93751 Interested |

Whether you’re a freelancer or just looking for a change of workspace, Mumbai is brimming with cafes that you can work out of. Not all are conducive to our productivity (looking at you, loud music!) and some don’t let you use their free WiFi with just a cup of coffee. So we’ve rounded up our favourite work-friendly cafes in the city that have super-fast WiFi, good food, and a happy vibe. Happy working, y’all!

Birdsong - The Organic Cafe, Bandra

Birdsong Café in Bandra is a great place for breakfast meetings, brainstorming sessions, or that blog you’ve been working on. The café is quite spread out, with charging points next to almost every table. In fact, they have a communal table where people often seat themselves and work. On most days, the wifi is fast, and you don’t get disturbed for ordering one cup of coffee or a glass of smoothie.

What To Order: Avocado and French toast, smoothies, cappuccino, pesto pasta, and risotto.

Timing: 9 am to 10.30 pm

Price: INR 1,900 for two persons

Leaping Windows Cafe, Andheri

Located on Yari Road, Versova, this comic book-themed cafe is warm, cosy, and has a laid-back vibe. You can sit uninterrupted here with a coffee for hours and enjoy high-speed free WiFi. And if you need a break, you can always head downstairs and teleport yourself to the world of comics.

What To Order: Banoffee pie, nutella pancake, pork ribs, and vanilla milkshake.

Timing: 12 noon to 12 midnight

Price: INR 1,400 for two persons

The Bagel Shop, Bandra

The hidden cafe in Pali Hill offers two basic things for a productive session: peaceful ambience and fast WiFi. If you want to work out of a space, come here because it's a popular place to do so. You can always go for their in-house bagels and salads or choose from their special East Indian options. You can either choose to sit outside or park yourself inside. FYI, the place is also pet-friendly.

What To Order: Bagel sandwiches, bagels, chocolate fudge cake, and smoothies.

Timing: 8 am to 11 pm

Price: INR 1,400 for two persons

Starbucks, Multiple Outlets

A universal cafe to work out from, this list would’ve been incomplete without including Starbucks. Most of the outlets across the city have all-day free WiFi, and plug points near the tables. We especially love Starbucks Colaba (behind the Taj Mahal Hotel in Colaba).

What To Order: Any of their coffees, sandwiches, and desserts.

Timing: 8 am to 11 pm

Price: INR 800 for two persons

Bombay Coffee House, Bandra & Fort

A classic filling English breakfast and a coffee with Wifi thrown in for good measure is what working out of Bombay Coffee House feels like. It’s a great place for work meetings and interviews in case you'd want to schedule one in this colonial-style cafe.

What To Order: Iced caramel coffee, Madrid mocha, keema pulao, croissant sandwiches, Panang curry, Irish cream coffee.

Timing: 9 am to 12 midnight

Mockingbird Cafe Bar, Churchgate

Definitely one of the most underrated cafes in Mumbai, Mockingbird Cafe Bar in Churchgate is perfect for when you’re looking to perch yourself inside a cosy cafe. With literary puns, literature book-inspired dishes on the menu, and a WiFi to work with, it makes for a fitting cafe for freelancers, and work meetings alike.

What To Order: Cottage cheese sandwich, flowerpot tiramisu, spicy Cajun chicken, flour-less chocolate fudge, and pepper hummus.

There's a whole host of holistic and healthy juices, salads and more to keep you energised as you work.
