Pavement Coffee House

Pavement Coffee House

Pavement Coffee House is a great place to get some work done as they have plenty of seating and a great coffee menu. Yelpers have credited this place with extremely sturdy tables which no... let's be honest... is a huge deal when you have a coffee and a laptop on the same surface. 

If you're looking for a bit to eat and want to mix it up, try the Tequila Sunrise bagel sandwich for a little spicy twist to a breakfast classic.

Wired Puppy

It is rare that a business' name can elicit an emotional response, but this one makes me laugh and then suddenly get stressed out. I'm into it. 

Intriguing nomenclature aside, Wired Puppy has great coffee and a secluded, tucked-away work area in the back that is great for shutting yourself off from distractions.

Barrington Coffee Roasting Company

This place has some awesome iced coffee, give it a shot. Also, this place is best served coming to work on your own, as most of the seating is designed for the independent worker bee, so maybe take your group study or coffee meeting elsewhere.

Flour Bakery

What's cool about Flour is that everything they make tastes good. What's even cooler about this location is the amount of seating - there are plenty of tables for solo or group work. 

Do yourself a favor and add a brownie to that coffee order - you're already working - you deserve it.
