Cafe Jax +2

A laptop-friendly space in New York


A few seats upstairs, maybe 60 seats downstairs. Tables, armchairs, desks. The downstairs is hot, crowded, and smells like butts. But the drinks and food are good and wifi is reliable. There is also a small courtyard out back but it's very small with 6 chairs and a broken bench. Lots of college students and study groups; I was here on a Saturday and literally every seat was full, so get here early or plan for a bit of a wait. They have a decent 3rd party router so the wifi reception and connection is good, but the speed can drop with like 100 laptops on it at once. The actual seating is downstairs. Most walk in and see only 4 seats then leave because they're full.Wifi password changes every day - also gets slow when it's busy. Tons of seating downstairs.Best hours are probably during Monday-Friday during normal working hours if you are looking for a quiet space to get some work done.Huge basement downstairs with lots of desks and armchairs. Most people here are working -- lots of laptops. WiFi is free with purchase and connection is good. Outdoor patio space in back. Gets very crowded, so arrive early. Serves coffee and food.

  • WiFi password: greentea

  • Cafe Jax now closes the downstairs (where all the tables are) at 8, one hour before closing. There are a handful of tables upstairs, but your chances of getting a seat there are slim to none. Too bad.
