Writer and Editor find FREE WiFi in the Valley

Amy Scott and I are in town at the same time and finding great WiFi coffee houses to work in. I’m writing (still the Vegas guidebook), and she’s editing (other travel guidebooks). We met back in San Francisco a few years ago, I think through a BootsnAll connection, but it’s been so long I don’t even remember. Neither of us know how long we’re here for, in LA that is, but it’s nice to work together while we are. Both of us are pretty good at actually doing the work while we’re out because sometimes you go out to a cafe with friends, and it’s too hard to resist a long gab session.

Today, we hit two coffee houses. One in Glendale, another in Atwater Village.

Urartu Coffee: 119 N Maryland Ave., Glendale, CA 91206 | 818.242.9666
(clean, parking garage with validation, sofas and tables and chairs, good tea, friendly staff, and lunch options)
Kaldi Coffee and Tea: 3147 Glendale Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90039 (323) 660-6005
(outdoor seating under umbrellas, good indie rock, excellent variety of freezes, retro living room furniture, and a friendly staff)




I’ve also been frequenting:
Romancing the Bean: 4109 W. Olive Ave. Burbank, CA | (818)955-7616
(comfortable pillow backed benches, tables, 2 outdoor tables)

Here’s a GREAT list of coffee houses (some with WiFi) from the blogging.la crew.
