Six amazing cafes in Uzan Bazaar, Guwahati for Freelancers and Digital Nomads

Guwahati is the biggest town in North East India and travellers who venture around this region, end up in this city more than once. Exploring North East India has becoming more and more mainstream and since the time the road to Myanmar has opened from Manipur, the destination has caught interest of many individuals.

Guwahati is an okayish destination for backpackers. There is only one hostel where solo travellers can stay before moving to other regions. As a freelancer, you’ll need a decent place to work from and if you can spare a few bucks for a decent cup of coffee then Uzan Bazaar is the best place to be.

Why Uzan Bazaar – You may be wondering that Guwahati being such a big city, why am I focussing only on Uzan Bazaar cafes. Well, working from Uzan Bazaar Cafes has a lot of advantages. There are multiple cafes in this area so you can go to some other place if the one you visited doesn’t have a place to sit.

Secondly, Uzan Bazaar is close to railway station and accessible from most of the hotels in the town. You can easily catch a bus or an Ola Bike, put the location of the café and reach there in minutes.

So without further ado, here are the best cafes of Uzan Bazaar from where you can work from.

11th Avenue Bistro

Probably the biggest and most popular cafes in Uzan Bazaar, 11th Avenue Bistro has big seating space so you’ll find a place easily. All the seats have charging points and they have a seating space in balcony too. It is a very freelancer favourite café in Guwahati with free wifi, nice music and ample lighting.

The café is present right next to 11th Avenue Bistro. Table Talk Café is nice if you want to finish some of your work in the morning and then leave for sightseeing.

    Love working from a cosy cafe and so handy if they have charging points at the tables. The Steaming Mug sounds perfect.

    I get easily distracted working from a cafe – especially if it has beautiful decor or great views! These do sound really cool though, especially 11th Avenue Bistro – charging, wifi, pizza – what more can you ask for!

    I like the look of these funky cafés in Uzan Bazaar you selected and the food looks great too! That’s really handy to know this is a strategic location considering its proximity to the station as well. I’ve been curious to visit Myanmar one day so it’s quite a revelation you could travel from there to North India. I bet that’s a stunning trip!

    I didn’t know Guwahati has such quirky and colourful Cafes. Hope to visit Uzan Bazar when we are in those parts next.

    I love the variety of food options available. Super useful if you’re planning to spend enough time to sit at a cafe working and to have a coffee and later lunch. You always share great options for digital nomads!
