The Workplace Cafe Banawa: Updated Review, Opening Hours and More

The Workplace Cafe Banawa is a coworking space located at the 1st Autogas gas station on the main R. Duterte Street in Banawa, Guadalupe. Targeted mostly at students The Workplace Cafe Banawa features affordable hourly billing and great opening hours: it’s always open except for the mornings.

All branches of The Workplace Cafe generally offer everything you need to stay put for a while: a whole menu of affordable food options, comfortable height-adjustable chairs (except for the cubicles), a beanbag napping area and a clean CR (rest room). Electrical outlets are plenty and support a variety of plugs. Wifi is good. Read more about facilities below.

The atmosphere is usually focused. Depending on where you sit sunlight can be sparse but the rooms are generally well-lit.  In terms of personal space we felt that this branch is the most generous one of the three existing branches, making for comfortable working. The cubicles for making calls are also the most  spacious ones.

We’ve last been to The Workspace Cafe in Banawa in April 2019.
