Coco Coffice is a unique cafe designed for those that want more than a cafe to work in, but arenโ€™t ready to commit to a coworking space.ย If you're looking for a calm place, Laie Libreria Cafรฉ is for you. It's a bookshop-meets-cafe with a charming terrace.ย Federal Cafe Gotico has a dedicated table for remote workers and a cozy โ€˜cabanaโ€™ for those wanting to get stuck into a dayโ€™s work.
