Working or studying at home can get mundane, and with a plethora of things to distract you, it’s nice to have a go-to place on deck that will keep you focused and productive. A good working or studying spot has free WiFi first and foremost, and an endless supply of things to munch on, and a decent selection of drinks (preferably strong). Here are 7 places in Brampton where you can work or study.
1. T By Daniel | 25 Peel Centre Drive
Not only does T by Daniel have free WiFi they also have a great variety of both hot and cold drinks. Though in Bramalea City Centre, it offers a pretty sweet spot to get things done. The environment is white, clean, and energetic and there are several tables to choose from. You can find T by Daniel close to Hudson’s Bay Company on the second level.

2. Butter & Cup | 218 Dougall Ave, Caledon
Butter & Cup is a cozy setup with seating inside or outside (when the weather is right). Its drinks are locally roasted and fair trade, which automatically makes any drink taste better. The freshly baked chives and cheese scones are to die for, along with this charming shop’s other baked goods.

3. Coffee Culture | 10525 Bramalea Road

4. Starbucks | 190 Queen Street East.
Brampton doesn’t have a lot of independent cafés, so it comes as no surprise that Starbucks is on this list. It’s a reliable go-to. This particular Starbucks is probably one of the best in the city, it’s pretty low-key and generally quiet as well. The giant window brings in lots of natural light and seats beside it are a commodity.
Hours of Operation: 6 a.m to 10 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday
5. Second Cup | 74 Quarry Edge Dr.
This coffee house is a comfortable space for great food and good WiFi. Although it’s similar to Starbucks, the menu has considerable differences, so it all comes down to preference. This is a great place to get work done, and for that reason, it’s usually busy, so you’ll want to show up early. (The Second Cup at 7700 Hurontario is good, too!)
Hours of Operation: 6 a.m to 11 p.m. Sunday to Thursday and 6 a.m. to 12 midnight Friday and Saturday.
6. Steaming Cups Café | 6 George St. S.
Steaming Cups is the latest independent café on the local scene. Not only can you stream your latest seminar, but you can also enjoy a good selection of coffee and tea drinks and lattes. They also have scones and cookies if you need a snack, and wraps and salads if you’re looking for something a bit more substantial.
Hours of Operation: 8 a.m- 9 p.m. Monday to Friday and 11 am. to 9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday
7. William’s Fresh Café | 2454 Queen St E.
William’s best features are its ample amount of seating and vast menu. Its booths are perfect for hunkering down and putting in some good work or study time, and the menu has a tonne of options from salads to sandwiches and smoothies to chocolate cake. Reward yourself after a hard day’s work.
Hours of Operation: 6 a.m to 12 midnight Monday to Thursday, 6 a.m. to 1 a.m. Friday, 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday, and 7 a.m. to 12 midnight on Sunday

Segovia is only of the city’s only independent cafes, and it’s got its own unique flare. They import all of their coffee beans fresh from the mountains of Nicaragua, and they serve up delicious Latin-inspired eats including empanadas, brigadieros, alfajores and more. They also import Cheesecake Factory cheesecakes, so you’re in for a sweet treat.
