Yep. There's coffee here. But the Cafe on First Ave. also doubles as a lunch spot with charcuterie, pizzas, sandwiches and wine. There might not be a more laptop friendly non-espresso bar in town.

This lauded cocktail bar on 15th is a coffee bar by day, don't you know. But if it's evening wi-fi you're looking for, you're welcome to bring in your laptop to whittle away at your keyboard while you enjoy some liquor and damn fine sushi.

Always the classy (and classic) neighborhood bar, Locol understands that sometimes you need to work while you enjoy a meal and down a few glass pours or pints. And depending on how the weather's behaving, there's both a patio and fireplace.

216 Union St
Seattle, WA
With an ample amount of booths and barstools, the Musicquarium Lounge at the Triple Door is a great place to get some work done on the ol' laptop, as long as you don't arrive when the pre-concert goers do. That's just tacky.

Not many know about the authentic Italian coffee bar here. Before dinner time, there's Italian music videos, pastries, and baristas who understand the fine art of making you feel like you're in Italy while knocking away at the keys. (Hint: if you aks for a mimosa, they'll make you one).
