NYC Coffee Shops Great for Working with WiFi & Outlets

I made a list of great laptop friendly coffee shops with free wifi divided by neighborhood. All these coffee shops have in common:

  • Free entrace. You only pay what you drink/eat.
  • Free WiFi.
  • Electrical outlets available.
  • You can stay as long as you want, up to closing time.

Hope you find one near you. This list is based on coffee shops that do have electrical outlets, to be able to charge your computer.

These coffee shops are also great for groups!

  • Gotan Tribeca
  • Grounded Coffee & Tea in West Village
  • Ace Hotel in Gramercy | Flatiron
  • Whynot Coffee in the Lower East
  • Ludlow Coffee Supply in the Lower East
  • Arlo Soho

Hopefully this list will help you out. I’d love to hear your feedback whether you have a good or bad experience, or if you have a great coffee shop with wifi and outlets not listed here ūüėČ

NewYorkerTips

Hi there :) I'm Jess and I came to NYC to pursue my dream and I feel I'm living it every day. New York is magical and you have to be open to everything because you never know who is sitting next to you on the subway or behind you in the line of the supermarket. I decided to create this blog about NYC because I realized how many powerful tips would have helped me if I knew them before coming to the city from someone who was living in NY! So I thought that it would be awesome to share with you some tips about New York from a New Yorker. I'm going to keep updating this blog so stay tuned :)
