There are times when you just need to get out of the house and away from the office to get anything accomplished.
If you live in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, or you travel through Ferguson periodically, then this list is for you.
Free WiFi is Just a Start:
I have a list of requirements for my WiFi spots before I’ll grab my laptop and head out for a work session. My favorite places have all 5 of the features below.
- Free Wi-Fi (free)
- Good coffee with free unlimited refills (coffee)
- Good access to outlets (plugs)
- Real food…not just muffins & dessert (food)
- Easy parking (cars)
To help you decide where you want to take your computer, I am noting these features on my list below for the places that I’ve visited. I haven’t visited all of the locations personally, so they won’t all have the features rated.
If you see any free WiFi spots I’ve missed, or can give us any information about the WiFi experience on any of the places I’ve listed below, leave a comment at the end of the post. And definitely let me know if the information is wrong…a place is closed or doesn’t actually offer free WiFi.
I’ve also put together a map with the locations throughout the entire St. Louis area other than the libraries, Starbucks and the fast food chains. You can even pull up the map on your iPhone or Android phone. Simply add the map to your Google account using the ‘Add to My Maps’ link. Then pull up the map on your phone using the layers option in the Google maps app.

Corner Coffee House
free, food, cars
The coffee house is a point of pride for the locals living in Ferguson, and offers a small town homey atmosphere. The food was very good and there was plenty of space to grab a table. I was there for a business meeting and didn’t break out my laptop, so I’m not sure about the access of outlets. They do have a couple of computers for anyone to use, and both were in use the entire time I was there. My only complaints are that it was a bit smokey for me (my visit was before the smoking ban was enacted) and coffee didn’t come with refills. I expect to pay for refills at a place like Starbucks, but not for simple brewed coffee at a regular cafe.
