Free Wifi for laptop

Is there a location in Frankfurt where I can get free Wifi for my laptop? Such as a Starbucks or other cafe?

Also, in what type of shops may I purchase a SIM card for my phone?

Thanks.

Yes, Starbucks everywhere but at the airports. I tried another coffee shop which showed that it offered free wifi (Balzac's I think) but it was only for 30 minutes and then you have to pay. Some (very few) of the Starbucks also limit the time. I think I saw 2 hours at one of them.

Try "Cookie in the Box", for unlimited free wifi, plus some of the best brownies and chocolate chip cookies in Frankfurt.

You can purchase a SIM card at any of the mobile phone shops: O2, Vodafone, E-Plus, blau, etc.

And electronics markets such as Saturn Hansa or Media Markt usually offer SIM cards as well. (There's a separate booth by one or several of the providers; it's not the shop itself that sells the SIM cards".

And you can buy a SIM card for "Aldi Talk" at the Aldi food discounter. (The service at Aldi Talk is terrible, but they have the best price-performance ratio for mobile internet.) There also is a Tchibo SIM card.
