7 Coffee Shops for Working Remote


updated august 2019

When it comes to working remotely, all coffee shops are certainly not created equal. Sometimes the coffee can be divine, but the space is too small or the WIFI is lacking if not nonexistent. Here are our favorite places to put our heads down and get some work done. Oh—and the coffee is pretty great too.

Nestled in the Harwood District, this cozy coffee shop gives us all the feels (especially when the temperatures dip a little). It’s dim lighting and chill atmosphere gets us in a totally focused mood that allows us to tackle our to-do list.

This Highland Park gem is always bustling with both businessmen and women making their way to and from meetings and those fresh off of a workout (in beautiful workout clothes might we add). If you don’t have a computer you are free to sit and work anywhere, however, those with laptops are kindly asked to work outside of upstairs.

Needing a quick place to get some work done that is both near downtown and the Dallas Tollway? This adorable spot has been attracting the work-from-home types for years and years. Those who have yet to try their avocado toast definitely need to add that to their to do list too! They also now have locations in Downtown and at The Crescent, but for doing work, the Oak Lawn location is still our favorite!

This is the newest coffee spot to make the list and it celebrates Viennese-style java. Located inside The Adolphus hotel, this entire property is sophisticated and regal and elevates your morning cup. Might we suggest this as the place to meet an out of towner for a meeting?

The new Katy luxury apartment complex in Victory Park might seem like an odd place for us to recommend you go work. However, they transformed their extra space next to the lobby, into a beautiful minimalist coffee shop, with several tables to work. We love the tranquillity and the fact that it’s a bit of a hidden gem, so you can expect to not be squished in between two other people working too.

This East Dallas gem wins because it has the most beautiful interior that is just oozing with natural light. Not only that but there is lots of space to spread out and get work done. And whether you like your coffee hot or iced, the baristas are serving it to you fast and friendly. Also, the open-til-midnight-every-day-of-the-week is great for those who need to work late!

Hipster and oozing of Austin vibes, this laid back and eclectic coffee shop is a total hidden gem. Although its in one of the most known and central neighborhoods, Uptown, it often flies under the radar. Located in a house within State Allen, just a few steps from Whole Foods, you’ll find a mix of workspaces and great organic coffee to go along with!
