Generally speaking, the Ghanaian culture is not one you would associate with coffee drinking. Despite that, the selection of coffee shops in Accra keeps growing. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that each coffee shop in Accra has great Wi-Fi. Some have good connection but no power sockets and others simply have a very poor & slow connection.
If you are looking to take a break from your office desk, you work remotely, or simply want a space to have an important meeting, Green Views offers you a selection of five cafes that will not disappoint you with their Wi-Fi connection (we have verified it!) and of course offer a great atmosphere and varied selection of beverages & food on their menu.
Five coffee shops in Accra with great Wifi
Breakfast to Breakfast (B2B)
The greatest part about this café is the fact that it’s open 24h every day of the week, including Sundays and holidays. Even if you have to work the weirdest hours or on a day which is a holiday day, you know that B2B will always be available to you with a good Wi-Fi connection.
The downside about this place is that it can get quite noisy, apart from the fact that they always have music playing in the background which can feel pretty loud for some. If you need to carry out calls, it’s not the best environment.
It offers an indoor and outdoor sitting area, inside being spacious with a very modern and vibrant feel to it. The menu has a selection of continental dishes with prices ranging from 60ghs for a plate of pasta to 18ghs for a regular latte. The staff is friendly and service is generally fast.
Pros: fast wifi connection, spacious sitting area, fast service
Breakfast to Breakfast (B2B)
If you are looking for a spot which you can walk to from Green views (or just a 5 minute drive) Theia House is your spot. This is a little getaway spot from the chaos of Accra. Its outside area is the best part, full of plants and simply tranquility. It makes you feel as if you are in a completely different city.
It’s true that their Wi-Fi works with vouchers (you can’t always get everything perfect right!) but has a fast connection, and the environment just makes up for it! The quietness of the place, unlike B2B, just makes it a perfect place for meetings, calls, or any activity that requires concentration.
On the menu you can find a variety of beverages with a coffee (latte) price of approximately 15ghs, a selection of pastries ranging with a price of 15ghs for a plain croissant and many vegetarian dishes, vegan & gluten-free options.
The inside sitting area is very cozy, the kind of space that could remind you of your own living room. The cool part about it is the section they have with books, some that are on sale and others you can simply grab and read if you get tired of working on your laptop or have finished your meeting and want to hang around a bit more.
Pros: quietness, friendly staff, vegetarian/vegan options, atmosphere
Cons: food can be pricier than other coffee shops in the area, Wi-Fi with voucher
Jamestown Coffee Warehouse
One of the coolest hang out spots in Osu with its own local coffee roasting as well as some of the best Ghanaian coffee brands. The roasted coffee aromas wafting through the air as soon as you enter gives it away! The aesthetics of the place definitely add to the overall experience. It gives off a hipster atmosphere, almost as if you have teletransported yourself to a café in London.
You will see a lot of people working on their laptops, coming to hang out with their group of friends, enjoy the terrace space or their delicious food. We recommend you try one of their brunch options (savory salmon crepe or the blueberry flapjack), which not only are delicious but perfect for an instagram post to show off to your friends 😉
The prices are the average prices you can find at Accra cafes, 12ghs for a latte, 40ghs for an avocado bacon bagel for example, and their Wi-Fi is pretty good! (no voucher, although their internet does tend to be down on occasions so better call them beforehand to verify).
It is a pretty good place to work remotely from, but it does tend to get busy (especially on weekends, Sundays for brunch) so it can be noisy. Apart from that, great atmosphere with a great selection of food and locally roasted coffee.
Pros: fast Wi-Fi, friendly staff with fast service, pleasant environment
Cons: can get busy/noisy, internet tends to be down on some occasions
Jamestown Coffee Warehouse
Address: Plot 7B West Light, Accra
Opening hours: Mon-Fri 7am – 7pm, Sat & Sun: 8am-7pm
If you are looking for somewhere that opens early in the morning, this wouldn’t be your best option as they do open pretty late (12pm).
This place is like a small green oasis in the middle of a busy city. They have a wellness club attached to it as well and a hidden back garden that is beautifully decorated.
The space is a little smaller than other cafes mentioned on this article but it doesn’t tend to get as busy (it tends to get busier towards the evening or weekends), which makes it a pretty quiet place to work from with very good, fast Wi-Fi connection (no vouchers!).
The prices are similar to the rest, 18ghs for a latte and 15ghs for a croissant, with friendly staff and fast service.
Pros: fast/ stable wifi, quiet, friendly staff, pleasant environment
Cons: food can be pricier than other coffee shops in the area
Kukun is a cafe, bar, and co-working space. The atmosphere and food are great, with a fast Wi-Fi connection. The only downfall is that it does work with 1h time limit vouchers.
It tends to get busy, but despite of its business it does remain a quiet space to work from. It is not as spacious as B2B café for example and you may feel a little invaded with your personal space because you may find yourself having to sit next to someone if there are not enough individual tables. On the bright side, it does have an amazing outdoor area which you can also work from.
Prices remain within the price range of cafes, with a great selection of platters (including vegetarian options). Staff are friendly but service is not as fast as other cafes.
Pros: fast Wi-Fi connection, pleasant environment
Cons: Wi-Fi with voucher
