Bangkok is one of our favourite places and if you’ve been there before, it’s probably the same for you. Visitors always relish the chance to enjoy delicious and spicy Thai food. But after having tom yum, mango Thai salad and pad Thai, I am sure everyone can do with some desserts.
Below, we take a tour to 5 of Bangkok’s favourite dessert spots.
Scones by Anothai
Scones at level two of Central World is a perfect place to take a break after shopping. Their scones tea set (B195) is very reasonable. You get two pieces of scones – they come in flavours such as butterfly pea lavender, rose petal, blueberry, green tea and red bean, lemon and prune – with organic jam, fresh cream and coffee/tea.
Level 2, Central World
Ratchaprasong Intersection, Patumwan
Nearest BTS: Chit Lom
Let Them Eat Cake
Bangkok is known for many things, but nobody associates it with good French desserts and pastries. That was what I thought too, until I went to Let Them Eat Cake.
Sukhumvit Soi 20 seems an unlikely place for a French patisserie, but this is exactly where Let Them Eat Cake – a dessert cafe with homemade pastries and sweets – is located. I’d go so far as to say that no one should leave Bangkok without coming here.
Sukhumvit Soi 20, Bangkok
Tel: +66 02 663 4667
Nearest BTS: Asok
Sweet Hound, by the folks behind the famous Greyhound Cafe, serves “high fashion” waffles. Besides the original Waffles (B90) with butter and maple syrup, there are also interesting flavours like Banana & Pineapple Flambe with Cognac (B160) and Red Velvet Waffles (B160).
Also try the Strawberry Crumble (B135), topped with vanilla ice cream and raspberry sauce; and the Sea Salt Caramel Chocolate Cake (B140), a new addition on the sweets menu.
G Floor at J Avenue Lifestyle Mall
Thonglor Soi 15, Bangkok
Tel: +66 02 712 6547
Nearest BTS: Thong Lo
After You is a very popular dessert spot that is known for their ‘Shibuya’ Honey Toast (B175). For something different, try the Sticky Toffee Toast (B175) or Matcha Toast (B195). Besides the signature toasts, they also have a whole range of breakfast items like Buttermilk Pancakes (B125), Maple Frnech Toast (B175) and Baked Egg Toast (B175).
Khlong Toei Nuea Vadhana

Crepes & Co
Crepes & Co is a Bangkok institution. Other than being known for their sweet and savoury crepes, it also has a comprehensive menu serving Greek, Moroccan and Spanish food. But I almost always come here just for the crepes. With so many tempting choices, I find it necessary to skip the main courses and just focus on the crepes.
59/4 Soi Langsuan, (Langsuan Soi 1)
Ploenchit Road, Lumpini, Patumwan
Tel: +66 02 652 0208
