The 5 best coffee places in Brussels, WiFi included

By Charlotte Deprez Published 17/01/2024

Not feeling like working from home today? We’ve put together a short list of the best coffee places in Brussels that have great WiFi and a great atmosphere for working.

As a digital nomad or freelancer, you don’t always have access to a quiet office. Of course, there’s your sofa, your kitchen table or even your bed, but working in your own home can sometimes drive you crazy.

That observation becomes even more accurate when you live in a shared house: you’re in the zone, working and focusing like no one’s watching, then your roommate comes home early and starts talking to you for 2 hours. Sounds familiar? If you just thought to yourself, yup, sounds about right, keep reading!

Belga & Co

Belga & Co has multiple locations, strong wifi, and an atmosphere that is unmatched. Choose when you visit wisely; there is often a long queue in the mornings of people on their way to work desperate for a shot of caffeine to shake off the morning.

They have coffee blends from Guatemala, Ethiopia, Columbia, Nicaragua… the list goes on. If you get a bit hungry, their assortment of pastries are more than enough to satisfy any cravings, especially for any fellow digital nomads with a strong sweet tooth.

Rue du Bailli 7A – 1000 Brussels. Monday to Friday from 8.00am to 18:00pm and on weekends from 9.00am to 6.00pm


Hinterland is a healthy café that offers homemade breakfasts, brunches and lunches. Located just steps away from Stephanie Square, it’s convenient and accessible. With delicious food and super fast WiFi, this cafe could become your new HQ.

On the menu? Smoothie Bowl, Blueberry Pancakes, Matcha Pudding with Chia Seeds, Scrambled Eggs, … The food is to die for! Several brunch formulas are available and for lunch, you’ll have to check the daily menu.

Chaussée de Charleroi 179, 1060 Saint-Gilles. Open on Mondays and from Thursday to Sunday.

Café Capitale

Café Capitale is a Brussels-based coffee brand with three physical locations in the city. Important info for coffee lovers: they roast their own beans, ensuring the finest coffee quality in each cup they pour.

Their main café is located in the heart of Brussels and has a Scandinavian yet cosy vibe. The large windows bring a lot of light in the room, which is really lovely when working. Just

45 rue du Midi, 1000 Brussels. Open Monday through Friday from 07.30 to 20 and on the weekend from  09.30 to 20.

Jat’ Café

A warm atmosphere, sockets everywhere, wooden tables and strong wifi make Jat’ Café an ideal work spot. The place is usually quiet, at least during week days, bright and you can rely on soft armchairs to spend a nice afternoon behind your laptop.

Jat’ Café offers a wide selection of food: bagels, cupcakes, salads… They have an option for each and every break during your work day. Prices are a bit high, but if you compare them to what renting an office costs, you’ll be just fine.

Rue de Namur 28, 1000 Brussels and chaussée de Charleroi 116, 1060 Brussels. Open Monday through Friday from 8 to 18 and on the weekend from 9 to 19.

Parlor Coffee

Parlor Coffee definitely is one of the best coffee places in Brussels for three reasons:

  • The coffee served there is definitely among Brussels’ finest
  • There’s a quiet mezzanine from which you can observe people coming and going in the café downstairs
  • Their spoons are the cutest you’ll ever see (yes, I’m a bit off topic)

Their homemade sweets and smoothies are also really good, though a little expensive if you want our honest opinion. However, it’ll be hard to find a cozier place in Brussels where you can open your laptop and just get your work done.

203 Chaussée de Charleroi, 1060 Saint-Gilles. Open Tuesday through Friday from 8 to 18, on Saturday from 9 to 18 and on Sunday from 10 to 18.
