Categories: Unscrewed

Whether you're working on your screenplay or just Facebook trolling, you need a break from that dark box you call an apartment. Sometimes it's good to pack up the laptop and head for one of the numerous cafés with free Wifi where you can let wine, that noble social lubricant, slick those creative wheels.

Yup, forget about coffee. Here are our favorite spots around town for multitasking -- where we can sit solo and sip a glass of wine while we work.

Epistrophy
This Nolita gem has a vintage feel and a firmly Italian menu offering breakfast, paninis and "dinner food" (salads, pastas and mains). The wine list is mostly Old World, predominantly Italian, with a couple of Cali Pinots in the mix. Wifi is only available Monday through Friday, 11-6 p.m., preventing evening camping and encouraging unplugged nighttime drinking and dining. Of course, nobody can stop you from fiddling with your iPhone all night. 200 Mott Street, 212-966-0904

Café Minerva
A bright café with enormous windows, Minerva is a welcome respite from small, gloomy NYC flats. It is a popular spot for writers and small groups, opening early to serve cappuccino and breakfast, followed by lunch and Italian specialties throughout the day. Their 20 wines for $20 (yes, 750ml bottles!) are a steal. Drink up and let the prose flow. 302 West 4th Street, 212-242-4800

Berkli Parc
This newcomer to the Allen and Delancey corner is a No-Cal inspired café that feels like Silicon Valley with every patron logged-in, head down and hard at work. The usual coffee and pastries are on offer, supplemented by California inspired salads, soups and sandwiches. Wine options are minimal, but Cali and NY brews are also available. 63 Delancey Street, 888-727-0853
