Brisbane's Best Cafes to Work in

Updated: 19 July 2017
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.

Nodo

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.

Plum Tucker

This little inner north-west gem is perfect for those mornings when fresh air is necessary to clear your head, but you also need to get work done and can’t realistically do that in the middle of a park! This place offers great service, it’s never so packed that you feel pressured to give up your seat, and there’s free Wi-Fi.

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.
