Whether you’re self-employed, work from home or are part of the hybrid revolution, sometimes you just need a place to escape to get that deadline nailed, that project finished or just grab some headspace to think and let those creative juices flow. Somewhere you can grab a coffee, and maybe a cheeky bite to go with it, plug in your headphones and get stuck in without frustrating distractions.
If you’re working remotely in Fitzrovia, we recommend you head for Rathbone Square, where you’ll find a whole host of inviting London coffee shops just waiting to give you the space you need to get that job done.
Situated just a short walk from Tottenham Court Road tube station, this peaceful haven in the West End of London makes the perfect stop-off for remote workers. Sounding good to you? Here’s a round-up of our favourite places for working remotely in Fitzrovia.
Get the job done at Joe and the Juice
Find yourself a cosy nook, power up the laptop and prepare to be wowed by some of the most colourful coffees you’ve ever seen. Whilst it’s mostly renowned for its vibrant juice menu, Joe and the Juice also serves a range of tantalisingly tempting coffees that come in almost all the colours of the rainbow.
When did working remotely ever get so exciting? Maybe you’ll plump for a pink latte, or perhaps the same in yellow? Or maybe a purple cortado is more up your street, or a grey macchiato? If you’re keen to bring colour into your working life, then you’ll not go wrong at Joe’s. And if tea is more your worktime tipple as you logon for your next video meet, how about a spot of green mandarin, or a dash of vanilla rooibos?
Shakes, juices and shots are also menu highlights at Joe’s. Feed your working brain cells with Joe’s Green Mile, a refreshing combo of apple, avocado, broccoli, ice, lemon and spinach. Or take a moment to chill out between emails with Stress Down, concocted from apple, strawberries, ginger and ice. A ginger or turmeric shot could also hit the spot as that deadline looms.
As London coffee shops go, Joe and the Juice is one of those that’s known for its yummy snacks, ideal for when you’re working remotely and are desperate for a sugar fix to re-energise. Reward yourself for all your hard graft with a bite of banana bread, a delish blueberry muffin or an almond croissant. Need a chocolate fix? Go for it with a choco muffin or chocolate brownie.
Work guilt-free at White Pine
White Pine is a sustainable, cruelty-free boutique coffee and juice bar offering an enticing menu of Icelandic style protein shakes and vegan snacks.
Everything comes from local suppliers and is sold in sustainable packaging, so you get to work without the guilt trip.
For anyone working remotely in Fitzrovia who fancies a wholesome vegan snack to get them through their deadline, White Pine has plenty to offer. Try the White Pine club sandwich made with delicious award-winning Lithuanian scalded Rye Bread and packed with mashed avocado, vegan chicken and tomato. Or how about a superfood smoothie bowl, maybe the golden turmeric with mango, banana, coconut milk? And there are plenty more to choose from.
On the coffee menu are all the old favourites, from mochas to flat whites and cappuccinos. Or maybe you’re after something different? If so, try an organic hot chocolate, an organic matcha latte, a blue matcha latte or chai latte.
Over on the tea menu, there’s a tempting array of choice, from passion tea subtly flavoured with peach, euphoria tea with exotic mango, and harmony tea with lavender and linden flower.
Sounds like nothing you’ve ever tried before? Then it’s time to change all that and give White Pine a go next time you’re working remotely in Fitzrovia.
Enjoy a Japanese coffee experience at Omotesando Koffee
Coffee connoisseur Omotesando Koffee is renowned worldwide for its Japanese coffee, brewed to order right in front of your eyes by expert baristas in white lab coats.
London coffee shops don’t come much more minimalist than Omotesando, where you’ll enjoy working against a backdrop of light wood and unfussy décor, typical of Japanese interior design.
Got a preference for a certain type of coffee? You’re sure to find exactly what floats your boat here. And if you fancy a bite to eat to keep you going through your shift, you’ll find a tempting choice of mouth-watering traditional Japanese pastries too.
Satisfy your sweet tooth at Crosstown Doughnuts
Crosstown Doughnuts is well-known across the UK for its delicious doughnuts and handcrafted cookies, with everything made in-house, including jams, compotes, fillings, glazes and toppings, all using the very best seasonal ingredients.
There’s a 100% vegan range as well as small batch ice cream to enjoy, and you’ll not fail to be impressed by the flavours on offer. Not all Crosstown Doughnuts offer indoor seating, but lucky for anyone working remotely in West London, the Fitzrovia store does. There aren’t any loos though, so just bear that in mind.
