5 Coffee Shops North of I-635 that are Perfect for Working Remotely

Cafe Intermezzo

For those who are coffee or tea aficionados, Cafe Intermezzo is the perfect place for you. They have the best selection of coffee, tea, and alcohol around. I suggest the Cochin Masala Chai Tea, it is very spicy and perfect if you are needing a something extra to help you stay awake.

The amazing interior of Cafe Intermezzo is very luxurious and perfectly captures the elegance of Italian culture with its interior design. But do not be intimidated by the decor, it is a very eclectic atmosphere. If you are looking for a quiet place to work remotely or study, you will fit right in with casual dress attire. However, if you are looking more for a dining experience Cafe Intermezzo can perfectly accommodate this need as well.

What really makes Cafe Intermezzo a perfect place to work remotely is their hours. They are open all day every day of the week. Monday thru Thursday they open at 7:30AM and close at Midnight. Friday and Saturday they open at 7:30AM and close at 1:00AM. During the day, it is very quiet and will only play classical music.


Mudleaf Coffee

If you are looking for something much more casual that is kid friendly go to Mudleaf Coffee. They have been voted as the Best Coffee Shop in Plano in 2018; and they provide a great space for (literally) anyone in any circumstance. For students it is a fantastic place to study because it is so quiet. For professionals, Mudleaf is perfectly suited for working remotely. Also, they have a conference room that is available for rent and is perfectly suited for any off-site meeting. And for mothers with littles, your children can play in the perfectly instagramable play area while you do your thing.

Mudleaf Coffee also serves a fantastic selection of food and drinks! For drinks, I highly recommend the Lavender Honey Latte. Also while you’re there, be sure to try the Hot Kolaches, Rolly Bun, or the Monkey Bun!

If you are anything like me and you consistently find yourself performing at your best later in the evening or at night, Sweet Hut Bakery & Cafe is a great option for those who need to get out of the house! Sunday through Thursday they close at midnight. On Friday and Saturday the close at 1am.

For food and drinks they have a great selection. Their drink selection includes: Boba, smoothies, coffee, and food! My personal favorite drink item is the Chai Tea Latte with Boba and my favorite food item is the Bacon Cheese Fries.

Fair warning though, Sweet Hut Bakery & Cafe is also a Local hot spot for teens and it can get loud at times.


Karmic Grounds

Perfectly nestled among the Echelon at the Summit luxury apartments in Frisco. Karmic Gounds is the perfect quiet spot for anyone who has lots of work to do. It is at an easily accessible location on Ohio Dr. and open to the public (rather than just apartment residents). The location is perfect for anyone (students and professionals a alike) because it is about a five to 10 minute drive from Frisco High School, Collin College Preston Ridge Campus, and several other local businesses.

The menu is 100% locally (or close to it) and responsibly sourced. As well as some of the best coffee and teas the also sell micro brewed beer on tap and wine. If you are looking to try some thing new be sure to try Dirty Chai Tea Latte (Chai Tea Latte with a shot of Expresso) and The Texan Sandwich.


The Book Shoppe & Coffee

Because it is designed to be a place of quiet reflection and study, The Book Shoppe & Coffee is one of the quietest places in town. The Book Shoppe & Coffee is a Christian bookstore that is operated by Chuck Swindoll’s Ministry (Insights for Living Ministries). The interior decor includes a large fireplace and has a cozy vibe of home. While you are there, definitely try your favorite cup of coffee and their Quiche Lorraine.


Success! You're on the list.
