The ambiance of a workspace does wonders on our productivity, mood, and even our physical health. For those who don’t work in an office, the freedom to choose a workspace where one can get all tasks done is both a blessing and a curse. It can be a challenge finding a space that’s the total package: comfortable, non-disruptive, and has a good wifi connection. For some, it also means a place that serves great coffee! If you find the atmosphere of a coffee shop inviting, here are ones you should definitely check out:
