A friend is coming into town tomorrow and while I have LOTS of ideas for meals, I am not too familiar with the coffee/cafe scene in the city. What are some diverse, laidback but fun (San Franciscan?) places to order some good coffee/warm drinks, find a comfortable seat and enjoy a good conversation for an hour or two (i.e. where we won't feel rushed). I'd be grateful for suggestions of places open after dinnertime (e.g. till 10 or 11) as well as during the day. Alcohol is not necessary, and easy parking is a plus.
She gets in tomorrow morning so I would appreciate some quick answers! Thanks in advance!
