17 Cafes In Bangkok’s Thonglor And Ekkamai

Bangkok Thonglor Cafe

Thonglor used to be just another one of those unassuming hoods in Bangkok, until its fate changed some years ago. All it took was a leap of faith by some entrepreneurs who decided to run cafes in Thonglor Seen Space, and that whole area started booming and prospering.

Today, Thonglor is widely visited by both locals and tourists – anyone who enjoys a cuppa and quiet afternoons. The Thonglor “archipelago” includes Ekkamai, a street that is littered with quaint cafes, primarily dedicated to the Japanese expats who call that area Home.

With so many cafes sprouting out one after another, Thonglor is surely the place for all cafe-hoppers. Here are 17 Cafes in Bangkok’s Thonglor And Ekkamai that we love.


Vanilla Garden – A Secret Hideout in Bangkok With A Cafe & Bakeshop

Vanilla Garden

Vanilla Garden enjoys a lavish space at Ekkamai. Like a secret hideout in a labyrinth, Vanilla Garden is lovely, peaceful and cosy. Garden benches, fountains and little corners make up the outdoors of the precinct; beautiful butterflies are often spotted, so are occasional squirrels.

It is like a scene from a storybook. We are only missing Alice here.

Home to a cafe and a desserts room, Vanilla Garden is a destination in Bangkok to note, for it is most definitely worth the visit.
