Coffee and WiFi is what us “millennials” need to power through our work. If you are looking for great coffee-shop with ample space, enough outlets for you and co-working partner, and a great ambiance in Harlem and beyond check out the list below:

  • Commongood Harlem - One of the newest additions to Harlem and they put community and coffee at the center of everything. With an abundance of natural lighting, La Colombe draft latte, light bites, and a bomb playlist it is sure to become your new favorite. The owner, Karina, is also interested in utilizing her space for community events as well.

  • Beans & Barley - Restaurant Row has several coffee-shops, but this newcomer allows you to crank out some work over a nice soy latte but then celebrate your accomplishments with their full bar. The WiFi turns off at 6 pm, but hey we all need to disconnect at some time.

  • The Chipped Cup - This woman-owned coffee-shop located in the Hamilton Heights section of Harlem ALWAYS enough seats to plant your butt in and get the work done. Last time I was here I rocked out to a complete Michael Jackson playlist and damn near moon-walked across the floor (in my head!). They close at 8 pm every day which is a tad bit later than other coffee-shops Uptown, and we talk about the OUTDOOR GARDEN!!!!!

  • The Uptown Garrison - The Garrison opens everyday at 7am and offers a daytime menu that includes soups, sandwiches, coffee, and WiFi!  I can see this quickly becoming a go to spot for freelancers, students, and others during the day. Check out my dinner blog post about this Washington Heights establishment here.

  • ACP Coffee - Located near 135th and 7th avenue this another great locally owned coffee-shop with communal tables, avocado toast, and the perfect cup of joe.

    • 2286 7th Avenue, New York, NY 10030

  • The Boogie Down Grind Cafe - I recently visited the only specialty coffee shop in Hunts Points, Bronx and I love the sense of community. They host art shows, karaoke nights, and their baristas got a mean latte art game. I have mentioned many times I feel like people forget about The Bronx and there are amazing businesses YOU need to know about, and this is one of them.

Do you have a favorite coffee-shop in Harlem?
