Do you often find yourself scampering around town with your heavy laptop bag while desperately trying to find a place you can chill out, grab a cup of coffee and get some work done in-between meetings? We’ve scouted out the best family-friendly WiFi cafes in the city so you can minimise your commute and maximise your productivity! What do they all have in common? Ample table space, multiple plugs, free WiFi and plenty of goodies and treats to keep you (and your kiddos) energised all day long! 

Barista JamBarista Jam
The interior design might be minimalistic, but the menu is far from it! This café serves up a bountiful spread of sandwiches, salads, pastas, fresh juice, smoothies and of course, quality coffee. If you’re looking for an instant caffeine fix, try one of their amazing ice drip coffees (its guaranteed to give you enough energy for the rest of the day) – apparently they only make enough for eight cups a day!

Shop D, G/F, 126-128 Jervois Street, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong 
Tel: 2854 2211

Brunch Club & Supper
If you’re looking for a low-key, tranquil place to work, Brunch Club & Supper is the place to get plugged in for a few hours. Brunch Club & Supper is known for attracting freelance artists who need a quiet spot to work their genius. What’s better, they serve breakfast all day! If you’re not a brekkie fan, scope out their savoury lunch menu of croque-monsieurs, salads, steaks and pastas. Note that there’s quite a few stairs leading up to the cafe, so may be best to pop into here when you’re buggy-free!

1/F, 13 Leighton Road, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
Tel: 2890 2125

Café Corridor
Café Corridor is literally almost as small as a corridor, which is what makes it an amazing place for privacy. Whether you have work to do or just want to contemplate life (sometimes we all have those moments, right mama?), Café Corridor will provide you with an awesome coffee and an even better space to think.

G/F, 26A Russell Street, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
Tel: 2892 2927

Café Deadend
Café Deadend is that chic, outdoor but private wifi café that you’ve always dreamed of. Situated at the quiet dead end of Po Hing Fong or what some people like to call “PoHo”, Café Deadend is a charming café closed off from the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s outfitted with simple but stylish white walls, concrete and marble floors and wooden tables with ample space for setting up your laptop. The menu mostly consists of soups, salads, sandwiches, breakfast foods and desserts, all prepared with fresh ingredients. Besides a secret work hideout, Café Deadend is also a great place to bring the kids for brunch or lunch on the weekends.

72 Po Hing Fong, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong 
Tel: 6716 7005

Choice Cooperative
This is one of our favourite kid-friendly cafes for its delicious and nutritious goodies, and even better they have free WiFi! Settle in for the afternoon with one of their gluten-free snacks (our favourite is the chocolate chip cookies) and enjoy the relaxing, family-friendly atmosphere while you get in the zone.

7/F, BT Centre, 23 Wong Chuk Hang Road, Aberdeen, Hong Kong
Tel: 2677 7808

Classified
When you’re out and about and need a break, Classified is a fail-safe option for a coffee break, with multiple locations around town. While it’s nothing to write home about, sometimes an average but consistent cappuccino does the trick, especially with the generous space and chill ambience. Among their food options, we love their tiger prawn linguini – a chilli-flecked pasta with a generous serving of prawns. We also like to stock up on some good cheese from their varied selection on our way out.

Check here for all locations around Hong Kong. 

Holly Brown
This reliable coffee spot is a great place for knuckling down and getting your work done. You can stay for hours undisturbed in the afternoon and evenings, and don’t forget to treat yourself to a gelato! WiFi signal is great but take note that some locations turn off their WiFi from 11am-2pm – we imagine it’s to deter lingerers.

LGB

LGB
Le Gouter Bernardaud (or LGB) has a few locations around town. You’ll find one in Elements mall on the Kowloon side, two in ifc mall and one tucked into the back of LHT Tower (the building that houses the Gap store on Queen’s Road Central). You’ll be guaranteed a good WiFi signal and great service. They also serve everything from beautifully infused teas (try the ‘Fleur’ which has orange blossom, jasmine and rose notes) to excellent coffee. We recommend the ‘Gibraltar’, an espresso topped up with milk that is perfectly heated at 40 degrees celsius. LGB also has a vast selection of sweet French treats such as macarons, financiers and madeleines.

Open Door Café + Courtyard
Tucked behind the overpass heading from Eastern Street to Sun Yat Sen Park in Sai Ying Pun is the adorable Open Door Café. This is an art exhibit space, workspace and coffee shop all rolled into one. It’s never fully occupied because of the off-the-beaten-path location, so it’s usually nice and quiet.We love their seasonal dark hot chocolate topped with orange rind. They also have a small selection of health food items tucked into a corner. From protein and multigrain bars to nut butter packets and kale chips, you’ll find plenty of healthy options here. Lunch items include curried quinoa salad and not-so-healthy options like buttery meat pies.

120 Connaught Road West, Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong
Tel: 3460 3880

Rosie Jean’s Cafe
Our Sassy Mama contributor had a blast with her little one when she popped into Rosie Jean’s recently, so we couldn’t leave this one off our list! This is the perfect hideout to visit if you’ve got the kids in tow, as there’s plenty to keep the kids entertained, including the Woodland School playground next door. They’ve got baked goods, fun drinks and kid favourites like pizza and pancakes for you to satisfy your appetites while checking off your to-do list for the day.

119 Caine Road, Mid-Levels, Central, Hong Kong
Tel: 2549 9718

The Coffee Academics
The Coffee Academics is one of those rare half-indoor/half-outdoor cafés in town, which is why it’s practically always full! This buzzing café is certainly a popular lunch spot, but come after the lunch crowd and you’ll feel like you’re sitting in a charming café in Paris while you sip your coffee and enjoy the super WiFi.

Wired Café
Wired Café has got everything you need… work, ambiance and tasty food. There’s free WiFi, a great view of Causeway Bay and unlimited refills on coffee (yes, you heard that right!) It also has a gigantic menu of Western and Japanese fusion comfort foods like crepes and Japanese rice bowls. Wired Café is located conveniently in Hysan Place, so shopping breaks are always an option!

  1. This is clearly a fluff piece. A real article about places to work from would include how abundant the power outlets are. No power = no work so many of these cafes are useless

    1. Doing real work drains any laptop’s battery in a few hours – browsing I can easily get 7+ hours, running 4 servers, an IDE, frequently compiling code, I’d be lucky to get 2 hours of work done.

      1. Hi, sorry this list is not useful without the following two details:

        1. What time are these cafes open? I saw from another article that many close by 5 or 6 pm, and few open past 9 pm? Where to work after that?

        2. Do they have power outlets? My macbook pro runs for about 3 hours streaming video and charging my smartphone, that’s about 2 hours of work in the cafe (1 hour on the bus to and from). These cafes are pretty useless without access to power.

        Every article on this topic mentions wifi, but never power outlets! mobile data is so cheap these days, it’s power that’s much harder to find. The internet is a cornucopia of information, and would be much better if bloggers/writers didn’t just copy each other in terms of format and content.

        1. Hi Jess,

          This post is quite outdated, and we’ll be updating it in the next few weeks. Please check back again then!

          Thanks
