Top 5 venues to work from in San Francisco with free WiFi
In a city that is not at a loss for coffee shops or natural co-working environments, the problem isn’t finding a place, it’s choosing which location works best for you. Here’s a top 5 list of San Francisco locations to get you started in various neighborhoods, all equipped with your must-haves for working away from the office: coffee, free WiFi and a beer and wine menu.
Study in style at this contemporary patisserie in the Mission District. Open from 7a – 7p on most days, it’s a great place to pull up a chair in the sunny spot and whistle while you work. Sip Highwire coffee all morning, and reward yourself with a pinot noir at the end of your day. The only worrisome distraction with working here is the constant temptation of some of the best hand-crafted pastries in the city.
Hunker down for the day and stay for dinner and dessert too at this café and restaurant in Bernal Heights. With an atmosphere that’s modern and warm, you can start your day at 6am with coffee and enjoy the free wifi with your breakfast and lunch. Then at 5pm, the place flips into a full-service restaurant with local cuisines and a unique beer and wine selection. Like the offerings, but looking for a different neighborhood vibe? Check out their sister cafés, Dolores Park Café and Duboce Park Café.
Relax in North Beach at the most authentic Italian café in the city. With award-winning homemade tiramisu, cannoli and gelato, it’s no wonder why you would want to hurry to this location to enjoy your work or study day. Grab a table inside with a cup of Illy coffee, or enjoy a sidewalk table and absorb the feel of the entire neighborhood while you type away.
You can’t go wrong with a café on the beach. Soak up some sun in this Outer Sunset cafe on Ocean Beach. The food is worth craving and the coffee is served with latte art you almost don’t want to disturb with a sip. And these guys got it right with, ‘location, location, location,’ making it one place you won’t want to leave at the end of your workday.
Sicilian owners of this Potrero Hill café and wine bar have coffee prepared using machinery designed and built in Italy, grilled panini sandwiches and a unique Italian wine list. The food and drink menu at this location will make you feel like you woke up in Italy as you work the day away sipping espresso.
