Epoch Coffee

Copy Link

The North Loop coffee shop gets bonus points for its massive tables, outdoor outlets, and the fact that it’s open 24 hours. The West Anderson, Far West, and downtown locations — though not 24/7 — will also do in a pinch.

Flightpath Coffeehouse

Copy Link

There’s a reason why Flightpath calls itself “the home office away from home” — live music doesn’t exist here.

Radio Coffee & Beer

Copy Link

Stumptown coffee, a plethora of beers, pastries, Veracruz All Natural tacos, and Thai food from Dee Dee, are all available at the South Austin cafe. With a fully charged laptop, the grassy lawn or shaded outdoor seating is best for people and dog-watching. Otherwise head indoors for outlets. Be warned: there’s no Wi-Fi on the weekends or after 5 p.m. on weekdays “to encourage interaction." The additional parking lot is a good bonus.
