Whether you’re a small business owner a freelancer, or you work at a startup, the office isn’t always the best place to work all day long. Sometimes to get those juices flowing, you have to step out into the world a bit to get some work done. Coffee shops often provide the perfect balance of a work promoting environment and something a little bit out of the ordinary. Don’t believe me? Don’t knock it before you try it! Here are some of our favorite coffee shops to work from in the OC:
Whether you’re looking for a place to sip on a wonderful latte while you work or if you want a quality sandwich for lunch, The Neighborhood Cup is a great place to go. With a casual and welcoming atmosphere and top of the line coffee, you really can’t go wrong.
These guys may call themselves “The Lost Bean” but they haven’t lost anything at all and definitely know a thing or two about making quality coffee. If you’re looking for somewhere you can drink organic coffee and tea to help you stay focused on your work – this is definitely the place you should be.
Everyone loves Portola Coffee Lab. For one thing, their extensive menu is spectacular. And as if that wasn’t enough, Portola Coffee Lab has recently just earned the title of 2015 Micro Roaster of the Year! At Portola Coffee Lab, they believe that each cup of coffee should be made with a great deal of dedication and passion. Doesn’t that sound like a great work environment?
If you would consider yourself a coffee connoisseur then Coffeebar Byul is the perfect workplace for you. Not only do they only make high-quality coffee, but they pay close attention to detail. For example, they only use a special type of cocktail ice to make sure that your drink doesn’t get watery. So if you’re sipping an iced coffee while you work, no need to rush, your drink will taste just as great when you bought it.
5. The Night Owl
If you’re working late at night and need some caffeine to help you stay focused, The Night Owl is the best place to swing by. This place is especially great for people that like a little bit of background music while they work because they have live performances all the time!
We here at Directive Consulting, love working inside of the office and out. When it’s out, you better believe it’s one of those coffee shops I just told you about.
