When I used to work at home, sometimes I would go to Joseph A Beth in Rookwood to work. Nice wifi, can get coffee at Bronte (attached to the store).

Beans and Grapes in P Ridge has nice large tables and free wifi. They just opened in Nov/Dec, so they don't really have an "identity" yet, but the coffee is decent and they also have "Silverton" doughnuts and wine.

Pleasant Perk is just down the street, it is more "coffee house-ish" but their tables are a little small to work at all day.

Also a fan of Sitwell's and Coffee Emporium.

The Panera downtown stays pretty quiet outside of lunch time.

Thanks all, much appreciated. Will start trying them all, so might be awhile until I report back.

I am partial to Tazza Mia in Carew Tower. Friendly people and great coffee. I'm not too sure about the wifi situation there but when you walk in it may look like a small coffee shop at first but there is also an upstairs area right past the counter.

Perhaps if you are just hanging out in their establishment you don't think they are entitled to some compensation? If you are paying $2/hr to park, I would think they are at least entitled to $1/hr for you to park in their place of business and occupy space, as I do not believe they are a charity. Find this an interesting argument. Why do private businesses have to subsidize public space for wifi and others camping on their domain?

Not sure where you get the idea anyone intends to use WiFi without buying coffee...

Wow. You can find nothing to nit pick in anything. No one is subsidizing anything. Free WIFI brings in LOTS of paying customers, and you have to have it to be competitive. That's why chains like Panera and Starbucks offer it.

Sure that is why they offer it. Same reason a sports bar has a ton of TVs. Doesn't mean they intend for people to come in and park for hours on end.

That's a non-issue.

Maybe to you but I don't believe to the owners of the business.
