With a communal vibe and long, wooden tables, you won't feel guilty about nabbing a solo spot and staying for a little longer than it takes for you to finish your soy latte here – the fresh flowers and stacked fruit and veg are also good for diffusing any pent-up pre-deadline stress.
As we ease into a post-lockdown world of loosened restrictions, with a spring in our steps and a new appreciation for wearing clothes with zippers, many of us are also navigating a new kind of working environment. Many people who had the privilege of working from home are continuing to do so, while many others have new, more flexible working arrangements.
Now that we can venture out, we've pulled together a list of excellent cafés in Sydney that make for good workspaces, and most importantly, fulfil that holy grail criteria among cafés: free (and decent) Wi-Fi. The longtime flexi-workers and freelancers among us have been in on these spots for a while, but for those who are still settling into the WFH life, here's where to start – for when you feel like a little change of scenery.
Just be mindful that cafés are adapting to life after lockdown themselves, and many are operating with time limits for seatings. Don't linger for hours with a single coffee, respect social distacing and capacity restrictions, and tip, if you can. Basically, just don't be a dick when dining out.
