By meerna Jun12,2024

It may be quieter on campus now that the semester is over, but we know that Longhorns never stop working to change the world – from all over the world. For those living in Austin, summer is the perfect opportunity to explore, even with a laptop on hand.

There’s no shortage of cute coffee shops in this city, and with the help of the Texas Exes staff, Alcalde We’ve rounded up our recommendations for the best places to work from home. Important qualifications include the availability of sales outlets, food options and atmosphere.

Austin Central Library
710 W Cesar Chavez St, Austin, Texas 78701

Rising six stories and featuring a rooftop garden overlooking Auditorium Shores and the Colorado River, the Austin Public Library’s central location has something for everyone. Garage prices are high, so opt for paid street parking instead or take the bus that stops right in front of the building. —Eliza Pillsbury

Capital One Cafe
106 E. 6th St., Suite 100, Austin, Texas 78701

I know what you are thinking about. Yes you Power check your account balance while you’re here, but you can also buy artisan coffee and access quiet study rooms. In addition, they often give away freebies to customers just for being there! —Janelle Sosa

Community Garden
1401 Cedar Ave., Unit 2, Austin, Texas 78702

In the quiet neighborhood of East Austin, you can find high-quality acai bowls by day… and DJs by night. There is also a retail section with records, works of art and zines from local artists. Perfect for creatives who want to feel inspired while working from home. —Eliza Pillsbury

Dear Memorable Coffee
1212 Chicon St #103, Austin, TX 78702

Small but cozy, Dear Diary meets all your vegan needs. The store is 100% vegan and plant-based, so you won’t pay any extra fees for dairy substitutes in your coffee. They also regularly display interesting seasonal drinks and sell gifts made by local illustrators. —Trinity Flaten

Flightpath Cafe
5011 Duval St, Austin, Texas 78751

This was always my favorite place – and my daughter’s! Parking in the area can be a bit of a challenge, but seating is cozy and plentiful, both inside and outside. —Patricia Shampton

Mozart’s coffee roasteries
3825 Lake Austin Blvd, Austin, TX 78703

A tried and true favorite, Mozart offers more baked goods and treats than you could ever choose from. With patio seating on Lake Austin for scenic sunset views, they are also open until midnight for night owls and those staying up late studying. —Trinity Flaten

Pershing in the East
2501 E. 5th St., Austin, Texas 78702

Formerly known as Greater Goods (RIP), the new owner has added some delicious focaccia sandwiches. The variety of seating options is a plus: bar-style seating at the back of the space can become a makeshift standing desk if you forgo the stool. —Eliza Pillsbury

Whole foods
525 N. Lamar Blvd., Austin, TX 78703

More than just a grocery store! There are plenty of seating areas and sales points upstairs. Downstairs you can find many different lunch options including barbecue, sushi, pizza, sandwiches and a salad bar. It’s the perfect place to work and people watch. —Janelle Sosa
