Workplace Cafe Banawa – Budget Co-working Space For Students and Professionals

Workplace Cafe Banawa

Welcome! If you’re new to my blog, then nice to meet you! I’m Hannah, a work-at-home mom who’s always online, thanks to my fast internet connection. But if our internet connection’s playing a joke on me, here’s what I normally do – I go to the nearest coffee shop to work. Sadly, a famous coffee shop with enough power outlets offers only 2 hours of internet usage (not sure if this is still the case today). It isn’t an ideal option so I got myself a membership card to another brand of coffee shop. It offers unlimited wifi usage but unfortunately, it has only 1 or 2 power outlets. Whenever I need to be near my daughter’s school because of school activities within the day, a nearby local brand of coffee shop is a good option but sadly, their limited parking space led me to accidentally scratched my car.  So to be honest, I really wished a new place will open in the South area of Cebu City that is perfect for work-at-home moms like me. This year, thankfully, my wish came true – the opening of The Workplace Cafe in Banawa!

The Workplace Cafe is a co-working space-cum-coffee shop which has become popular among college students and professionals. It provides a good place to be productive, with reliable high-speed fiber internet, an abundance of power outlets, bookstands and ancillary services such as printing, scanning and photocopying. At the same time, it also offers the ambience of a coffee shop, with comfortable seats and a menu of pasta, all day breakfast meals, pastries, health drinks and coffee to feed the mind.

The new Workplace Cafe in Banawa has a seating capacity of 120 people, their biggest branch to date. The place is actually better than the first branch because of its:

  • ample parking
  • offered cubicles
  • lockers
  • power nap station (yes they have bean bags for power naps, so cute right? see image below)

The interiors are also impressive, very much homey and while I was there, I can really focus on working. I love the lightings, there are spots which are instagrammable as well.
