The area around the Old Street roundabout is rammed with coffee shops, ranging from your Cafe Neros to the sort of places that take 20 minutes to make your drink. Problem is, most of them are noisy and horrible for actually getting any work done. Walk a few minutes up City Road to Coffee Junction which, owing to being slightly out of the way, is quiet and spacious, and perfect for settling in and going deep on that children’s novel/spreadsheet you’ve been working on. The mugs of coffee are big if you’re on a freelancer budget, and there’s also a nice outdoor area for meetings when the weather’s nice.
