For those days when you just can’t bring yourself to go into the office today, or simply want a change of pace, here are some coffee shops in the Castro where you can set up camp in instead.

Weaver’s Coffee and Tea (Market Street and Noe Street)

Bright, modern, and directly connected to a gym, Weaver’s is the perfect place to go if you’re looking for an airy work environment and a place to workout after. Behind the coffee counter is a wall of cool, digital panels that plays videos all throughout the day that gives the space a very hip feel. If you want to sit down, whether it’s to chat with a friend or to do the mountain of work you’ve been neglecting, grab one of the high-top chairs by the windows—the view of Market Street provides the perfect backdrop for whatever you’re doing

Hearth Coffee Roasters (17th Street and Castro Street)

If you’re looking for a quiet, relaxing work environment, Hearth Coffee Roasters is the place to be. Even though it’s right in the bustling Castro district, it’s located on 17th Street, just off of the main drag, so that it’s peaceful enough for you to concentrate on whatever task is at hand. Even the décor is conducive to work: painted white and furnished in blonde wood, there isn’t much to distract you. To really get yourself into Zen mode, pair your coffee with one of Hearth’s organic, seasonal soups or sandwiches.

Réveille Coffee Co. (18th Street and Castro Street)

Castro seems to be full of trendy coffee shops, and Réveille is no exception. Perhaps a touch more industrial in design than Hearth, Réveille nonetheless offers an excellent space to work in. You can work inside at the communal bar-top table or at one of the individual tables along the wall, or, in nice weather, you can take advantage of the outdoor seating area right out front. Work or play, Réveille Coffee Co. is one of those places where hours can pass by without you ever noticing.
