Valley Cafés with Free Wi-Fi

For those of us with laptops who enjoy a good cup of coffee and a break from the office, below are some café favorites with Wi-Fi internet access (other than Starbucks which now charges by the hour)…


Olive & Ivy Marketplace
7135 E. Camelback Rd. #195
Scottsdale, AZ 85251
A happening nightspot and restaurant by night, a cozy café with free Wi-Fi and yummy baked goods by morning. You really can’t beat Olive & Ivy’s great location in the midst of Scottsdale Fashion Square and the amazing Sam Fox cuisine. In the Marketplace, guests can enjoy an abundant variety of baked goods, including scones, rustic loaves, and gourmet espresso and coffee — hand-crafted and poured northern Italian style by highly skilled baristas. Stop in for a light or hearty breakfast or tasty lunch where you can choose hot or cold specialty sandwiches, gourmet salads and house-made gelato!

The Village Coffee Roastery
8120 N. Hayden Rd, # E104
Scottsdale, AZ 85258
Just around the corner from the office, this best kept secret and traditional coffee spot dishes out everything for the morning meal, including amazing croissants, fresh bagels, smoothies, breakfast burritos and a one-of-a-kind Chai Latte! For those anti-morning people, enjoy the full lunch menu. The Wi-Fi internet is free and if you don’t have a portable laptop, browse the web on The Village Coffee Roastery’s available desktop.

Hava Java
3166 E Camelback Rd
Phoenix, AZ 85016
If you are a coffee connoisseur, this one is a must-try. Along with having free Wi-Fi, the espresso beans are unbeatable and are available to take home. There is a large selection of teas and the baked goods are très delish; do try the buttery scones. If you become a fan, be sure to pick up a punch card to get your tenth drink free!

  1. Such a smart thing for these indy shops to do. i cant stand that Starbucks charges. a coffee costsa billion bucks and now this. i think Postino and La Grande Orange alsop have free wifi.

  2. san fran is one of my favorite cities b/c of this very reason – – coffee shops/cafes – endless wi-fi, ahhh…. here in the valley, coffee plantation is great!

  3. Good to know! Starbucks makes me so mad. Even if you do think, ok I’m here, fine I’ll pay the $10 to get online. Well YOU CAN’T. You have to create an account online at TMobile first. So essentially you’d have to go back home, create the account with TMobile and then come back to use it. Stupid huh? So let’s all support these other coffee shops and their free wifi!

  4. I used to go to CupZ back in my ASU heyday. But Starbucks charges by the hour?? Hmm, why go there when you can go elsewhere that doesn’t charge? I mean, there are tons of coffee places in general…

  5. I believe Sonoma Coffee Cafe (the one that Melissa blogged about a little while back) has free Wi-Fi too…it’s a really cute and comfy spot (with tables that can actually fit a laptop, unlike Starbucks teeny ones).

  6. This is great to know. I am all about Olive & Ivy, a quick e-mail check and a cup of joe and then off shopping. I think what does it for me is the ambiance and its location–in the heart of happening downtown Scottsdale.

  7. Great! I cannot believe that starbucks is charging! thats out of control! not only do they charge you an arm and a leg for coffee or a latte but internet too! Id much rather go to a better coffee spot!
