Neumanns Cafe is a popular brunch cafe close to Boxhagener Platz. Neumanns is a mix between a charming neighbourhood cafe and a modern third wave cafe. It does get quite packed during weekends and is normally laptop friendly outside of busy periods but keep in mind laptops are not allowed in the front area which is reserved for people eating which is fair enough.

Kaffeemitte offers good wifi available but is timed, max 2 hours. Indoor and outdoor seating. It can get noisy so maybe not the best place to work if you need to work in a quiet place or need to concentrate. If on the other hand, you would like to work for a couple of hours in a hip and buzzing cafe, Kaffeemitte could be a great choice
