Top Coffee Shops To Work From Home In South Florida

To work from home but outside of the house is a tricky proposition. Imagine talking to interested customers on your smartphone in a crowded cafe at a table in between two other people who are also talking on their phones loudly or perhaps listening quietly to your sensitive information. Imagine again walking into a cafe and there are no seats available and the line to order food is long because this cafe is very popular. Unfortunately in this scenario, you have to put your laptop down and open an application to see information that you would like to discuss with a prospective client that you are meeting soon. Here are five coffee shops located in South Florida that allow you to avoid the popular chain coffee houses and work unabated in comfort with the dessert or dish of your choice.

Sweet Times Cupcakes & Coffee
8530 S.W. 124th Ave., Suite 101
Miami, FL 33183
(305) 270-0300

There's something brewing in the suburbs and Sweet Times shows it in the form of delicious cupcakes and its own blended, made-to-order coffee. Only a half-mile from Bagel Express and a few minutes east of Chef Adrienne's, Sweet Times is hidden, "kitty corner" in a strip mall next to a Best Western Hotel and behind a Barnes & Noble and the Regal Kendall Village movie theaters. Customers who wish to work from home have plenty of space to set up shop and get comfortable to start on work while ordering a delicious confection and a hot cup of coffee to refresh the mind before exercising the brain.

Europa is a level above convenience store coffee stations with flavored creams and microwaveable foods. It opens early at 6 a.m. and stays open until 10 p.m. so a person has a wide range of time to do office work. Functional services like getting gas and a car wash are also available so it becomes a one-stop shop for the most basic but most important errands. There isn't a lot of space at the cafe but those who can get in fit in comfortably and can be expected to work quietly and comfortably until the end of the work day.

Pasion Del Cielo Coffee

For work-at-home people, the commute is everything and for those living in the suburbs, they don't need to waste time and gas in traffic when there are great coffee houses in the area. The Downtown Dadeland location offers comfortable seating for the self-employed and plenty of space along with a delicious variety of the company's own blend of coffees. The hours are consistent with local Starbucks (open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.) which allows people to plan their work around the peak hours of the location, i.e., when it's nice and quiet.

D.b.a./café serves dinner nightly from 5 p.m. but before that, the interested, self-employed worker can get cozy with its comfortable seating and grab a bite to eat with some coffee while pounding away at the keyboard and being productive. The theme is of a New York-style cafe so not only can people get work done but they also may have an opportunity to network with other businessmen and women while there.
