Start-up cafes: SF favorites revealed

Jackson West’s got a lovely post on how wired cafes are replacing office space–and back bedrooms–as start-up starters. However, he’s failed to list two of my favorites– Canvas Gallery, where we started working on Rojo back in 2003 (I still go there–easy to park), and Coupa Cafe, on Ramona Street in Palo Alto, where everyone local seems to go.

    Hi Susan! I run one of these collaborative spaces, called Coworking.
    If you’re tired of working at Starbucks or fighting for a table at Ritual, you should drop by Coworking in San Francisco; we have back door access to a coffee shop and a cool space we work out of Mondays and Tuesdays. We run it as a co-op and membership model; someone gets a “slot” in the Coworking group, with a month to month commitment; when they leave, they find their replacement person. In this way we distribute the responsibility and make the overhead of running coworking low. Check out our web page at, or email me at for details.

    I love your blog Susan, but you did not post a picture of yourself. We feel more comfortable when we know who our webmistress is:)
