Freelancers rejoice – incredibly you can access free Wi-Fi readily across Sydney’s Inner-West. Yes, the Inner West council has made Norton St, the pulse line of Leichhardt, into one long thoroughfare of free Wi-Fi!

Are you feeling uninspired working from home in your PJs? Feeling a bit like a recluse, right? Well, now is the time to get out and work remotely! Maybe organize a creative huddle while you are at it too?

Here’s how you can stir up some creativity, add some variety to your workweek while supporting your local economy by hot-desking from these cool neighbourhood cafes – plus they all have a quirky twist.

  1. Piccolo Cafe (626 Darling Street, Rozelle)

Piccolo is a popular café, if the front café is packed – don’t worry, just walk past the counter and go into the courtyard. They have sun umbrellas and outdoor heaters, so you are covered for all seasons.

  1. Manmaru (495 Marrickville Road, Dulwich Hill)

Formerly the Graf Café, the new owners have revamped the joint and given it a Japanese infusion via its vegetarian menu and art while keeping the previous industrial feel. Very Melbourne-like!

  1. Local Press (19/331 Balmain Road, Lilyfield)

Coffee snobs who like their coffee strong and aromatic can brew their creative ideas all day here – the boss approves it!

  1. Black Toast Café (43 Booth Street, Annandale)

This local gem has been a popular haunt for freelancers for many years. Get lucky and network while sipping their amazing chai tea latte.

  1. Berkelouw Bookstore (70 Norton Street, Leichhardt)

I can’t believe I’m sharing this secret spot to you! Tucked above the bookstore in a nice, sunny corner is the former bar with a plush chaise longue, high chairs and tables. Surrounded by the library of 2nd hand books and local artworks, the serenity is welcoming when you have to churn out a polished 1000 word article in an hour.

These are just some cafes I have discovered recently – share your favourite freelance hot spots in the comments below. Who knows we may even cross paths one day?
