Even though they launched just last year, Starbucks have mushroomed all over the city. The cafes are usually sprawling, air conditioned, cushy and have wi-fi so you’ll have all the comfort you need while working. And once you order in a cuppa or two and find your own little corner, the good folks at Starbucks will just let you be. Our favourite branch to work out of is the Indiranagar one where you can take your coffee to the upstairs section and work in peace, especially during weekdays.
