No office? Fear not! Colorado Springs is filled with incredible coffee shops perfect for freelancers and entrepreneurs to focus and grind.

In recent years, Colorado Springs has seen a lot of growth, and as the city has grown, so has its coffee scene. It seems like overnight the Springs became a mecca for trendy craft coffee shops — beautiful design, the perfect playlist, and most importantly, amazing coffee. At the same time, the city’s population of freelancers and remote workers has grown exponentially.

While traditional office jobs fade into oblivion, the Colorado Springs’ bustling coffee scene is the perfect place for remote workers to inspire their creative genius.

There is only one issue — there are so many coffee shops to choose from! That’s why we’ve put together a list of our favorite places to work remotely in Colorado Springs.

 

Switchback Coffee Roasters

Nestled in a residential area of Colorado Springs’ Downtown, Switchback Coffee is the perfect neighborhood spot. Work with other freelancers at the large community table, hole up at the coveted cubby table, or grab a seat outside in the Colorado sunshine — whatever your preference, there’s a seat for you. Our favorite part? Their drip coffee is donation-based, making coffee accessible to the masses. And for all you coffee snobs out there, their award-winning beans are actually roasted right next door!

 

The Wild Goose Meeting House

The Wild Goose Meeting House paved the way for the coffee scene here in Colorado Springs. During the day, The Wild Goose serves coffee from various local roasters, massive cinnamon rolls, sandwiches served with their famous “gooseberry jam” and more. For you evening workers (or daytime drinkers), you can find wine, beer, and amazing cocktails. And if you’re into getting work done to some tunes, The Wild Goose has a diverse live music lineup several nights of the week.

 

Principal’s Office

Housed in the Ivywild School on the southend of Colorado Springs, Principal’s Office serves drinks from “wake-up call to last call.” Start your day with one of Colorado Springs’ best lattes and end it with a craft cocktail made from fresh ingredients and house made syrups and tinctures. Ivywild School is also home to Bristol Brewery and Pub, Axe & The Oak Whiskey, and Ivywild Kitchen, so your workday will never get boring.

Clean lines, modern textures, and dang good coffee — Loyal Coffee is a barista-owned coffee shop in Downtown Colorado Springs (and now in North Colorado Springs, too!) serving some of the best coffee in town. By day they serve coffee, kombucha, baked goods, and delicious toast topped with eclectic pairs of fruit, spreads, and unique garnishes. If you’re a night owl and prefer working over cocktails, Loyal’s got your back, too. Their goal is to foster community through coffee, and they are committed to giving their guests a “beautiful space to work, relax, and connect with others.”

 

Peak Place

Peak Place is centrally located off of Academy Boulevard, making it the perfect spot for remote workers who live farther from Downtown Colorado Springs. They roast their beans in their roastery, Hold Fast Coffee Co, “highlighting complex sweetness, full body and unique flavor compounds.” Coffee isn’t the only thing on their menu — grab an acai bowl, local pastry, or a cheese plate. And if you’re working late, be sure to check out their amazing happy hour!

 

Building Three Coffee

Building Three Coffee is located in The Lincoln Center, an old elementary school turned into a thoughtful collection of tenants including a coffee shop, bakery, pilates, barber and more. Building Three’s roastery is located right across the hall from the cafe. They source high quality beans and even take annual origin trips to personally meet their growers. With ample seating, plenty of great food options nearby, and the chillest playlist, Building Three Coffee is the perfect place to hunker down for a long day of work.

 

Wayfinder Coffee Co.

This one’s for all the freelancers on the north-side of Colorado Springs. Wayfinder Coffee Co. is serving craft coffee in hopes to “transport you to a favorite memory, help you indulge in a personal coffee ritual, or create a new experience inspired by our global perspective.” Their delicious baked goods and thoughtful travel-inspired decor make this the perfect spot to dream about your next trip, oh, and hopefully get some work done, too!

 

Good Neighbors Meeting House

Tucked back in the historic Patty Jewett neighborhood of Downtown Colorado Springs, Good Neighbors Meeting House is just that — a meeting house for neighbors! Along with coffee from local roasters, they serve kombucha, tea, milkshakes, wine, beer, and cocktails. They also serve a variety of food items, but their claim to fame are sweet and savory waffles. Good Neighbors is the perfect place to grab a cup of coffee and meet with a client or get some work done.

 

Blank Coffee

Blank Coffee is newer to the coffee scene in Colorado Springs but has quickly become a local favorite. The dining area is beautifully designed, has plenty of seating including a loft area, and is in a location convenient to both Old Colorado City and Downtown Colorado Springs. Their food menu is fresh and amazing — serving bowls and toasts — but the best offering has got to be their delicious homemade donuts. Their unique flavors like spiced pear and peach jalapeño will keep you coming back for more.

 

Next time you find yourself in that working-from-home funk, head to one of these nine incredible Colorado Springs coffee shops, grab a cappuccino, and get some work done!
