Save to my favorites Saved to my favorites

With a growing industry of freelancers, start-ups, and go-it-alone gurus, a rising number of Jeddah’s workers are swapping conventional offices for digital ones. Add in business travelers and, now, more people than ever before are looking for work-friendly cafés where they can dash through projects, fueled by caffeine and good food. 

We’ve toured the city’s abundant choices of coffee shops to find out which ones provided a decent makeshift office for digital nomads. Complete with speedy Wi-Fi, ample table space, plug sockets, and work-friendly noise levels—and not forgetting decent coffee. 

Here’s our whittled-down list of outlets with everything you need to get some work done while you’re in town.

 

Ash Café

Ash Café serves up some of the best coffee in the city and knockout homemade desserts. While the café itself is compact, it is well equipped: the Wi-Fi connection is fast, and noise is kept to a background buzz. It also supports local artists by showcasing their work. For added privacy during work meetings, reserve one of the quirky booths that have been designed to look like treehouses.

Split into two levels, Medd Café is often buzzing with start-ups, meaning it can get a little active at times. It has an excellent Wi-Fi connection and even better coffee, all sourced from organic fair trade farms from across the coffee belt. The selection of organic teas is worth sampling too.
