Birch Coffee

A laptop-friendly space in New York · More in New York

WiFi time limit of 1 hour. WiFi access codes are obtained from the baristas. Social WiFi (socialwifi.com) is the service provider at this location, and users are prompted to create an account when first logging onto the network. WiFi is very reliable. The Social WiFi account and network access are free.This coffee shop recently opted to go "wifi-free" making a large space with separate desks but totally useless. Asked, staff says they want people to "talk to each other." Social engineering gone seriously pushy. Muffins are like hard baseballs. This is a No-Fun zone.

  • There’s wifi if you ask the barista for the password. It seems like it changes everyday or at least pretty often. The conversation starters are a nice touch. It was pretty chatty
    there when I went in to get some work done – Thursday between 2pm – 6pm. It was fine for what I was doing.

    No wifi. But if that doesn’t bother you, they do have these little conversation starter signs you can put next to where you’re sitting (they say things like “tell me about the life-changing book I should read”)
