Looking for a new workbench? Here are few Wi-Fi enabled coffee shops in Kolkata


One of the wireless technology inventions that have been attracting plenty of attention is the Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity). Apart from rich coffees and creamy cookies, this trade name for the popular wireless internet connectivity plays a major role at small and independent cafes and restaurants to attract a large number of customers.

Lately when I was planning to move to a new working space, I decided of visiting coffee shops in my city – Kolkata! Every time when my brain is overloaded with tons of thoughts and a feel of boredom, I change my environment. This certainly helps me bring new types of input and stimulation, which in turn stimulates my creativity and inspiration in my work.

It sounds counter-intuitive, but working from a bustling coffee shop can be less distracting than working from a quiet office. Being surrounded by awesome team and office-mates means being interrupted for water cooler chats and work questions. Being interrupted kills productivity. The coffee shop environment combines the benefit of anonymity with the dull buzz of exciting activity.

Talking about coffee shops in Kolkata, it’s a boon for budding entrepreneurs, young journalists and students as they can go about their business meetings, assignments and work in general over a brewing cup of energizing coffee.

Here are few outlets that I visited last weekend.
