Tucked into a side street of West Village, this spot is definitely a local favourite. You can use your laptop on the sidebars (not the tables), and its top chef menu serves up healthy and delicious eats. Special shout out to the Market Rice Bowl – mmmm.

With only three tables and a whole lot of adorable boho-casz (the new boho chic) decor, this cozy spot is an Instagram dream. It’s a great place to come and putter away on your laptop in the charming neighbourhood of NoLita, but honestly, good luck getting any work done when you’re so distracted taking photos of everything.
