Cafe International review image

Cafe International

You could host a rave inside this Lower Haight coffee spot—it’s that big. Cafe International has more low-key aspirations, of course, which is why there are worn-in couches, a seemingly infinite number of tables where you can relax and read (or silently contemplate quiet quitting), and a back garden with a very impressive mural. This place is the neighborhood’s living room (around since the 1980s), so hunker down with a friend, some coffee, and a bagel or sandwich. Just don’t forget that it’s cash-only.
