What’s your favourite coworking cafe in Las Palmas to work from?
Terra Bella and Jamaica.
I would super recommend Talleres Palermo! Best working vibe in Las Palmas.
I can strongly recommend Library Insular Gran Canaria. Big, nice, good internet, PCs if you need them, and great opening hours!
If anyone is looking for a place to work from in the La Isleta area, I used Las delicias de Cicita close to Castillo de la Luz this week: big tables, good internet with 35mbps, super cheap coffee and sandwiches and okay to work from (not so ideal for calls because of the street noise).
LUWAK, Un Lugar, Café Regina, Amelie Green
Also LUWAK is good! Plugs, wifi and they have lemonade.
I’m not working from cafes anymore, but I enjoyed working from these coworking cafe’s in Las Palmas in the past. This was before covid (except Un Lugar) so I’m not sure how they are to work from right now, but internet was good and the staff was fine with me working there! Cafetería del Real, Rincon Del Pan, Granier, Panaderia, AC Hotel (restaurant), Un Lugar.
I like Starbucks for an hour or so.
The perfect coworking spot in Vegueta is called Cool Beans. They recently opened and have a very nice environment and focus on hosting remote workers.
Do you have any recommendation for an internet cafe in Las Palmas, where I can work during the weekend?
Café Regina and Starbucks have been fine with me staying for hours.
I personally like Bread and Coffee to work from the beach, the place has a nice vibe.
My favorite place for work after 5PM or the weekends is the rooftop from the Santa Catalina, a Royal Hideaway Hotel.
Del Real. Cafe Regina. The Couple. All these restaurants are open on the weekend and as long as you spend money, they are happy to have you.
Which coworking cafes do you recommend to work from near La Cicer in Las Palmas?
The Block is decent. Not too many seats with power outlets available, but in the afternoon it’s pretty quiet. Internet connection and speed is insane. 280mb download and 105 up.
The Block could be a great spot for shorter work sessions. Great view on the surf spot, but outside seating only.
Try Talleres Palermo.
The Crunch Mozart near the surf beach doesn’t have WiFi but they also didn’t mind me working from there.
From which laptop friendly café in Las Palmas can I work till late at night?
Café Regina at Las Canteras is open till midnight.
What’s more, a lot of these restaurants are also recommended for their great breakfast! Check the list with recommendations for restaurants with a great breakfast (in Las Palmas).
