Coffee Shops are integral to a city that is home to a huge public university, of course Baton Rouge has a few coffee shops where you can get coffee, meet with friends, read a book, and draw in your notebook.
- Highland Coffee is on Chimes Street, right across the street from the LSU campus, and thus dominated by all manner of students. The WiFi at Highland Coffee is kind of unreliable; they even have the wireless access point attached to a light switch so you can reboot it when necessary.
- Perks Coffee & Tea - located at 2008 Perkins Avenue between the Perkins Overpass and City Park, across the street from Zeeland Market. Perk's has plenty of indoor seating as well as a pleasant little patio, complete with a little fountain and banana trees. Part of the patio is covered, so you can even sit out there when it's raining. Free WiFi.
- Coffee Call (3132 College Dr) is open 24 hours and serves beignets.
- CC's community coffee - Baton Rouge Locations Website Page - see list for ones that have free wi-fi. Community Coffee (wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Community_Coffee) is a local chain. They have a total of 33 coffee house locations, all in Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Lafayette, and on the north shore.
- Brew Ha Ha - Located at the eastern end of Government street; has a myspace profile and is indexed by 225 Magazine. Looks like a nice spot. (Here's a photo.)
