The Best Cafes To Get Work DoneApr 4, 2018


Put your books in a bag and grab your car keys, folks – we’re changing things up.

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.

The Library Cafe
Stanley Pl, South Brisbane QLD 

Is there really a better place to hit the books than a library? Not just any library though – the State Library of Queensland, overlooking the gorgeous waterfront surrounds of Brisbane City. If your brain requires a simple, local breakfast and an inspirational view to keep the wheels rolling, then this café is ideal for you.

If you prefer working in a quiet space, head over after the morning rush and take your (deliciously) sweet time!

Café Auchenflower

Alongside a warm, friendly atmosphere and a range of nutritious breakfast bowls, this cafe provides a homey and refreshing dining experience. Need to fuel that brainpower? Welcome to Auchenflower.

Whether you’re a student, a working parent or just bored of your work space, these cafes could potentially cure those staring-at-the-ceiling or those get-me-out-of-the-house blues. Because a nutritious breakfast, change of air and a sip of supreme coffee can make a whole latte difference.
