Cool Cafes to Work From Home
07 November 2017
The best part about working remotely is the ability to do it anytime, from anywhere with high-speed internet access. The downside: Getting cagey after you’ve been staring at the same walls – and people – all day long. Sometimes, you’ve just gotta get out of the house to be productive doing your work-from-home thing. Fortunately, London has plenty of cool cafes right outside your front door.
Timberyard: Covent Garden Station
The remote working crowd isn’t just tolerated at Timberyard UK; you’re actually encouraged to come into work and play as long as you want. And you’ll have plenty of refreshments to fuel your day – from filter coffees and specialty teas to Croque Monsieur and Goat Cheese & Chutney Sandwiches. Grab a seat in one of the overstuffed armchairs, plug in, and get to it.

There are a few essentials freelancers look for in a quality working café: Comfy seating, speedy WiFi, and outlets galore. Bean & Hop delivers on all of them.

Plus, With the Bean & Hop Loyalty App, you can get your first coffee free and earn points toward future cups of Joe.
Look Mum, No Hands: Old Street Station
This hip café deserves a visit for the name alone – but once you’re there, you’ll be hooked on other features. Look Mum, No Hands offers free Wifi, with power outlets around the comfortable sofas in the seating area. The breakfast menu is expansive, with both large dishes and smaller snacks.
