    My go-to neighborhood cafe. The orange juice and fresh strawberry scones in the morning are amazing. You can't go wrong with the bagels or coffee, either.

    Plenty of outlets and coffee from Four Barrel and De La Paz. All of their soups, scones, muffins, and pies are made by hand, and when possible, all of the ingredients are organic and local. Read more

    The coffee is mediocre (go to Ritual or Blue Bottle up the block) but the food is good and the parklet outside is excellent. Favorite parklet in SF.

    The coffee is ok, the staff can be hit or miss. They don't offer refills on coffee. The best place to sit and work is upstairs.

    Beautiful new parklets installed recently. It's a great place to spend a morning drinking coffee and watching the terrible traffic patterns at Page & Octavia.

    Stop what you're doing and order the Pie. Whatever flavor (Apple most likely), it's easily some of THE BEST in town, and I don't say that lightly.
