The other day I got a chance to telework, something I'm not familiar with, and I was trying to think of a good spot. I decided on Qualia Coffee up at Georgia and Randolph, as I figured it wouldn't be too crowded and there's a big patio spot. There actually was a decent crowd but I was able to find a shaded spot in the back.
That got me thinking, what are other good places to telework in our area? I always see folks with laptops at Tynan Coffee & Tea at 14th and Irving, but they also had a no-laptops-before-3pm rule to make sure people didn't camp out there for hours working and only have one coffee, thus preventing other customers from staying. I'm checking to see if they still do that. (In general I think a good rule of thumb is that if you're going to hang out somewhere for a few hours, at least buy a couple of things -- these are our local businesses after all.)
I also think The Coupe at 11th and Park and Coffy Cafe, the tasty coffee, tea & creperie on 14th just north of Irving and Panera could be good options, all are fairly large inside. And of course there's the Starbucks at 14th and Irving, but it's always crowded.
There's some local libraries too, but they wouldn't let you snack or drink coffee I bet.
What do you think, local teleworkers? Any recommendations or spots to avoid?
