Brisbane's Best Cafes to Work in

Alice Duffield

If you’re a student, freelancer or you work from home, you know how important it can be to mix up your environment for premium productivity. Although we have some brilliant coffee shops in Brisvegas, one downside is that easy access to Wi-Fi isn’t always a guarantee, so a little more consideration might be required. Here are some of Brisbane’s best cafés in which to work and get that change of scenery.

Did you know – Culture Trip now does bookable, small-group trips? Pick from authentic, immersive Epic Trips, compact and action-packed Mini Trips and sparkling, expansive Sailing Trips.


Nodo Donuts, Teneriffe

If you want to work where the snacks and drinks are worth writing home about, this is your place—particularly amazing because everything is gluten-free. Nodo is all about freshly baked doughnuts made with pure, naturally gluten-free ingredients, including some for the vegan worker bees. Try one with an iced coffee on almond milk while enjoying the free and plentiful Wi-Fi in this bright space with natural light, which fosters a clear mind. And, you can always take some doughnuts to-go for dinner.

The Library Cafe

This one couldn’t get any more convenient–it’s right on the river (which means great views); it’s accessible to one of the best libraries in Brisbane; they offer free, speedy Wi-Fi; and it’s right near major public transport! The Library Cafe is a part of the Queensland State Library, so resources galore for any study you might need to do!

Bitter Suite

Bitter Suite has all the necessary components of a good work day—free Wi-Fi, generous servings of fries, comfy chairs, fresh air, and, of course, a wine list for those rough ones. Better still, if you need a hit of sun to re-energise, it’s just around the corner from the riverside New Farm Park.

The Burrow

If you enjoy people watching while you work, anywhere at West End is where you want to be. The Burrow offers a comfortable set up with good food and drink on tap to keep you energised—and, of course, free Wi-Fi.

Volcanic Iceland Epic Trip

meet our Local Insider

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.

Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.

Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.

Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.

We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
