If you’re sick of the same old dingy desk, the same boring white walls and bland office ceiling, don’t fret – we’ve got the answers to your procrastination, work space boredom and caffeine deprivation problems.

Whether you’re writing essays, working on deadlines or you’ve been struck by the mother of all writers’ blocks, we’ve got the change of scenery you need to keep those brain cogs turning.

From acai bowls and big breakfasts to calming teas and function-inducing coffee, these cafes might just provide the fix you need to prevent your current desk (or makeshift couch-desk) from becoming your closest companion.
