Best Coffee Shops To Work From Home In Sacramento

If you are one of the lucky employees who get to telecommute, you probably get a little stir crazy working from home every single day. Sometimes, a change of pace or scenery is the trick for getting caught up on your workload. If you walk into any of the local Starbucks, finding a seat can be challenging at times. Here's a look at five other coffee shops in Sacramento that are ideal for working from home.
Tupelo Coffeehouse
5700 Elvas St.
Sacramento, CA 95819
(916) 538-6124

Located near Sacramento State University, Tupelo Coffeehouse is a popular spot for studying students. Tupelo has power outlets, solid wireless internet and excellent coffee. It recently underwent a remodel to add more power outlets. Tupelo is open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. so you can stop by even late at night to catch up on some work. Tupelo is part of the popular Naked Coffee brand that has Naked Lounge locations in Downtown and Midtown, along with Orphan Breakfast House and Arthur Henry's Supper Club & Ruby Room.

Old Soul at 40 Acres
3434 Broadway
Sacramento, CA 95817
(916) 453-8540

Old Soul Co. was started by Tim Jordan and Jason Griest after they met at Naked Lounge Coffeehouse. Griest had moved to Sacramento to open the coffeehouse in 2002, and a longtime friendship turned into business with the artisanal Old Soul Co. coffee roasters. Along with incredible roasts, Old Soul has a great lunch menu. Stop by in the afternoon to catch up on work and enjoy some delicious eats

Insight Coffee Roasters
1901 8th St.
Sacramento, CA 95811
(916) 642-9555

With pastries, coffee and free Wi-Fi, Insight Coffee Roasters offers all of the ingredients for the perfect way to start the day. And, since Insight is not open past 7 p.m., early morning is the best time to get some work done here. Insight Coffee's pastries are some of the best in Sacramento. Try the chocolate raspberry scone or the almond croissant. Breakfast burritos are very popular menu items as well. All of Insight's coffee is roasted here onsite at the Southside location. Check for free coffee and other specials with certain social media check-ins on Yelp and Foursquare.

Origin Coffee & Tea
2168 Sunset Blvd.
Rocklin, CA 95765
(916) 787-5676

Origin Coffee has free Wi-Fi and excellent coffee, but those aren't the main reasons you should choose to work from here. Origin Coffee & Tea is actually a non-profit with all volunteer employees. Its primary mission is to fight against sex trafficking, both domestically and internationally. Employees volunteer their time in support of this important topic. So why not pick a coffeehouse with comfy loungers, free Wi-Fi and coffee profits that go towards making a difference?
