I was wondering two things about cafés I work from. I just noticed something that pretty much answers both.
- Are they happy with the clientele they are getting from having free wifi?
- How come there are so many laptops here (Specifically Starbeucks and Brulerie St-Denis on Mt-Royal)? Didn’t use to be that many.
Answer: At Starbeucks they bought an extension with multiple sockets, strapped it to some table rungs and make it possible for 6 laptop users in that corner (instead of 2) to stay indefinitely. At Brulerie they added a similar setup to the front table right in the window, doubling the users from the previous lowly two wall sockets at the back. I guess we don’t bother them tooo much.
