Tucked among lofts, warehouses, and art schools in the south of Market meets east of Mission part of San Francisco at Mariposa and Bryant is a large Starbucks swathed with leather and velvet seating, brick floors, purple posts and exposed ducts, and Pottery Barn like bathroom stalls – which as a whole makes me feel like I’m in a cool cafe in Portland or Seattle.
This is a good thing.
As a new T-mobile Hotspot convert (I held out as long as possible from paying for wireless) I anticipate spending much time working at Starbucks.
I have no idea how many of these long heavy red-curtained Starbucks dot the landscape but I sure which I could search by these attributes on their site as I truly feel “at home” here. It’s the perfect place to curl up with a book, as many do.
