If you know me well enough, you'll know that cafes are my thing. I have a soft spot for them. To be exact, my ideal "lazy" weekend consists of checking out new cafes and collecting lifestyle shots around the city.
There are a bunch of different cafes and new openings around Bangkok so here's a small list of some of the places I've been to so far. I hope you enjoy them!
(Roast (The Commons)
One of my personal favorites because it is such a reliable option. They have a good selection of brunch and lunch options as well as desserts. My favorites: Nutella french toast and strawberry waffles with vanilla ice cream. Not only are they photogenic (and social-media worthy) but they also taste as good as they look.
Address: The Commons 335 Sukhumvit 55, Thong Lo 17 Alley
Slow Room by Room 111
The main concept here is to provide customers with a space where they can wind down and escape the busy city life (hence the name "slow room"). The cafe has no wifi/power outlet, which is a pretty rare occurrence for cafes in general. They have a decent selection of coffees (including cold brew!) and their flourless chocolate cake is a must.
Address: 399/5 Silom Soi 7 Bangrak
This place is the most photogenic "cafe" I've been to in a while. It is a modern glass cubicle with wooden frames surrounded by lush trees and flowers. The cafe boasts its organic spa products and (somewhat healthy) drinks. Personally, I'm not quite a huge fan of it. The aesthetic doesn't fit together too well in person and the space is not very practical.
Address: 9/2 Klang Alley, Khwaeng Khlong Tan Nuea
I visited this cozy place on a rainy afternoon and it was such a perfect combination. There are many food and drink options (mostly a fusion of Japanese-Thai) as well as many seating options. Their food are quite decent but I'd definitely recommend their crepes (note: one crepe serves about two but you might not want to share it).
