What's your Wifi password please?


With so many young professionals going freelance and more companies adopting a culture of remote working, lunch meetings have become a staple part of our working world - because everyone needs a meeting to finalise shit nowadays. 

Here's a list of work-lunch friendly places for when you need to sit down with a laptop and have a long chat.

1. Mint Cafe, Sliema

You've got a new client – rather than bombard them with dietary questions before booking a place for your working lunch, play it cool and go for Mint. This cute seaside cafe in Sliema caters for coeliac, vegan or people with lactose intolerance. Easy.

Book in advance – preferable
Acoustics – it's quiet enough
