5 of SF’s Best Coffee Shops for Digital Nomads
Sometimes it’s good to get out of the office — and sometimes you don’t even have an office to get out of. Either way, San Francisco has a ton of great spots to enjoy some delicious food and coffee and #NeverStopStartingUp.
While the seven MacBooks, iPads, and high-speed WiFi here at SCH are all yours to use whenever you stay with us, it’s also good to get out and explore the city. So here are some reliable spots — from quaint and cozy to large and collaboration-ready — to get online and get some work done.
While certain tables are reserved for lunch customers between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., Coffee Bar is very digital-nomad-friendly. They have plenty of power outlets and a nice patio at their Bryant Street location, so you can get to work and get some sun when the weather’s nice.
1890 Bryant Street
433 Kearny Street
101 Montgomery Street
A quaint cafe by day and a lovely wine bar by night, the aptly named Nook Cafe is a cozy spot to work in the morning or afternoon. And you may be tempted to return in the evening, too — Foodies Daily calls Nook “the perfect wine bar for romance.”
Location: 1500 Hyde Street
Comfy couches and chairs, great food, incredible art, and tons of space. Workshop Cafe isn’t messing around, folks. This is the place to go if you want to get stuff done. Both of their locations have meeting spaces of various sizes to accommodate almost any need. Work solo or bring your entire team. They’ve even got an app to make planning ahead super easy.
25 Spear Street
180 Montgomery Street
Another quaint and quiet place full of warm coffee and kind people. Matching Half is a local neighborhood business that specializes in quality coffees and fine foods. It’s a great spot for writing, relaxing, and escaping the busyness of the city.
Location: 1799 McAllister Street
Plenty of WiFi, tons of power outlets, and located smack in the middle of the Financial District, Mazarine is a favorite local spot to escape the office. Named after the first public library in France, the Bibliothèque Mazarine, the shop offers an artfully assembled collection of the best coffee and light fare.
Location: 720 Market Street
