How Many People Out There Use The Internet In The Local Coffee Shops?

I love being able to take my laptop to The Second Cup, just up the street from my house, where i can enjoy my favourite coffee, and a little time to myself, I have not done this recently, as my husband and I are currently sharing my laptop, but as soon as he gets his own computer, you can bet I will be using the computer in the cafe once again.

I've only done wi-fi at a hotel, never a coffee shop.

The hotel thing is great! There's one in Toronto that I like to stay at, now and then.

I love going to the coffee shop down the road I have a wifi laptop and I live about 11 miles from the nearest "big" city and there is a wonderful coffee shop down the road and they play soft jazz and they have nice lighting they make the BEST coffee ever plus they sell wonderful food. Sometimes they hand out free samples they are wonderful whats funny is the town is known to be a hick town lol so it's funny to have such a classy place in a town like I live in.

I think taking laptops to coffe shop is not a good idea. YOu can surf internet better in home environment having good privacy and relaxation. I have never done this and i think i would not do it unless i dont have internet at home and i want to use it.

There is not a local coffee shop in my area. I don't have a lap top computer but I'm looking at those mini lap top. I might purchase one soon.

I don't have a laptop yet ,but I think that is a great idea to take your laptop to your favorite cafe in town.

I've gone a couple times to this place called The Mezzanine by one of my friend's houses. It's cute and a lot of the students go there. Of course there's always the on campus coffee shops too.

Hello Danish/Canadian, I know what you mean. My fav. is Starbucks in the morning. I don't have a laptop, but instead I take a book or a newspaper with me. Usually I alternate between Second Cup and Starbucks. . .spread myself around. Not too crazy about Tim's. . . always tempted to eat one of their yummy donuts if I go there. Having time for yourself over a cuppa is the best therapy there is.

I have not done it, but I had a friend I chatted with often who used the wi-fi there. It seemed to be a quiet, calm environment, and they even had more privacy then I would of expected. They seemed to never have connection problems there either.

I would love to do that. However, I have my own internet connection at home so I don't need to spend money to avail a connection in a cafe. Next, I can't stay late outside because I am still a student and my parents would be too strict to allow me to be outside with my laptop and spending money. PS. Coffee are expensive. :P

Honestly, I'd rather stay in the comfort of my home Plus I don't drink coffee so I don't find the need going to the coffee shops / cafes. Too lazy to go out, haha

I don't have a laptop and the joys of surfing in the coffee shop is one that is denied me. Cheers!!

i like my privacy too much.. i would feel like people were looking at my screen all the time and it would be too much distraction around
