Cafes For Your Office Away From Home

From coffee shops to cafes, these places are great to work or study in and around San Juan.

One of the many perks of working remotely is having the choice of where to work. It can be convenient to work from home, but sometimes the solitude can get to be a bit much. Finding places to work that have A/C, good coffee and WiFi are a must for the remote worker! 

Supporting local mom and pop coffee shops is great for the community, but you can’t always take it for granted that they have WiFi. Some locations have limited parking and may be great for those already in the neighborhood. Support your local establishment and be sure to thank them for the use of their premises by ordering a beverage and food while you are there!
