Café Life San Francisco
A Guidebook to the City’s Neighborhood Cafés
Joe Wolff; photography by Roger Paperno

published 2012 • 7” x 7” • 224 pages • full-color photos • maps
ISBN 9781566568470 • paperback • $20.00

"It's not as if one needs another reason to visit the magical City by the Bay, but Wolff and Paperno (coauthors, Café Life Rome) provide a delectable impetus...What makes this such an inviting guide are the interviews with café owners that provide in-depth background on the establishments and neighborhoods. It is a joy to read and an essential purchase for anyone planning a trip to or living in San Francisco."
Library Journal

Superbly photographed, this book showcases San Francisco’s unique and tasteful cafes

San Francisco, nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the San Francisco Bay, is one of the best cities in the world for finding a fine neighborhood café to sit down in with a notebook (or a netbook) and a steaming mocha and artisan pastry. Explore all the neighborhoods of San Francisco—from the Mission to North Beach, from downtown to just north of the city, over the Golden Gate Bridge into Marin—through its homegrown cafés. Wolff and Paperno have been highly praised for their guides to café life: Wolff, for his portraits of the owners whose creative visions have made these unique places; Paperno, for his “richly evocative” photographs (Chicago Tribune). In this guide, Wolff and Paperno turn to the vital café life of their own beloved Northern Californian city, a place that, with its emphasis on the local, the organic, and the sustainable, has been teaching the rest of us how to eat and drink for a long time.

Author Joe Wolff and photographer Roger Paperno collaborated on three Café Life guides—Rome, Florence, and Venice.
