9 Great Cafes to Work in London


Apple Butter Cafe

If you ever find yourself needing a place to work in Central London, consider going to Apple Butter Cafe on Monmouth Street. It's a great place to have brunch with its extensive menu of comfort food, staple British breakfast dishes, and of course, great coffee. The space itself is pretty cozy too. With its rattan chairs and plush couches, you'll find that sitting inside this cafe is quite comfy, even for long hours. Fortunately, the wifi is pretty strong too. It's not exactly the fastest, but it's good enough for a couple of hours of work. As long as you don't download or upload anything, that is.

Artisan Coffee School

​​The Artisan Coffee School in West London, a fairly bustling neighborhood in London, is a great place for working all around. It's not just a good place for typing away on your laptop, but it's suitable for meeting with co-workers, colleagues, or even clients. The space is big enough to accommodate all sorts of customers and big parties, making it great for meetings and such. At the same time, you can always snag a cozy nook all to yourself too. Whether it's one or the other, you're sure to have a good time working here, especially in between bites of their scrumptious pastries.

Ginger & White

You'll find the incredibly sweet Ginger & White cafe in the fairly affluent Hampstead neighborhood, near the grand Victorian townhouses and lush green parks. Since it's a relatively peaceful part of the city, it's perfect for when you're outside working in London. But what's so sweet about this cozy cafe? The pies and pastries, of course! Their cheesecake and cookies are to die for—the perfect pops of sugar to help keep your energy up as you work all day. Though the place itself doesn't have a lot of indoor tables, the long one by the window is good enough!

Lumberjack Cafe

Much like Ginger & White, the long table by the window is the best part of Lumberjack Cafe for work. The shop itself is in Camberwell in South London, not too far from the famous St. Giles Church. The area is often lively, but it doesn't get so noisy that you'd easily get distracted when you work inside the cafe. As for its food, Lumberjack Cafe serves local delicacies and desserts made with ingredients straight from the English countryside. You can practically taste the provinces where the meats, milk, and cheese came from.

Ozone Coffee

Ozone Coffee is among the most popular cafes in London. Just how popular, you ask? Well, it has multiple locations throughout the city. Londoners love the roastery and can't get enough of their coffee. But as for the best location for working in London, it's undoubtedly their shop on Leonard Street in Shoreditch. The place may seem intimidating with its stark industrial-style space and fairly dark ambiance, but it's actually quite comfy here. Apart from their famous coffee, the cafe also offers big tables with benches or a long table by the window. Either is good for your laptop, hard drive, and other work tools.

Prufrock Coffee

Farringdon in Central London is known for its many cool and cozy cafes. If you thought that working in the UK is all about toiling away in the office, this area proves otherwise. You'll find that several people work in these shops, especially in Prufrock Coffee. This is a fairly spacious, Independent cafe with good coffee and even better food. While it's not the biggest coffee shop in the city, it's laid out in a way that never feels claustrophobic. What's even better is that their wifi is impressively strong, possibly even strong enough to stream a movie too!

Stir Coffee Brixton

It's easy to think that Stir Coffee Brixton in South London doesn't deserve to be on this list since it tends to be crowded and noisy. It's especially rowdy at lunchtime, with locals eating, chatting away, and of course, working here. So is it still worth going here when you need a place to do your job? Yes, it is! For one thing, the cafe has big tables that make for comfy desks. If you're lucky to go here when it's not crowded, you'll easily realize why people love hanging out here. There's also the food too. Sandwiches, croissants, and more make for great snacks while you work. What's not to love?

Vagabond

Which do you think will taste better before or as you work: a full English breakfast or a poached egg with avocado on sourdough? Well, whichever you go for, you'll still have a great time. This is exactly what you can get if you work in Vagabond N7 on Holloway Road. It's a great humble space that serves good food and provides fast wifi. Since it's not the most popular cafe in the city, it's also among the quieter spots on this list. Here, you can work and eat to your heart's content.

Workshop Coffee

Finally, there's Workshop Coffee on Mortimer Street in the bustling Marylebone area. Apart from their citywide famous coffee, the place is perfect for working outside of the office. It's not the biggest space but that's exactly why it's great for work. Once you get a table, you won't ever have to leave until your job is done. It helps that the cafe doesn't get too noisy too. Even what you'd expect to be its peak hours, most Londoners only pop in, get a coffee, and get out. As you work in the cafe, it'll just be you, your food, and the baristas. Not bad, right?
