Place to work and chill in SOMA?
I'm bringing the car to the shop tomorrow morning, and will need to kill a few hours. Is there a decent, reasonably quiet cafe South of Market where I can have an espresso, sit, read and work a little?
(I'd rather not Starbucks, if I can avoid it).
Where south of market ---
Blue Bottle Mint, you can often get a seat late morning, and I don't think anyone would kick you out.
Philz is on the other end of SOMA, the other Philz I've been to are good hang spots
I've come to like hotel lobbies - the St Regis and the W are nice
The Pub on the Mission Bay campus is really relaxed
