If you have followed my newsletter, you know my lists are highly curated, often updated and rival, if not exceed, those by popular publications here in the city (heck they even interview me for story ideas). I have editors, writers, VC’s, tech folks, engineers, single folks, couples, those new in town and more subscribe to it.

Whether it’s date spots in the city, trivia nights, or the best restaurants with bar seating, sit-down restaurants open past 10pm, apt-hunting guides, places to meet singles, my lists are highly coveted, and this particular one is the most requested of them all.

I have spent years compiling this list as I have worked from bars, cafes, restaurants, hotel lobbies, and public spaces in and around the city. I work outdoors, public spaces and client sites all over the city so I know where to duck in for a couple of hours anywhere in the city.

I am also meticulous when it comes to location scouting for clients for their photos whether it’s for dating profiles, lifestyle images or headshots.

Laptop Cafe Etiquette, Work Cafes; Laptop Friendly Places In San Francisco

Be nice, tip well, share space (don’t take up entire tables mean for groups), don’t take video calls or speakerphone calls, don’t set up monitors. Don’t spend all day at places. Some places on my list are more communal and allow for more time to be spent there (heck, you can probably host meetings, team updates etc. there).

If you are working in a crowded place with limited seats and especially indoors, stop wearing perfume, especially bad perfume and more so lots of perfume. If you do decide to wear perfume, be ready to be addressed by others.

For those looking on how to approach this touch subject, here is a template:

  • Hi there, I wanted to let you know that your perfume is quite strong and very distracting. Would you mind moving over to another seat please? 

I wouldn’t make it a scene, I would be very polite and address the person one off.
