A dessert heaven for those with a sweet tooth, Mr. Jones’ Orphanage in Bangkok is decorated with fun soft toys with a low-ceiling whimsical interior, supposedly modelled after a children’s orphanage.
Fret not, Mr Jones’ Orphanage actually got its name from a children’s book and the main goal of this dessert cafe is to instil nostalgia and send you back to your warm and carefree childhood.
By now, Mr Jones’ Orphanage should be no stranger if you frequent Bangkok. We, too, are no exception. Every time we visit Bangkok, we find ourselves hooked in by the unique interior that stood out amongst the edgier high fashion shops in Siam Centre.
Every cosy wooden booth has an adorable teddy bear awaiting your company, and we found fun in such simple joys.
Sure, not everything tastes fantastic here. We were disappointed a few times, but in general, the cakes on the menu are extremely affordable and the menu ranges from decadent chocolate mud pies to fruity crepes and waffles. There is something for every dessert lover here.
While the Strawberry Sponge Cake (100 baht, S$4) looked a tad ordinary, the cake itself sure wasn’t. Digging into it was like cutting into spongy perfection. The cake layer was light yet extremely delicious. The acidity of the strawberry and the sauce lifted this amazing slice of heaven to the next level.
We also had the Red Velvet Cake (120 baht, S$4.80) which has a nice balance of tart and sweetness from the gorgeous red cake layer and the cream cheese frosting.
Mr. Jones’ Orphanage is somewhere we know we will always return to when in Bangkok. The whimsical interior and abundance of teddy bears are sure mood lifters, and if you haven’t already visited, mark this place down for your next Bangkok trip!
