Here’s the thing about freelancing/studenting/entrepreneuring: Every day is a struggle. Financially and professionally, sure, but we’re actually talking about location. The hard truth is that working from home in your sweats, day after day, is not the dream it’s cracked up to be. The cat walks across the keyboard and deletes your work. The siren call of Netflix beckons. It’s Wednesday and you realize you haven’t showered all week. (Just us?)
Time to get out of the house and function in the real world -- which is to say, time to settle into a coffee shop for the day. But how to choose? The qualifiers are legion: comfy seating, accessible outlets, and strong Wi-Fi. And duh, the coffee and snacks have to rise well above Starbucks status. We marched around the city, laptop in hand, settling into as many coffee shops around town as possible to suss out the ones most worth your remote working time.
