Top 5 Must-Visit Cafés When You Go Bangkok
By Darren, January 22, 2018
Who doesn’t love café food? For the love of eggs and coffee, we would sometimes even travel out of our way to try the café that we heard or saw on social media (admit it!). We won’t judge you for that, as we’re guilty in our own ways when it comes to food-hunting.
We all know that Bangkok is famous for its night markets and street food. You can literally get a cha yen or basil pork rice on every corner of the street. I’m sure we would never get bored of those, but if you have some time to spare and would like something different, we have a list of cafés that we recommend for your next trip to Bangkok.
Roast @ The Commons

Located on the highest floor at The Commons, this café offers indoors seating as well as outdoors. If you don’t mind the wind ruining your hair, you can choose to take the outdoor seats and have a go at the breezy area. They also have a little piece of lawn at the side good for photo-taking.

Casa Lapin can be translated from the French words which means House of Rabbits, although there are no real rabbits here. If you love taking photos, you’re in for a treat as you will be greeted by a beautiful flower shop when you walk into the store, and the interior design of this café consists of high ceilings, red brick walls, wooden floors and large windows which allows ample sunlight shining into the place to make your photos insta-worthy. They serve great coffee with a variety both local and international single origin beans, and also Drip and French Press coffee.

Situated in what was an old warehouse and factory compound before, the Jam Factory is now an all-in-one café that also features an art gallery, a bookstore, a home décor store, and home to Duangrit Bunnag Architect Limited, one of Thailand’s best architecture company. More amazingly, this place was rebuilt by Duangrit Bunnag himself. This wonderful place is sure to let you immerse into deep thoughts while sipping on the fresh aroma of the coffee.

This elegant and majestic café will make you imagine how dining in the royal palace is like. They serve an extensive amount of Western and Thai fusion food that you will be spoiled for choices. Interestingly, the theme of this particular café seemed to be ‘Flower’, as not only will you see cakes designed like flower pots, many dishes are created and arranged in a floral pattern too.

This famous dessert spot should be widely known by now, and as a big-time sweet tooth, we strongly recommend this sugary heaven to those who have not been here yet. With more than 20 outlets situated all around Bangkok, it is very easy to locate one of the stores.
