JK Rowling wrote most of Harry Potter inside of a cafe. If you’re anything like me or Rowling, you can agree that there’s something about cafes that allow you to get work done. Maybe it’s the caffeine or the studious atmosphere, cafes are great for productivity but not all coffeeshops are created equal.
