If you’re looking for a cute coffee shop in London to work, here are 14 of the best cafes. Solid wifi, yummy food, and chilled vibes making them the perfect environment for work.
The list below is grouped by location – but my top 3 cafes in London are…
- Ship of Adventures (Dalston): for comfort, friendly vibes, and it’s pirate ship interiors. Funky AF. 🏴☠️
- Stour Space (Hackney): for a chilled spot on the river
- Brickwood (Clapham): for zero hassle & the best banana bread I’ve tasted.
If digital nomad pirates existed, this is where they’d go.
Jokes aside – this place is sick.
The ship interior makes it warm and cosy, it’s comfy, and there’s enough plug sockets. And drinks are cheap here.
Just check out the number of people working in the photo below.
Most likely because it’s comfy, light, and has lots of large tables for people to work.
The food’s delish too.
Part cafe, part art gallery – and sometimes part yoga studio too.
When events aren’t booked, you can use the light and airy room on top of the cafe for co-working. Otherwise it’s peaceful chilling on the river.
Hanging chairs in the window, comfy sofas, lots of plugs, swanky smoothies, brick walls… what more can you need?
A specific co-working cafe – with bottomless coffee and super hipster decor.
(If you’re down south, check out their sister branch in Brixton – further down this list)
Another popular co-working spot – with a terrace on the canal, and comfy sofas.
Smaller but light, airy and super cute. And tasty food – specialising in waffles.
Like these waffles, with zahtar-spiced halloumi, avocado, home-made spicy beans with tzatkiki & a fried egg.
Kitsch interior with comfy sofas by the window, wooden tables and lots of plug sockets.
A real hidden gem that’s so difficult to find, they say on their website: “try as you might, you’re never going to find this shop…but when you do find it, you won’t be disappointed”.
I love everything about this cafe – from the tasting menu of coffees (for indecisive, coffee-lovers like me) to the two free bliss balls that they offer via email when you login to the wifi. Talk about rewarding people for working here!
An Aussie cafe in London that’s super spacious with two floors and a garden, always lots of remote workers, and the best food (specifically, what they claim as the “best banana bread in London”).
Just up Brixton Hill – Stir is spacious, with two rooms; one light & airy, with long communal wooden tables & kitsch decorations. And a second edgier room at the back too.
Targeting digital nomads during the week – with private booths, charging sockets, and bottomless coffee, as well as co-working memberships. £20pp per week, or £40pp per month.
(If you’re looking for somewhere to work during the weekends, Canova Hall hosts a bottomless brunch so it may be slightly nosier on Saturdays/Sundays)
A cute coffee shop with a conservatory and lots of plants, if you want a bit of greenery and light.
Super close to Euston station – so it’s a great place to go if you’ve got a bit of time to kill while waiting for a train.
With long wooden tables, friendly staff, and amazing snacks – like peanut butter cookies – it’s easy to stay here for ages.
So there you have it! A list of 14 coffee shops for digital nomads or workers in London.
The list is always growing, with new places popping up all over the time – so please do let me know if you have other favourite coffee shops to work from in London. Just comment below!
