The Station SF has strong coffee, comfortable chairs, and rock-solid wifi. If you don’t have time to wait in an eight-second line, there’s even a refrigerated case and self-checkout system near the entrance with small things to eat and drink. If you can spare the wait time, though, there’s a full breakfast and lunch menu. The only real drawback to The Station is the lack of outlets inside - most likely to dissuade people like you from camping out for too long.
