5 best coffee shops with wi-fi in London

Each month, we’ll be asking our Worksnug Ambassadors to name their favourite laptop-friendly places in cities around the world. They’ll be sharing their favourite connected coffee shops, libraries and other public spaces. To start us off, our very own San Sharma shares his fab five.

  1. Google Campus
    Ambitious co-working and community project in the heart of East London’s ‘Tech City’. There’s a paid-for co-working space on its first and second floor, but you can work for free at the café in the basement, where wi-fi is free and really fast, refreshments locally and ethically-sourced and there are plenty of power sockets.

  2. Ray’s Jazz Café at Foyles
    Bookshop café in London’s West End. You won’t find a Kindle in Ray’s Jazz Café, but you will find lots of laptops and iPads, as mobile workers make the most of Ray’s free wi-fi and relaxed, no-pressure-to-leave attitude. Read full review
  3. Wellcome Collection Café
    Bright and futuristic candy-coloured café, a stone’s throw from London Euston railway station. Wi-Fi is free, but if you plan on staying long, prepare to pay your way in coffee. Read full review
  4. BFI Southbank
    The café at the British Film Institute on London’s cultural South Bank is buzzing with mobile workers. Wi-fi is fast and free and the space is comfortable for long spells of work and animated meetings – informal or professional. Read full review
  5. Monkey Bar
    Friendly neighbourhood café and deli in East London with plenty of power sockets – now serving booze! Read full review
