There are only a few places we would happily sit around all day - a park bench with a nice view, a beach, or a movie theater that’s screening all of the Star Wars movies. Cafe St. Jorge is another one. This Porguese-style cafe on Mission serves Stumptown coffee and a menu that’s a mix of pastries like strawberry coffee cake and hot food (get the breakfast sandwich). They also have good wifi if you need to lug your computer in to get work done.
