Many of us regularly spend pockets of time in a coffee shop or a cafe, for lunch or a quiet cup of tea or chai, with a book or a journal, friends, or simply our own thoughts for company. Whether waiting for a meeting, cramming for exams or simply fulfilling a coffee craving, we’ve listed six coffee shops that are perfect for all your hanging-out needs.
