Sure, there are a LOT of coffee shops in SF, but if you're gonna work remotely from one of them, you're gonna need it to have 1) caffeine, 2) free Wi-Fi, 3) power outlets, and 4) um, well, beer. We found 10 awesome ones that offer the complete campout package. Have at it, office-less hombres:
It's not near a whole lot honestly, but the coffee is designer, the beer is imported, the food includes stuff like the buttery kouign-amann (fancy French word for a cross between a croissant and a morning bun), and the layout includes both group tables and plug-rich rails. Check out the bar’s handy seating guide here before you go though -- most of the space is reserved for laptop warriors, but there are a handful of tables that don't allow laptop use during the lunch rush.
Best seat: Upstairs at the counter that overlooks the first floor -- there's easy access to an outlet up there, plus you can keep an eye on the line to time your coffee refills accordingly.
