If you live in North Beach, Beacon is a great coffee shop for getting work done. It has adequate seating, good wifi (you’ll just need to buy something every once in a while), and a fair number of plugs. The food is good, too - provided you want something light like a bagel or some yogurt with granola. You can choose to sit at the bar facing the large window, or snag a table away from the distractions of the outdoors, if you can’t bear to watch the adventures of people who don’t currently have to work.
