Guwahati, one of the fastest growing cities in India, is also the largest city of Assam. One thing is for sure, when in Guwahati, a traveller will never feel bored or be in want for good food. Like everywhere these days, people—young and old—are always looking for good places to eat and have fun. Listed here are best six cafes in Guwahati where you can hangout with friends and also try some real good food. Also, did I mention ‘easy on the pocket’? Bon Appétit.

Game N’ Grill, Khanapara
Writings on one of the walls says “Gamers Don’t Die, They Respawn”. Yes, that is the attitude at the Game N’ Grill. Here dining and fun go hand in hand. For no-fuss food, fun at the indoor gaming zone and pool table, and for a price that is easy on the pockets as well. Cost for two 400, closed on Fridays.

Coffee's great at BrewBakes

BrewBakes, Six Mile
This one has songs written all over—literally. Framed song lyrics are a big part of the decor, so is the uncluttered seating arrangement. Last thing you’d want while eating is getting jabbed by a fellow diner. From the humble dish of fries to flamboyant sizzlers, BrewBakes does it all. Cost for two 500.

11th Avenue Cafe Bistro, Uzan Bazaar
This one’s for book lovers and for those in need of serious caffeine fix. From cafe bites like chicken nuggets to comfort food like pizzas and pasta, the cafe’s got it covered. Serves great breakfast as well. Cost for two 650.

The Bean Journal, Uzan Bazaar
For a quiet evening with friends and some unpretentious food, hang out at The Bean Journal. Here good food and promp service go hand in hand. There’s nothing more off-putting than having to wait for the food to come. Not the case at The Bean Journal. Cost for two 600.

The Corner Cafe, Uzan Bazaar
From India to Chinese to Italian, grab some of the best bites in town here at The Corner Cafe. Adding street food to cafe bites was a good choice it seems because their pakoras sell like hot cakes. Good food and quick service is what’s pulling crowd to this place. Cost for two 850.
