    They're serving Toby's Estate here and it's a perfect place to work on your laptop. Great wifi, decent amount of plugs. Didn't try the food but the sandwiches looked amazing. Plus: fantastic art!

    Awesome and way cool baristas. Great place to chill and work. Mint Lemonade is heaven on earth. The "Barista's blend" almond milk macchiato will bring a tear to your eye and fill your heart with love.

    Great open space - you almost can't believe it's on the LES. Lots of outlets for working, and a big couch if you want to relax. Also, they have a specialty tea menu, such a rare find in coffeeshops!

    My favorite coffee shop to camp out with a laptop. Good ambience with rotating art collection, friendly staff and good people watching. Bonus: almond and soy milk on the bar and great wifi.

    Comfortable work or hang cafe. Wifi, many outlets, good working tables. Also good for non working hangout -- lovely gallery interior and good music. Pastries, no real food.

    So. Many. Tables. Outlets. One of my favorite places to get work done. Great light, spacious and in a neighborhood that's great to explore and walk around if you get bored of sitting for too long.

    Had a delicious cortado here last Saturday. Spacious, bright, and lots of seating with outlets. It can get very busy on weekends and the toilet needs an overhaul, but overall a great cafe in LES.

    Love Love Love! Great place to meet friends for coffee or to get your work done. They have WiFi and a great vibe. Coffee is dependent on your barista but no complaints so far.

    huge space with tons of seating, outlets, and wifi. great for a date or going solo; not so much for groups. they were playing some great music when I went, and my latte was fabulous.

    Decent place to work with lots of space. Their avocado smash toasts are tasty and go well with their tea selection. Make sure to pet the life size black sheep.

    Nice relaxing atmosphere, ideal for relaxing, chilling out, studying or checking out things with your laptop. If you like red wine, don't miss the Chateneuf du Pape!

    Spacious and bright coffee shop. Decent wifi, though i got disconnected a few times. Obnoxiously loud rap music blasting all day : bring headphones if that's not your thing.

    Good blue bottle coffee and plenty of seats to work-- macbooks-only it seems. Bathroom is terrible, Penn station-like. Super disappointing outlier to an otherwise awesome place

    Very large lower east side coffee spot. Tons of people on laptops so presumably the wifi is good. Personally I'm here for the cold brew!

    Fast wifi. Great baristas. Quiet enough to work and spacious. Really great teas - try gypsy caravan and ginger mint. Bathroom needs a bit of work...

    Great working environment with free wifi (use the -5G wifi, found the other network didn't work, password is whynotcoffeeNYC). Seating a tad uncomfortable (benches/stools), but a good number of tables

    The dirty chai goes great with the pistachio macaron. Soy milk is readily available at the condiment station for all you lactose intolerant patrons 👍

    The chai latte brought tears to my eyes. Also there's tons of room to tear up with your chai.

    Favorite place to get work done. Free wi-fi and endless tables + outlets. Downside? No a/c in the summer. Be prepared to sweat.

    Arrive early if you want a table. Otherwise an army of mac users will take over all the tables. Great ambiance for a coffee shop.
