Workshop Cafe in San Francisco's Financial District is a quirky workspace that provides businesspeople a quiet, professional, and inexpensive place to work. Workshop Cafe is a welcome alternative from crowded and chaotic coffee shops, while offering all the same amenities and more.

The Workshop

Fast WiFi, printing and scanning capabilities, plentiful outlets, extra chargers, and an on-site cafe leave little to be desired. With all kind of seating options (think booths, rolly chairs, tall tables, and small tables) even Goldilocks would be able to find a work environment that’s just right. The front lounge and patio spaces are always free to use, but for $2-$3/hr you gain access to the larger back rooms and private spaces. Don't worry, paying won't slow you down because you can pay completely through their mobile app.


The Cafe

The cafe sells pastries, sandwiches and wraps, salads, snacks, and speciality coffee drinks (feat. Stumptown Coffee!) to keep you fueled and alert throughout the day. If you’re in a hurry, you can even use their mobile app to order and pick up your food when you arrive. Or if you’re trying to get your creative juices flowing, you can order beer and wine all day and take advantage of Happy Hour from 5 - 7 p.m.


The Spaces

Workshop Cafe has a mix of public, semi-private and private spaces perfect for everything from solo work to hosting a brainstorm or giving a presentation. You can use the cafe's food and drinks for your guests, or you can use an outside caterer.
