The antique library feel gives it a vibrant vibe that will take you back in history, while boosting productivity. (There is also a Buddy Brew Coffee here!)


  • No free wifi
  • Beautiful architecture & design
  • Ample seating (indoor & outdoor)
  • Historic library vibe

Buddy Brew Coffee

We already mentioned their Hyde Park location, but there are also three other locations in downtown Tampa at Park Tower, at the Oxford Exchange, & their original location on Kenndey Blvd. No matter which spot you choose, each provides a warm, unique atmosphere.

  • Food & drinks
  • Lots of indoor seating
  • Ample power outlets
  • 3 Tampa locations, 1 Sarasota location & inside the Tampa Airport.

Sparkman Wharf

With free Wifi throughout the Sparkman Wharf, you can work all day without interruption. However, the ample outdoor areas mean there are less power outlets if you need to recharge.

If you’re looking for a fun, outdoor place to work, this is the place! It has a garden/park vibe and tons of places to grab breakfast, lunch, coffee or a happy-hour drink. There’s a Blind Tiger Coffee location here, so the coffee’s on deck.

The waterfront views are also a major plus. Who doesn’t want to work with ocean views…?

Foundation Coffee Co. 

If you like places to work outside, Foundation Coffee Co has a beautiful patio where you can enjoy the weather while you type away. Personally, I love string lights (magical), so it’s one of the best remote working spots in my opinion…

There are many other areas to sit inside – tables, bartops & window bar. You can shuffle around throughout the day to change up your work environment (a great hack to keep up productivity).



  • Outdoor & indoor seating

The Hall on Franklin

It’s similar to the feel of Armature Works, but in a much smaller setting. It’s almost better in our opinion because you can order from all 7 menus at your table while your server runs to each window to grab the food, instead of walking around to each yourself!

Later in the evenings & weekends you can enjoy live music and happy hour deals. The pretty surrounding also seem to boost my productivity towards the end of the day…

Pro-tip: Try.the.empanadas. They’re honestly one of the best things we’ve ever eaten. Plus, they beat Bobby Flay!

There’s plenty of space to work, with a big communal table & smaller tables too. The outdoor coffee bar seating is definitely our favorite place to post up & work though.

It’s a small coffee shop with a mom & pop vibe, but they serve some yummy drinks, pastries & sandwiches. Be sure to try their espresso!
