7 places for laptop time in Birmingham

Stay.com recently asked me to compile a list of my favourites spots for working in central Birmingham:

Urban Coffee Co (Church St)

Good coffee in the heart of the business district.

Coffee Lounge (the one on Newhall St)

A vast menu in a scrumptious setting.

The Birmingham Rep Café

A pick-a-mix of old theatre seats with a view. Usually opens from 12.


Bottomless coffee (or tea) and legendary breakfasts.

Urban Coffee Co (Jewellery Quarter)

A big space to work right in JQ’s creative community plus breakfast or lunch to keep you going.

Boston Tea Party (Corporation St)

Baked beans on toast for breakfast or lunch.

The Studio (Cannon St)

Space to think, meet and get things done. Call/tweet to check availability as on occasional days, this meeting venue opens its quiet atrium bar to the public. £5 for all drinks and if you're lucky, snacks.

All have WiFi and large cups of coffee. Obviously.
