BERNAL HEIGHTS: Tierra Mia Coffee

Tierra Mia has a friendly staff and a warm interior to match. The Mexican-inspired pastries and coffee are unique (we love the iced horchata latte) and perfect for sipping on while you work. // 3188 Mission Street (Bernal Heights), tierramiacoffee.com


CASTRO: Hearth Coffee Roasters

HAIGHT: Flywheel Coffee Roasters

What to order: Nitro cold brew

The large space and abundance of outlets at Flywheel is perfect for anyone with a long day ahead. There's even a small back patio to soak in some sunlight, or walk to nearby Golden Gate Park for an afternoon break. // 672 Stanyan Street (Haight), facebook.com/Flywheel-Coffee-Roaster



HAYES VALLEY: Artís Coffee

What to order: Iced chai

Artis is a new addition to the neighborhood, and a necessary one for those who need a place to work. The tables are large and spread out, so don't feel shy about busting out your laptop out or taking a phone call. // 537 Octavia Street (Hayes Valley), artiscoffee.com


MARINA: Chestnut Street Coffee Roastery

What to order: Breakfast sandwich

There's always an open seat at this Marina roastery, making it the perfect spot for an impromptu work session at any time of day. The staff is quick to recognize regulars, and pretty soon they'll be welcoming you by name. // 2331 Chestnut Street (Marina), chestnutshop.com/coffee_roastery


MISSION: Stanza Coffee

What to order: An espresso

While it may appear crowded, this Mission pot is actually very organized, and you'll quickly receive your coffee order as you find a table to work. On a sunny day, the patio is ideal, with local art and couches for a mid-day nap if necessary. // 3126 16th Street (Mission), facebook.com/stanzasf


NORTH BEACH: Réveille Coffee Co.

What to order: Egg sandwich

From its location on Columbus Avenue, Reveille is close enough to downtown, Chinatown, and North Beach to take any meetings. The long tables and white space provide a clean atmosphere while you work. // 200 Columbus Avenue (North Beach), reveillecoffee.com


NOB HILL: Contraband Coffee Bar

What to order: The Iced Separator

The large windows at Contraband Coffee Bar mean lots of natural light (to keep you awake), while the middle bar table is a prime location to work alone or in a group. // 1415 Larkin Street (Nob Hill), contrabandcoffeebar.com


PAC HEIGHTS: Jane on Fillmore

What to order: Gluten-free quinoa bread

The chevron-patterned tables and cozy upstairs make this a popular neighborhood café all day long. On weekends, it gets pretty busy; get there early and snag a corner table in the front and set up shop. // 2123 Fillmore Street (Pac Heights), jane-sanfrancisco.com


RICHMOND: Fifty/Fifty Coffee & Tea

What to order: Lavender Earl Grey latte

The unique drink offerings (some of which include boba) coupled with stable WiFi are a no-brainer. They even serve Dynamo Doughnuts for those in need of sweet, sweet sustenance. // 3157 Geary Street (Richmond), fiftyfiftysf.com


RUSSIAN HILL: Saint Frank Coffee

What to order: Macadamia almond milk latte

Although it looks small, the cavernous ceilings and modern architecture at Saint Frank make it feel much bigger. On the weekends, they're one of the busiest spots around, which is why they offer WiFi on weekdays only. // 2340 Polk Street (Russian Hill), saintfrankcoffee.com


SOMA: Red Door Coffee

What to order: Cappuccino

Red Door has multiple locations, but the coffee shop tucked inside the 111 Minna art gallery is the best. There are two large rooms to work in with lots of solo and group tables. You can even work at the bar if you like—it's closest to the coffee. // 111 Minna Street (SoMa), reddoorcoffeesf.com


SUNSET: Andytown Coffee Roasters

This is the perfect spot to get some work done while sipping on fabulous coffee. When you're done, spend the afternoon at the beach. // 3655 Lawton Street (Sunset), andytownsf.com


WESTERN ADDITION: Bean Bag Café

What to order: A savory or sweet crepe

This is one of the most versatile cafes to work from, offering everything from coffee to burritos. If you find yourself working into the evening, $3 beers during happy hour are guaranteed to take the edge off. // 601 Divisadero Street (Western Addition), beanbagcafesf.com
