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.

Jane on Fillmore
Food for the Lululemon crowd, and for us too. Jane on Fillmore finely toes the line between healthy and delicious. If only they were open for dinner.
When you need a break from your cubicle in the Financial District, take solace in avocado toast or a salad from Mazarine.
