    With plenty of outlets, an extensive breakfast and lunch menu (a breakfast burrito and BLAT are just a few choices), good coffee, AND beer and wine, there's really no reason to leave until they close. Read more

    Screw the coffee, they have one of the best pastry collections in the city here: the killer scones from Sandbox Bakery, and wonderful pastry from Starter Bakery. Don't miss the kouign amann, sinful.

    Good coffee, good food, good vibes. Grab a seat and get some work done or just enjoy the airy indoor space or outdoor patio. Definitely my favorite cafe to get some work done on a Sunday

    Home of stickered Apple computers, tech hoodies & really delicious coffee. Eavesdropping on your neighbor might include such topics as her hot, scandalous sex life.

    Probably my favorite coffee place in SF, and definitely in this area. Awesome atmosphere, brilliant coffee, loads of seating. Breakfasts are good too - get the yogurt & granola with extra fruit.

    Have the guys and behind the bar order something for you. I finally went away from a pure coffee drink and tried the Havana Latte. Awesome!

    Dark roast nitro brew tastes like a nice frosty guiness taken for an ashtray - wish it was light! Cool space, designated computer-free tables makes everyone feel at ease in this difficult wi-di era.

    This is definitely my favourite coffee shop in SF so far to do some work. It has lots of seatings, open area and comfortable deskspace. Also enjoyed their tea and tuna melt sandwich.

    First time and I'm already hooked! Big space, great vibe and delicious Salad! (Seriously though: I never -EVER- get excited about salads and this 'Kalifornia' one is absolutely delicious) 🙌🏽🥗

    Arguably the best working coffee shop in SF since The Summit closed. Good coffee, good food, great space, reasonable balancing of the needs of laptoppers and other patrons. Nice.

    Busy even on a Tuesday, CB is an airy spot to WFH, or to have some good coffee and eats that are about 75% better than they have to be. I mean... they have free WiFi. See also: outdoor seating.

    Even though I can easily make this at home, the avocado toast with boiled egg is delicious! As is the Havana coffee! Mmm.

    AWESOME spot for work. Plenty of outlets, staff is super friendly, wifi is pretty good. Chai is great—really spicy but enough sweetness too. Definitely coming back.

    Try the Havana latte! Also, make sure you pay attention to the 11:30-2 no laptop rule. Some tables are reserved for lunch guests. 2:01, and you're golden!

    Need a solid breakfast? the breakfast sandwiches are awesome, coffee strong and the granola/yogurt/fruit parfait is a good option. Afternoon time? Remember- this place has "bar" in its name!

    One of the best vibes in the city hands down. Amazing food, great staff, Wifi is good, seating has some restrictions, but not a deal breaker. 7.0/10

    They now have an enormous wood-fired pizza oven! The downside is it takes up a big portion of their outdoor seating. No bother, tho. They just expand to the sidewalk!

    Startup dude / laptop central. While not a bad place to work on your laptop, it does get very busy as the day progresses. On the upside, the food is great.

    They rent their space for parties and events. Super reasonable and now they have a wood burning oven for pizza to enjoy at your event, along with their food and drinks.

    Iced vanilla latte is seriously the best I've ever had. The environment is really nice, the perfect place to work for a few hours. Slowly becoming a regular.

    Very tasty non-sour coffee (they are an outlet of a roaster across the bay). Good for laptop-working, but if you don't have a Mac, be prepared to stand out.

    Can be difficult to find a 'laptop approved' table to work from, especially during lunch hours. Power outlets are a bit difficult to get a hold of as well.

    Vanilla bean latte was delicious. Smooth, flavorful. Personally, I could take it a tad less sweet. Yumm nevertheless!

    The space alone is worth a trip but get one of the lattes instead of drip. Be careful they can be quite sweet though.

    It feels like the first day of school trying to find a lunch table to sit at, except this time everyone is oblivious to you awkwardly sitting down next to them because they're on their MacBook.
