Whether you’re on a deadline to get that business proposal finished and sent to your boss, or need to send a few emails before jumping on the train to your next meeting, here are some of the best places for young professionals to work from in Cardiff.
The Pear Tree, Roath
Internet access is important for all of us in this day and age but even more crucial for on-the-go professionals. If you’re looking for a place offering free Wi-Fi, The Pear Tree has it covered. Just a few minutes from our Roath office, this cosy café on Wellfield Road has a relaxed atmosphere and a delicious menu, providing a great place to check your emails in between meetings and grab a bite to eat.
Kin + Ilk, Pontcanna and Capital Quarter
This artisan café, based on Cathedral Road in Pontcanna and in the Capital Quarter on Tyndall Street, has already proved a hit with businessmen and women by providing comfortable seating and desks to work from as well as a spacious layout. It’s ideal for ensuring you have plenty of space to get down to business and that no one interrupts you when you’re on a conference call or meeting with clients.
Coffee Barker, Castle Arcade
There’s nothing worse than stepping off the train and being greeted with a downpour of rain, especially if you’ve left your brolly at home. Unfortunately Wales is renowned for its microclimates, but don’t worry, you can avoid having to dash for cover by stopping in Coffee Barker. Just a short walk from Cardiff Central station, this quaint café’s location and delicious food makes it the ultimate place for refuelling while you wait for your next train or meeting.
Plan Café, Morgan Arcade
Looking for a good source of caffeine to keep you going while you work? Then look no further than The Plan Café in the city centre. Its motto of ‘simplicity is the utmost sophistication’, along with a menu packed to the brim with locally sourced produce and freshly roasted coffee, makes this gourmet café the perfect place to entertain your clients during the working day if you’re looking to make a good impression.
Waterloo Tea, Penylan, Penarth and Wyndham Arcade
If coffee isn’t your thing then Waterloo Tea will leaf you spoilt for choice. Whether you’re a fan of green teas, black teas or just prefer a traditional British cuppa, this café’s relaxed atmosphere offers something different from the norm and is fantastic for getting into the zone while you work.
It’s important to eat a nutritious meal during the working day to ensure your brain keeps working at its best. Just a stone’s throw from our Pontcanna office is Kemis, a unique café providing a range of fairly-priced and delicious salads, baguettes and sweet treats, great for providing you with food for thought – quite literally!
There are plenty of independent cafés dotted around to choose from when it comes to working on the go in Cardiff – and the same can be said for the selection of properties available across the city.
