NorthPark's hidden gem is upstairs behind the movie theater, far removed from the loud and crowded food court.

Spacious booths at this Deep Ellum late-night staple offer plenty of room to spread out your laptop. Coffee here is plentiful, but there's also kombucha and craft beer on tap; a varied menu of eggs, crepes, sandwiches and some killer French toast will keep you fueled. [Photo: Margo Sivin]

An excellent place to hunker down with the laptop for a few hours midday; skip the wings and go for something you can eat with a fork instead. Plenty of local craft beer on tap, but maybe save the potent Lakewood Temptress for after your work is done. [Photo: Angry Dog/Facebook]

9. Cafe Brazil

6420 N Central Expy
Dallas, TX 75206

An ever-popular lunch spot for its lineup of generously sized, tasty sandwiches named after area streets -- including the Belmont Chicken with genoa salami and basil -- there's also a huge variety of non-alcoholic beverages including sodas, juices, espresso and iced coffee.
