Best Williamsburg Coffee Shops to Work or Study

I lived in Williamsburg for a year and I never need to go coffee shops like I do right now. I haven’t thought of writing about coffee shops in Williamsburg. I used to live in this building that has so many space and amenities with a beautiful East River view. Fatih used to push me to go somewhere in the neighborhood all the time. I refused to go because I knew my fancy Manhattan view days come to end eventually. 🙁 I enjoyed the view as much as possible. Every bit of second.

But of course, I knew so many Williamsburg coffee shops and I study or work in every single one of them so I know the necessary facts about them all.

1.  Gotan

Wifi: √
Outdoor: X
Gluten-Free: They have really serious stuff. You can also have lunch here. Always smells delicious.
Con: I have experienced the cheapest behavior ever in this place. I prefer tea time to time to not become a coffee addict. I refresh my tea water in almost every coffee shops  Because tea get cold in the second cup. When I ask if I can get new hot water, the woman at the counter told me I have to pay for new hot water. Never heard such a thing.

2.  Toby’s Estate

Wifi: X
Outdoor: X (just a bench)
Gluten-Free: X
Con: No charger place but I strongly believe they don’t encourage people to sit there for hours for working. They just simply serve coffee. It is a nice place for reading or writing only.

3. Caprice by Sophie

Wifi: √
Outdoor: √
Gluten-Free: oh yeah! I think Caprice is the best place for people on the gluten-free diet. (Chat with Sophie if she is there.)
Con: Wifi is not strong.

4. Sweetleaf

Wifi: √

5. Devocion

Pro: I can’t really tell a bad thing about this place. One of my favorites. I don’t know his name yet but there is this very stylish barista. Give a compliment to his shirt. He is a very nice gentleman.

6. Depannaur

Wifi: X

Con: No place for a charger.

7. Sweethouse

8. Freehold

9. The Vale Collective

Con: Since they are boutique, they don’t have a huge space to work but I think they are the best option for summer time. Because they are not a lot of people knows that they have a great backyard to work.

10. Summers

Gluten-Free: Not too strong but has some stuff.
Pro: This place is actually juice bar. If you got tired of coffee, It should be a nice change.
