It’s been two years since the start of the pandemic, and millions of people are still working from home. Love it or hate it, most people can’t deny that sometimes you need a change of scenery. Step into Bushwick’s plethora of cafes. It’s no secret that our neighborhood is a cafe mecca, but when it comes to getting work done, there are a few essentials that are absolutely necessary – primarily good WiFi. Here at Bushwick Daily, we’ve compiled a brief list of cafes where you can get your work done, get a change of scenery and support a local business. (Talk about being a multitasker!)

Every time you enter Nook, or even if you’re just passing by, there are all sorts of different scenes: old friends reuniting, someone working on their next screenplay, or a couple cozying up in the corner. .

For the coffee snobs

Nothing is more important to you than quality. These two coffees will give you the perfect midday pick-me-up.

Various coffee roasters

Some of us agree with Folgers, but some of us crave something a little more substantial. Varied coffee roasters make great quality coffee. What’s even better is that the location on Wyckoff Avenue is an ideal working environment. Grab your coffee at the counter, grab a table in Variety Coffee’s large space, and get to work. It may not be a scientific fact, but good coffee improves your productivity.

Site: 146 Wyckoff Ave.

Hours: Every day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Kave Espresso Bar

Walking down that fun, green hallway always means you’re about to get something good.
