Coffee Shops vs. Coworking Spaces

Privacy and comfort are a top priority in coworking spaces. Find out whey these are better than working from a coffee shop.

Coffee shops are popular public working spaces for gig workers, remote employees, and hybrid workers. Most coffee shops have comfortable seating, tables, and plenty of treats and beverages to order. You might wonder if these local establishments are superior to coworking spaces.

The coworking model is one of the best options for workers who need a dedicated space outside the office. If you’re looking for a reliable place to conduct business away from home or office, consider these benefits of working in a private office instead of your neighborhood’s coffee shop.

Working Environment

Many people enjoy taking their work to coffee shops because it’s a bustling location away from home. Coupled with the delicious smell of coffee and pastries, it’s no wonder why people stay in these shops for hours conducting business.

Though most coffee shops have seating, outlets, and Wi-Fi for guests, it’s not the best working environment. Coworking spaces are for all professionals who need dedicated spaces to conduct their business. They’re professional environments with essential amenities, such as:

  • Dedicated desks
  • High-speed internet
  • Excellent lighting
  • Security features


When you book a private office, you can be confident that you can work without being around many people. Even if you don’t handle confidential information with your work, you won’t have to worry about people interrupting you in a coworking environment like they would in a public place, such as a busy coffee shop.

Privacy also becomes a concern at coffee shops when you need to step away from your computer and work materials to get something to drink or visit the restroom. At a coffee shop, your items are out in the open and vulnerable to theft or damage if you leave your table. However, a coworking space offers exceptional privacy with a private desk, file cabinet, drawers, and a door you can lock if you need to step away.

Networking Events

Remote workers flock to coffee shops to meet with colleagues and clients. They can also interact with strangers and maintain a human connection that is difficult to have from a home office. Coworking spaces also offer a chance to connect and network with professionals and collaborators in a casual yet professional environment.


As a remote worker, finding a space to be productive can be challenging. In the best-case scenario, you can get a strong Wi-Fi connection, seating, an electrical outlet, and ambient noise at a coffee shop. However, you have no control over your environment, so if something goes wrong, your productivity will suffer.

Coworking spaces are ideal for productivity. You get reliable, secure internet, sufficient workspace, and enough outlets to operate all your equipment with minimal interruptions.
