You should be comfortable while you work!
Escape Work

Sometimes being trapped between the same four walls can kill your productivity. A change of scenery, with a fresh cup of your favorite beverage and something to snack on, is the perfect way to kickstart your creativity. Here are a few of our favorite places in Barrie that will help reignite your workflow.


One of the coziest places in Barrie, Bohemia's atmosphere is warm and inviting with indoor and balcony seating. Delicious cups of coffee, tea, and espresso creations along with a fantastic breakfast and lunch menu will make sure your work isn't interrupted by an empty stomach.

Homestead Artisan Bakery

Specializing in artisan breads, Homestead Artisan Bakery will help you stay in the zone with fresh coffee and delicious baked goods. Grab a seat, relax, and be prepared to never leave as the freshly baked aromas float from the kitchen to your new work station.

Barrie Public Library's Rooftop Garden

With colder weather just around the corner, we need to squeeze every ounce of outdoor time we can out of summer. The Barrie Public Library renovated its rooftop garden this year and it is the perfect place to relax and get some work done. Turn up your screen brightness and enjoy this rooftop workspace.

Common Good Cafe & Social House

Connect yourself to the wifi, grab a cup of joe, and work the day away. Everything at Common Good is prepared with locally sourced products and seasonal items come and go all the time. If you stay long enough you can switch that coffee out for a specialty cocktail too.

Casa Cappuccino

Casa Cappuccino has been a local favorite for quite some time now. Delicious treats, tons of beverage choices, and welcoming staff all help create a comforting atmosphere where you can work in peace. Before the weather cools down, grab a seat outside and you might even get to hear some live music from the new public piano located right next to the cafe.

Meridian Place & Heritage Park

Don't miss your chance to work outside because soon you won't have the choice. Take a seat at Meridian Place, in the Gazebo, or at one of the benches along the water and do some work with a cool breeze and a nice view.
