A café table of one's own
For years, Gabriel Dancause, a 36-year-old freelance computer programmer, made a pretty good living without changing out of his pajamas.
He'd get up in the morning, make himself coffee, grab his laptop and work on the couch.
When that got too lonely, he'd get dressed early and head out in tje hopes of snagging a prime seat in the local coffee shop — next to the plugs.
And so, along with a fellow freelancer, he rented an empty storefront on Montreal's Saint-Laurent Boulevard, and opened a cafe designed specifically for workers in the "gig economy."
The idea is to buy the time, not necessarily the coffee. And to find community in a solitary pursuit.
You're free to bring your own food and coffee or buy them on site.
