Best Blogging Coffee Shops in The Valley

Now that I’m on my own, I find that I really enjoy working out of coffeeshops. And considering I’ve been driving my daughter to school some mornings in “the valley” of LA, I’ve been searching far and wide for places with free wifi and caffeine that I can plant myself for a few hours to get some work done.

However, I’m realizing that I was completely spoiled in Seattle where just about every small retail district in North Seattle had an independent coffeeshop (almost always with free wifi!). Here in The Valley, good blogging (independent) coffee shops are are nearly non-existent. (It’s worth noting that both of those links to go maps that are at the same scale!)

With all that said, here are the coffee shops I’ve found (although I’m definitely still on the lookout for more!):

Perks (yelp)

Northridge, CA 91325

Daily Grind (yelp)
18131 Chatsworth St
Granada Hills, CA 91344

Village Coffee Roasters (yelp)

Northridge, CA 91328

Coffee Junction (yelp) Currently closed while undergoing renovations

I’ll happily update this post to add more coffee shops in the valley with free wifi, so please don’t hesitate to let me know if there are others!

  1. Jessie,

    You’re all over the Panera Bread… I didn’t even know they had one in the valley, although if I remember right, the shop in Santa Monica kicked us off the wifi after an hour. Nonetheless, I’ll definitely try it out this week! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Interesting. Now I’ll have to concede that the area formed by the “triangle” of San Fernando / Calabasas / Glendale is indeed quite “Valley like”. But everything east and south of there? Nah…

    I always say you can learn more by reading blogs than by any other method. Who’d have thunk I’d get a LA geography lesson today? I love it! Anaheim is the extent of my LA experience. You’ll never guess why I was there…

    (I bet our summer heat sink beats your summer heat sink! ๐Ÿ™‚ )

    You like totally dated a Valley Girl? That so totally, you know, rad!

  3. I have spent entire days there for a change of pace and as long as you are actively surfing you are connected. May have been because were too busy talking… my laptop went into sleep mode.

  4. Back in Sweden after 6 weeks in Thailand.

    Btw, have started to think about doing a California ‘remote trip’. Maybe at a coffeshop near from you one day. ๐Ÿ˜‰
