Chances are, if you're riding Muni in the morning, you desperately need coffee. So, we've gone out of our way to make your life easier, by using SF Muni's map and our caffeine rolodex to plot out the best, closest coffee shop to every stop on Muni (that matters), replacing each stop name with the name of said caffeine-slinger. The only rule: all of the coffee shops had to be under a 10min walk away from their respective stop.

So without further ado, here's a blown-up version of our ultimate SF coffee shop map, complete with all of the places you should recharge at on your morning commute. And here're the deets on every single shop:

Beachside (Ocean Beach Muni Stop) // Judahlicious (Judah & Sunset) // Hollow (Judah & 19th) // Dash Cafe (Judah & 9th) // Wooly Pig Cafe (UCSF Parnassus) // Reverie Cafe (Carl & Cole) // Jumpin' Java Coffee House (Duboce & Noe) // Duboce Park Cafe (Duboce & Church) // Java Beach Cafe (SF Zoo) // New Taraval Cafe (Taraval & 22nd) // Greenhouse Cafe (West Portal) // Castro Coffee Company (Castro) // Thorough Bread and Pastry (Church) // Cafe St. Jorge (San Jose & Randall) // Cafe XO (Church & 30th) // Martha & Bros Coffee (Church & 24th) // Dolores Park Cafe (Church & 18th) // Cafe du Soleil (Duboce & Church) // MA-velous (Van Ness) // De La Paz Coffee Roasters (Civic Center) // Blue Bottle (Powell) // Workshop Cafe (Montgomery) // Left Coast Cafe (Folsom) // Crossroads Cafe (Brannan) // The Java House Restaurant (2nd & King) // The Creamery (4th & King) // Philz Coffee (Mission Rock) // Cafe 24 (UCSF Mission Bay) // Front Cafe (Mariposa) // Dogpatch Cafe (20th St) // Just For You Cafe (23rd St)

2. Beachside 4300 Judah St, San Francisco, CA 94122 (Outer Sunset)

From the same couple behind micro-batch-brewing Java Beach Cafe, Beachside is a church-pew'd, walnut-slabbed, creatively boozy coffee bar and kitchen set in what was once the downstairs saloon of a boarding house erected in 1908, a time when men were men, unless they were Irish. Or Italian.

9. New Taraval Cafe 1054 Taraval St, San Francisco, CA 94116 (Parkside)

Large portions, a social waitstaff, and curiously enough, freshly-cut fruit, are all highlights at this small diner with red booths in Parkside. The prices might strike you as unreasonably low, but the breakfast combo -- two eggs, two pieces of bacon or sausage, two pancakes or toast for $4.50 -- is an actual steal, and you should take advantage of it as many times as you can before management realizes the mistake they've made.
