Work from “Home” :: Best Local Restaurants for Working Remotely


A woman works remotely from her laptop in a restaurant.

Working from home seems to be here to stay. While many people have home offices, your house may not always be the ideal spot for working. Working from home has countless advantages, but there are also the distractions that come with it. Of course, you could always go to a library or coffee shop to work, but sometimes you want a change of scenery — and also to treat yourself to a substantial meal.
