Coffee can be a long working session’s best companion. And if you want to enjoy it in Paris then you’re in luck; there are plenty of places with good wifi, power outlets and lots of caffeine on tap. We pick some of the best places to set up your laptop.

1. Hubsy


Hubsy is a perfect workspace, located centrally in the 3rd arrondissement; its large windows bathe the space in light and overlook the lovely Musée des Arts et Métiers. Visitors are charged by the hour (it gets cheaper the longer you stay), during which they have access to unlimited hot drinks and snacks, fast wifi, a multitude of power outlets, and even latte art. The service is the friendliest you’ll find in Paris, and the owners make a point to stay on a first-name basis with all their regulars.


L’Anticafé is a hybrid space where co-working meets drinking, snacking and even playing board games. You get charged for the time spent here, with free coffee thrown in, and that’s about it. The spirit of this place is all in the name; l’Anticafé wants you to feel at home while making connections with other people.

2. Café Lomi

Café Lomi is the place for top-notch coffee in the city. Located in the 18th arrondissement, this café hosts a team of skilled roasters as well as a roasting school (and online shop). These are some of the best baristas in the country: two of them are recent French champions in Latte Art and Coffee in Good Spirits, an innovative recipes championship. The free and fast wifi is another bonus.

3. Coworkshop

The original Coworkshop opened in June 2014, followed recently by a sibling space on the same street. In typical co-working spirit, they offer two deals: ‘residents’ can rent a space (with a set desk) by the month, or ‘nomads’ can float freely and engage by the hour. The meeting room will let you talk, and the awesome vintage phone cabin nearby is amazingly soundproof. But you might be more chatty after hours grabbing drinks with other nomad workers at the social events organized by the Coworkshop team. This workspace is also a block away from Canal St. Martin.

4. Gaîté Lyrique

The Gaîté Lyrique is a huge cultural space with different bars and coffee shops on each floor. Exhibitions, shows, video games, and cultural magazines create a friendly yet studious environment. Best of all? It’s free to get in. And you can sit here all day.
