It's quite small and unassuming but once you get settled in at a table, a few hours can easily pass by. They have good wifi, several outlets and good, inexpensive coffee and pastries. It can get a little loud if it's crowded but that's the only downside.
By Pamela C. for Paniacos cafe. Workspaces
Many remote workers come here every day to work, mainly because it's super friendly and welcoming, the coffee is probably the best in Valencia and the wifi always works well. You can't go wrong working from here.
By Tomas O. for Flying Bean Coffee cafe. Workspaces
My favorite place to work, mainly due to its size. It offers a huge cafe with super high ceilings and an old world charm. You'll find plenty of seating and plenty of plug outlets. They have a big menu too, although it is a little pricier than other cafes, mainly because of its central location. The wifi is usually strong but there have been times when it goes down.
By Sander C. for Savoiardi Cakes & Coffee cafe. Workspaces
Reliable cafe/restaurant for a couple of hours of online work. Wifi always works well, they have a bunch of tables to choose from and a nice vegetarian menu as well. The afternoons are usually quiet which is why I usually show up at 3pm.
By Tatiana L. for Jardin Urbano cafe. Workspaces
Not a huge cafe but very comfortable for working. Simple menu of fresh food and great wifi. Not many plugs though so make sure your laptop is charged!
