Established in July 2014, Old Hen Coffee Bar is a relatively newcomer in the local café scene. Located next to La’ Coffee in the Rangoon Road neighbourhood, Old Hen offers the standard cappuccino, latte and flat white, but the must-try is its signature cold brew – which is extremely satisfying on a hot day.
So, why the name ‘Old Hen’? We do not know either, and sadly, there is no juicy story behind its catchy name. But that is fine, because we love to seek beauty in random trivia like that. Besides, the name comes along with a cute logo of an illustration of – well, you got it – a hen.
Old Hen Coffee Bar is a cosy unit that sits at Rangoon 88, a SoHo building along Rangoon Road. What may seem like a small and unassuming unit is actually an inviting space that you can retreat to when you need a coffee break, or when you need somewhere quiet to catch up on your emails or to read your newest issue of Kinfolk.
If you need some snacks, why not get a slice of Red Velvet Cake? Old Hen Coffee Bar gets their daily supply of fresh bakes from the highly popular Kreme Couture Bakery, so you know your dessert will be nothing short of fantastic. Other quick fixes include sandwiches and wraps of the day.
We spoke with the team of young and exuberant owners of Old Hen Coffee Bar, and learned that they received training at a reputable barista school in Bangkok. While it is indeed a decent cuppa, there is much to be improved but we believe their passion will shine through and we already foresee a pool of loyal customers who work in the area, and friends who’d come from all parts of the island to render support.
Well, we always love people who turn passion into work, for they will give nothing but their best.
