of South Park and sweet chai :)

    Sit at one of the green tables outside and make fun of all the webnerds sitting in the park...even though you're one yourself.
