Best Work-Friendly Cafés in Berlin

Berlin is full of freelancing creatives, entrepreneurs and digital nomads who are constantly in need of inspiring places to get work done. And even if you’ve got an incredible Kreuzkölln Altbau apartment overlooking the canal and it’s got white walls and original wood floors and Herman Miller everything, everybody’s got to get out of the house sometime. There are plenty of cafés to frequent in Berlin, but not all are created equal. Anyone who’s spent more than a minute trying to connect to shoddy wifi knows what we mean. The undeniable criteria for a good remote working location is a wifi signal with strength surpassed only by the staff’s intricate knowledge of single-origin coffee, and of course a steady supply of both. In our book, a pleasant atmosphere, things to snack on, and great design also go a long way.

Whether you’re a digital nomad passing through or a born and bred Berliner, these quality cafés have everything you need to settle in for a prolonged session of productivity.

The Store

Located in the ground floor of Soho House Berlin, The Store is a concept space blending fashion, design, art, music and food. Tempted yet? The curated mix of designer clothing, cool vinyl records, mid-century modern furnishings plus all manner of beautiful print publications means every visit is inspired from the get-go. Courtesy of The Store Kitchen, quality food and drink are readily available as long as they’re open, and the healthy supply of tables, chairs, couches, wifi and power outlets mean you could (and probably should) plan on camping out here the entire day. We’re guilty as charged on that account at least once a week.

Best Internet Cafes in Berlin Distrikt Coffee

Distrikt Coffee

With coffee and brunch games strong enough to warrant inclusions in both our Best Coffee in Berlin and Best Brunch in Berlin lists, Distrikt’s friendliness toward the digitally inclined also make it a great place for breakfast meetings or working through some emails. You should be able to score a table with relative ease on a weekday, but due to crowds, setting up shop on a weekend probably won’t be an option. You’ve been forewarned.

Best Internet Cafes in Berlin Hallesches Haus

Hallesches Haus

The folks at Kinfolk would drool over this space in the heart of Kreuzberg, although come to think of it Scandinavians probably don’t drool. The recent expansion off of Hallesches Haus’ existing general store offers a bright and warm café area with lots and lots of table space. The atmosphere is cozy, comfortable and welcomes those set on digging into some work on the computer for a while. Food is served all day long so there’s plenty else to dig into as well. Mornings feature fresh pastries, sandwiches and breakfast bowls and lunch starts at noon with a canteen-style menu that changes every day. Coffee and tea offerings round it all out and make sure you don’t have to leave for any reason. Productivity beckons.

Best Internet Cafes in Berlin Prachtwerk

Prachtwerk

This Neukölln café is a great place for caffeination and hunkering down with the macbook for a few hours. Just a word of caution: if it’s productivity you seek, think daytime hours. Doubling as a concert venue, Prachtwerk’s space becomes much more lively around 7pm. You’re probably good to hang and work up until then, but any closer to 8pm and you’re better off packing up, grabbing a large Berliner Berg draft from the bar and enjoying some nice live (and mostly local) music.
