Working from a coffee shop
Now I mentioned that I typically work from many coffee shops and cafes. For the cost of a cup of coffee I can spend the morning – if not much of the afternoon – in a coffee shop without being hassled. That’s much cheaper than renting an office.
However, there are a few things you should be aware of if you do plan to work from a cafe during your day. Firstly, bring your charger. There’s nothing worse than getting all setup only to realize you’re sitting at 10% battery. It’s also important to realize that you are taking up a seat at the coffee shop. While I don’t feel guilty if I’m only in there for a few hours if I’ve spent some money, you need to make sure you are a paying customer if you’re going to take a seat from someone else.
Cafes near me with free wifi
Most cafes these days will have free wifi. You may need to pay for lunch or a coffee and ask for the code in order to get access but many just offer it up for free. If you’re looking for a cafe with wifi, use the search bar at the top of the site to specify cafe with wifi in the keywords and we will find the best results near you.
Some of the fan facourite coffee shop brands in the world
There are some amazing coffee shop brands that have done extremely well for themselves. Here are some of the readers’ favourites:

Organic and Fair Trade coffee shops
While it used to be quite difficult to find good organic and fair trade coffee shops, that’s not the case at all these days. Finding a great local fair trade or organic coffee shop near me is easier now than ever as more coffee companies are moving in this direction.
Vegan coffee shops
While coffee itself is vegan (as long as you use some sort of dairy-free milk) there are more and more vegan coffee shops appearing across many of the major and smaller cities. Use our web app if you’re looking for vegan coffee shops nearby.
Great things to eat at a coffee shop
There’s more to a coffee shop than just coffee, obviously. Many local cafes will serve a wide variety of sweets and some even a pretty robust lunch menu. My personal favourite is the go-to chicken wrap with a nice hot cup of bold coffee, black.
While your milage may vary, don’t discount a cafe or coffee shop thinking they don’t have great food – you can find some great hidden gems.
