Today’s Internet and smartphone age introduced us to a new kind of bugbear — the fear of going out without staying connected to the Internet. The absence of Internet access while outside makes it impossible for us to update our Facebook status, snap or tweet the things that we’re up to, browse our Instagram feed, and even avail limited free bookmaker bets offered by online gambling sites. But do not fret. These cafés in Brisbane will let you enjoy your tea or coffee while staying connected to the Internet.
- Avid Reader
As the name implies, Avid Reader is a bookshop café situated at the West End. The place is a good refuge if you want to temporarily escape the hubbub of Boundary Street. You can enjoy their free WiFi as well as their famous special blended coffee. You should also try their toasted Turkish bread sandwiches, salads, soups and tarts.
- Brew Café and Wine Bar
While you are at the Brisbane CBD, don’t forget to make a stop at Brew Café and Wine Bar. They serve breakfast and night dishes with complementary free WiFi. Make yourself comfortable with their cozy couches while sipping their double Ristretto or chai tea. The café usually opens at 7:00 am on weekdays and 9:00 am on weekends.
- Sol Breads Café
Sol Breads is a chain of cafés that can be traced at Toowong, West End and in some parts of Brisbane. They have an online store where you can purchase gluten-free breads, wheat alternatives and wheat sourdoughs. Their cafés open as early as 6:30 am, which is ideal for workers who would want to have a light breakfast before heading to work. For those who are health conscious, try their organic muesli with fresh fruit and organic yogurt. Guests can also check their social media accounts for new updates, thanks to the café’s free WiFi.
- The Single Guys
Don’t get wrong with this café’s minimalistic design and interiors. You know what they say, “Less is more.” That being said, the coffee that The Single Guys serve certainly does not lack the aroma, kick and taste that Australians love with their brewed and roasted coffee. You can visit The Single Guys at Moggill Road, Kenmore. Oh, they also offer free WiFi!
- Pear Café and Bar
What’s not to love about coffee and Internet access? At Pear Café and Bar, they bring those two together and chip in foods that are made from scratch. Their Falafel Special and Grandma’s Egg and Onion are a must-try!
