As any freelancer or remote employee knows well, working from home can get lonely — and your couch can all too easily become a perfect place for a nap.
That’s why, as a freelance writer, I’ve spent a lot of time frequenting coffee shops around town and using them as a temporary office space. Here are five fantastic Park City coffee shops that provide WiFi, comfy seating and hot coffee to fuel your workday while you get down to business.
Tucked in a cozy space off lower Main, Atticus is a prime place to work downtown. They offer nearly any coffee or tea drink imaginable, and the food menu spans smoothies, sandwiches and salads. Grab a seat, indoors or out, and stay fueled to tackle your to-do list all day long. And whenever you get bored, take a stroll around to browse the bookshelves, greeting cards and other fun gifts for sale.
Newly opened in March, Lucky Ones has quickly become a local hot spot for working, coffee meetings and just hanging out. (Read our Q&A with the owners here!) You can enjoy beautiful views of the dog park while you work, and know you’re giving back to a good cause — the shop employs and empowers people with disabilities. Plus, since it’s located in the lobby of the Park City Library, you’ll have convenient access to the library’s printing services, book collection and private study rooms.
With coffee, baked goods, hearty breakfast sandwiches and a wide array of tempting lunch and dinner entrées, you definitely won’t go hungry working in this cute café off Deer Valley Drive. In the summer, you can type on your laptop while overlooking a peaceful lake. Over the winter, there’s plenty of seating inside to spread out and get comfortable as you work.
Located in Kimball Junction, this spacious tea house has everything you need for a productive workday — plenty of seating, lots of warm drinks, WiFi and snacks. We recommend trying their delicious matcha latte for steady, sustained energy — without any of the typical caffeine jitters.
Toward the top of Main Street, you’ll find Stoked Coffee Roasters in a space inside the Rockwell Room. Here, you can fuel up on the “official coffee of the outdoors,” even if you’re chained to your computer for the day (sigh). Countertops and bar stools provide ample seating, and there are comfy couches in the main room you can commandeer as well.
