Cafes to Visit in Bangkok Part 2

Bangkok, Southeast Asia
So my bestie (partner in crime) and I went to Bangkok again sometime this August. It was another fun and fulfilling trip with lots of eating. You can visit my previous blog entry on some cafes we had visited first time round: bit.ly/bkkcafes

And this time we went back with a vengeance with more places to explore. 🙂

We booked pretty last minute and found this boutique hotel near BTS National Stadium station named Happy 3 Hotel. Overall, if you are on tight budget and looking for a clean and minimalistic hotel, then you may consider this. Do note that you have to walk a small alley to reach the main road but it is still relatively safe.

Another perk of staying there is that it is just few minutes away from this good massage place! The hot compress back thai massage was my fave.

We arrived Bangkok in the evening and we went to Siam Paragon looking for some authentic thai cuisine. Chanced upon this shop at level 1 but have no idea about the name as it is in Thai, except that it is beside Coffee Beans by Dao. Highly recommended!

 

If you are a big fan of salted egg lava croissant, you definitely have to drop by C.O.D.E pop-up store at Siam Paragon to try this salted egg lava charcoal toast! Click here to see the video of it.

Salted egg lava + shibuya toast + charcoal toast = 1000 calories! Lol

Next day, we headed to White Flower Factory located at Siam Sq 4th floor. The thai tea crepe cake with thai tea sauce is sinful but delish. But first, a thai milk tea to kick-start my day… I know, unhealthy breakfast. :p

 

 

 

Thai tea lovers, this is a must-try!

 

More cafes we went during our trip, that we did not cover the previously.

Rocket Coffeebar S49 46/12 Sukhumvit Soi 49. (At Piman 49)
This is one of the most popular cafes in which this top view picture should be familiar – you would have seen this on IG.

 

And situated opposite SkyRocket is D’Ark Cafe. The interior decor and the look/feel is the same.
Piman 49, 46 Sukhumvit Soi 49, Bangkok, Thailand.
The ice cream were visually appetizing, with a smooth and creamy texture.

 

We took a lift up and chanced upon this modern and posh place but we were simply too full to explore, Organika House. Wish I could stay here longer.

 

Another hipster place called The Commons, housed a variety of cafes and is definitely the perfect place for laidback Sundays. Finally tried Roast’s brunch and was indeed awesome.

 

 

 

The just-wake-up face

They had my stamp of approval for Huevos Rancheros and Zuchchini Walnut Pesto! They do have another branch at EmQuartier but if you wanna soak into the ambience, then The Commons branch is the option for you.

 
Next cafe was Karmakamet Diner near EmQuartier. 
The colourful cotton candy dessert that comes with strawberry ice cream and cookies at the bottom. But this was served to us without us ordering which cost us SGD16; imagined our faces when we saw the bill. 😦
 

Before that we checked out Vanilla Cafeteria; I’d still prefer their flagship store of Vanilla Garden.

 

 

Wanted to go Casa Lapin x 49 but we ended up at Casa Lapin x 26! Feeding our hungry stomach after hours of walking and shopping! We took a cab heading to 49 but we drove past 26 instead and got off on the spot haha.

 

 

 

They served good food. O.m.g the carbonara is 👍!

After which, we went to this nearby cafe named Hello Strangers Cafe.

Been to Chin Mee Chin? If you like those traditional old school cafes, you can consider visiting On Luk Yun. We cabbed there for breakfast and we finished all of the items we ordered! I even takeaway their kaya. 🙂

 
Location: 72 Charenkrung Road Khwaeng Wang Burapha Phirom, Khet Phra Nakhon, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10200, Negara Thai

Warning! Their kaya is really addictive.
That’s all folks! I can’t wait for my next BKK trip (which should be next year soon for my work trip)

Cafes To Visit in Bangkok

Bangkok, Southeast Asia

I’m sure everyone of us love going to Bangkok for a short getaway to indulge in their thai food, massage, shopping and cafe-hopping. Their sprout of cafes have definitely set a trend among its youngsters and the cafe scene is happening than before.

Went there during 2016 countdown with my best friend and we found so much joy eating and exploring the cafes there. Here’s some cafes you may consider visiting while during your vacay in bangkok.

Tips: If you plan to cafe-hop with a day, it would be good to try 1 signature dish per cafe. Spread the lunch, dessert, coffee into 3 different cafes to maximize your cafe experience. (You can’t be eating appetizer, main course, dessert, drinks in 1 cafe – unless you just want to visit that particular one. Or you have a huge stomach.)

1. Mandarin Oriental Shop
Siam Paragon 48, Oriental Ave, Bang Rak, Bangkok 10500, Thailand

 

 

You will be spoilt for choices on the variety of cafes and dining places in Siam Paragon. We were attracted by the posh ambience and cute afternoon high tea set and settled for this quickly. Look at the handbags and lipstick! So real and wonder how much effort goes into molding them.

Recommended for girlfriends hangout or a place to chill.

2. Audrey Cafe and Bistro
136/3 Soi 11 Thonglor, Vaddhana, Sukhumvit 55, Bangkok, Thailand 10110

This cafe is a sure hit amongst the ladies for its lovely decor and fancy cakes. It is the must-go cafe in Thonglor area! Their famous thai milk tea crepe cake was sold out and we had to settle for Thai Tea Sizzling Roti which was sinfully good!

We took a cab there and the driver just dropped us at the beginning of the street. Spent quite some time locating this place.

 

 

 

My greedy and happy face

The place gets a bit noisy due to the crowd and not a place to stay and chill for long.

A great place for dessert.

3. Vanilla Garden
53 Ekamai Soi 12,Sukhumvit Soi 63 10110, 10110, Thailand

This place is huge. It is like a secret garden hidden somewhere and a mysterious trail for you to walk in. The place is Japanese style and has a bake shop beside it.

Again, another taxi driver dropped us at the start of the street and we walked a long while before locating this… and google map showed this area incorrectly.

Which path will you choose?

 

This is da bomb! Prawn roe pasta.
Outdoor premises

 

 

Lovely ambience and awesome good. Though it comes with a hefty price tag. Recommended for gatherings and dates.

4. Nikko Cafe
30/18 Soi Charoen Chai, Eakkamai 12, Bangkok

This is my favourite till date. The kind of cafe for you to waste the afternoon away, chill with a book, surf with a laptop, indulge in quality me-time.

Can you take me higher?

 

Alfresco seating at second level

I’ll visit this place if I’m going bangkok again.

Recommended place for chilling and quality me-time for solo travelers.

5. Greyhound Cafe
1F J Avenue Lifestyle Mall, Thonglor Soi 15

A great cafe for those who wants to have a hearty breakfast and to chill out with family or friends. Their spicy pasta was tasty and acts as a filler for in-between meals.

 

Great place to chill and catch-up with friends.

6. Ink & Lion Cafe

The last cafe we hopped into and we walked like 1.5km just to locate this place. It has an indie vibe and has this strange cozy appeal. This is my bestie’s fave thus far.

 

Has a chess game with my bestie and I lost by one move!

Great place to chill with your friend and challenge them with this chess game. haha.

I would hope to visit bangkok and explore new cafes real soon! What’s your fave cafes in bangkok then? 🙂
