Compton’s Coffee House
This small-ish coffee shop between Fillmore and Lower Pacific Heights checks all of the boxes of a reliable neighborhood caffeine hub/workspace. Seasonal house drinks like lavender or maple cinnamon lattes are on hand, plus standard strong espresso, cold brew, and drip coffee. There’s also wifi, pastries for sustenance, and a solid seating situation where you can hunker down on a laptop or scribble on a notebook for a few hours, or, more realistically, get distracted by the designer dogs walking down Fillmore Street.
