Fonte Coffee & Wine Bar

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.

Grim's doesn't judge. You could wander in off the street at midnight wanting a Moscow mule, tomato soup and some wi-fi and you'd graciously be granted your requests.

Liberty

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.

Locöl Barley & Vine

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.

Musicquarium

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.

Oddfellows Cafe

This Capitol Hill cafe is perfect for anyone needing to get work done. It's a pleasant oasis for enjoying sandwiches, coffee, beer, bubbly and a great soundtrack. Best of all, you won't be made to feel an annoyance by staff.

Oliver's Lounge

Always hospitable to its guests, Oliver's Lounge at the Mayflower hotel offers free wi-fi along with its bar menu and classic cocktails. The most challenging thing will be finding an outlet at the bar, but they do exist!

Pan Pacific Hotel

The Lobby Bar at the Pan Pacific Hotel serves up breakfast, lunch, dinner and happy hour. While the cocktails are made on-site, the food comes straight from the Seastar kitchen next door. The wi-fi comes free of charge as long as you buy something.

There's lots of space here for meetings or just a table for one with room for a laptop, a pint and some plates of food.

Smarty Pants

It might not be blue collar Georgetown's calling card, but laptops are welcome here. Just make sure to assimilate somewhat by ordering a PBR and one of their many grilled sandwiches, okay?

Tutta Bella Neapolitan Pizzeria - Columbia City

Copy Link

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).

Volunteer Park Cafe

Perhaps the homiest of all the cafes in Seattle, you'll feel like you're working from home here, but with really good food and pastries and bottles of wine at your fingertips.
