    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

    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.

    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.

    The only reason to go here is to eat in the park. But you don't have to go here to do that. So you should go somewhere else. Unless you like waiting in line. Then this is a really good spot.

    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

    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.

    Caffe Centro runs an express window that is sometimes (not always) faster than standing in line indoors. Try the counter panini when you're in a hurry.

    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.

    Best bagels in SoMA! Some how the cream cheese stays solid and cool on a toasted bagel. Perfect! You should try it :)

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

    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.

    Everything is delish! the black bean salad w/ tuna and the white cheddar pesto counder sando are my favs right now!

    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.

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

    2 egg breakfasts are available on Saturday morning. The Sicilian (poached eggs on crusty bread) is lovely.

    I recommend the veggie sando! I think it's the tastiest one they have and I'm not even a vegetarian

    Their coffee doesn't taste like they love it. Actually it doesn't taste good at all.
