Top 5 Spots to Work from Remotely in Bucks County

by Jen Phillips April 

Whether you are working from home, scheduling a casual coffee meeting, or just need a change of scenery from the office, modern technology makes it pretty simple to pick up and move, and nowadays, it’s extremely common for people to do just that.  There are many hot spots where locals can plug in, but finding an environment that allows you to be productive is another story.  Through experience and an unofficial survey, we put together a list of some of the top spots where you can work remotely in Bucks County.

1—Zen Den — This quirky space is a refreshing change from the corporate blandness of the chains.  Tucked away behind the County Theatre, it’s just off the beaten track but gets packed some weekday mornings.  The quirky mix of furnishings makes it feel homey and you can choose a couch or a table by the window to write your award winning missives.

2—House of Coffee— Now with two locations,  the Peddler’s Village location provides a comfy, light filled space to meet a friend or a client or work on your own.  On warm days, you can enjoy sitting on the patio with your beverage of choice.  Locally roasted coffee.

The Doylestown location is much larger and has more bustling “city” feel.

Lahaska –  58 Peddlers Village Rd (on the same side of the road as Giggleberry Farm)

Doylestown – 22 Main Street

3—Starbucks – the ubiquitous wireless work spot with multiple locations in Bucks County. No list of WIFI spots would be complete without it!    There are multiple locations throughout Bucks County.

4—Panera Bread – The newly opened Doylestown location was an instant favorite with the laptop and iPad crowd.  What’s not to love?  You can enjoy tasty and filling sandwiches, soups and salads in a bustling atmosphere while you work.  There are Panera locations in Doylestown, Warrington and Bensalem.

5—The Corner Bakery Café – Newtown’s Starbucks is often so crowded it’s difficult to find a seat.  So, if you’re closer to the Acme, when you’re in need of a bite to eat in addition to WIFI, this may fit your need.   With an extensive menu from oatmeal to sandwiches you won’t go hungry!

For those further up the river in Upper Bucks, writer Jim Donovan recommends Brig O Doon in Ottsville at 239 Durham Road and Homestead in Upper Black Eddy. Both places roast their own coffee.

    In Lower Bucks County, I frequent Panera Bread- 1345 Lincoln Highway in Levittown and Barnes and Noble- 201 Commerce Boulevard in Fairless Hills. Both offer great coffee and wi-fi

    North of Doylestown, I’d add Brig-O-Doon in Ottsville and, further north, Homestead Coffee Roasters in Upper Black Eddy. Are we all drinking too much coffee?:-)
