Covid restrictions are dropping which means you can finally get away from staying indoors all day and get outside the home. Cafe’s have become a staple for those looking a few hours to enjoy a nice drink and get some work done or study for that upcoming exam. So how do we choose what’s a good wi-fi friendly café? We narrowed it down to certain criteria. If you’re on your MacBook/Laptop, there’s a good chance you’re studying or doing some work. So for us what would make a Good Wi-Fi Café has:
Free Wi-Fi usage
Not overly busy or too noisy
A good amount of seating and tables available
Has power-outlets options
Good deals on snacks
Delicious drinks, especially coffee
With over 30 Tables, this rather large café offers your a variety of teas, coffees and even slushies. If you're craving something sweet, their have a nice variety of deserts which include: macarons, cakes, and even bingsu (korean shaved ice).

Naming Starbucks is a bit of cop out, but it’s one of our staples when you just need a spot to go to. For now in 2022, this is the only Starbucks Reserve location in Toronto, the others in Ontario are in Oakville and Niagara. This location at the Shop at Don Mills Plaza is pretty large with at least 20 tables. You know that you can always get reliable wi-fi and along with an under-table hook to hang your bag or jacket. We also like the fact that Starbucks do not really limit your seating. Which means you can get a lot of work or studying done without worry about being kicked out

If you’re planning to work for a while and want some good food, Baretto is the spot! The cafe is more like a restaurant cafe, they have everything Italian from pizza, to sandwiches, pasta and even chicken parm! What caught our attention is cute little lattes with bear drawings. We love places that pay attention to details. There is also a good amount of seating. This place does get busy, so it's best to avoid lunch and dinner hours.

This trendy little spot near Fairview mall got popular from their Dalgona coffee on Tik Tok. However their stand out quality of drinks and food kept customers coming back. They offer everything from iced coffee to whipped cream-loaded croffles (croissant waffle). They vibe here is super chill, along with a couple patio seats outside. However, it is a smaller cafe, so there is limited seating, so we advise going peak times.

Aroma Espresso Bar
Although we wanted to shout out more of the mom and pop shops. We have to give credit to another franchise. There are plenty of Aroma’s around the city and they are all very spacious. The coffee is delicious and consistent, they have killer espresso’s and plenty of food. More importantly many of the locations have plenty of seating. Which is vital when looking for a place to study or do work on your laptop. You can count on these larger locations to provide that.
