There are a lot of great coffee shops in Fishtown, but most of them are tiny places that fill up quickly. Gryphon Cafe, a larger shop hidden on an out-of-the-way corner on Front Street, always has big, open tables for you to work at. In addition to coffee, they also have things like lavender lemonade and a ginger-hibiscus cooler, plus a full food menu.
