When it comes to working remotely, three options readily come to mind: A boring home office, a cramped table at a coffee chain, or a possibly pricy coworking space. Luckily for the out-of-the-HQ crowd, Westchester boasts a bevy of suitable spots to while away the workhours, from brand-new all-day cafés to beloved local java joints.
The newest addition to Westchester’s prime remote-work spots is Maple & Rose in Mamaroneck. Instantly embraced by locals, this counter-service, veggie-oriented eatery and café offers ample space to curl up with your laptop and chip away at that mountain of emails. Top it all off with a menu of exceptional tartines, sandwiches, salads, and pastries, and you have a spot worth a stop.
If a well-established and firmly funky coffeehouse is more your speed, give Tarrytown’s Coffee Labs Roasters a try. The popular haunt is known for its lively atmosphere, strong brew, and phalanx of locals dutifully staring into their iMacs.
For a cozy and calm North County coffeeshop option, stop by Trailside Café in Yorktown Heights. While the coffee, oatmeal, and panini are all top-notch, this hip shop is a favorite of the work-from-home crowd for its expansive outdoor seating, both in front of the building and on a verdant patio out back.
