While strolling down a less populated part of Bangkok, we stumbled upon a small and quirky cafe – Bangkoku Cafe, which immediately sparked our interest. Located just beside one of Bangkok’s most popular old-school barbers – Good Old Days Barber Shop – we were delighted by the cosy cafe’s reasonably priced drinks.
Sprawled on the walls are various menu items, from typical coffee to some very interesting alcoholic cocktails. Although this cafe has a limited food menu of a few cakes and sweet treats, the great drinks were enough to keep us happy.
With so many overly-publicised big cafes in Bangkok, it was nice to see a simple and humble cafe like Bangkoku Cafe.
A non-alcoholic drink here costs THB35 to THB50 (S$1.40 to S$2), with frappes just THB10 more (S$0.25). Served to us in beautiful mason jars, Bangkoku Cafe offers a nice an intimate setting for us to rest and relax after a long day of sightseeing and shopping.
The Thai Iced Tea (THB45, S$1.80) is a typical choice but with no regrets. We also had the Lychee B*tch (THB90, S$3.60), an alcoholic cocktail with a spunky name that was extra refreshing and can also be served ice blended, upon request.
We tried the cake of the day that came in a cute mini portion, just enough to satisfy our sweet tooth.
For an extremely unpretentious cafe experience, Bangkoku Cafe pretty much fits the bill. Great drinks, simple cakes, no crazy crowd.
