Whether you work remotely or simply prefer to check your email in a bustling, laptop-friendly public space, there are times when a clean and welcoming neighborhood café is just what the doctor ordered.
But the constant hunt for a workable coffee shop can be tiring and time-consuming, especially in work situations when you’re running out of steam and desperately need a place to concentrate and also unwind.
There are a lot of questions to answer before you can sit down and settle in somewhere: How’s the Wi-Fi? What’s the vibe like? Is the coffee strong and the food delicious? Would pulling out a laptop and spending a few hours parked at one table be a gross impropriety?
Freelancers, digital nomads, tech entrepreneurs, remote employees and weekend email warriors alike, fret no more—we put together a list of the 10 best cafés for working in West Palm Beach.
You can’t talk about coffee shops or cafés in West Palm Beach without mentioning Subculture, the undisputed crowd favorite and a natural place to plug in. All walks of life gather at Subculture Coffee and The Annex, its attached eatery, to meet, work, play and chat. Subculture is everything you’d want in a neighborhood coffee shop: friendly-hip vibe, a smattering of cool locals, lots of laptop space (both indoors and outdoors in the mural-covered alley) and of course, one memorable cup of coffee. With all that and the smell of carefully selected beans roasting in-house in small batches, it’s easy to stay and linger here amidst the steampunk-ish décor.
