28 Best Bangkok Cafes – The Only Guide You’ll Ever Need

Bangkok Cafe Guide

Bangkok always surprises us with its cafes. The Thai city is amazing. Despite the messiness and occasional chaos, Bangkok gives us many reasons to return – and one of them is its cafe trend.

Dessert cafes, coffee specialty houses, all-day brunch food… everything you desire, the Thai city probably has it. We consider ourselves lucky to be based in Singapore, and Bangkok is just a two-hour flight away.

For 2016′s edition, we bring to you some of our favourites, as well as the trending ones in the Thai City. Bookmark this list of Best Bangkok Cafes for your next holiday to the Land of Smiles!

After You


This dessert cafe should be no stranger to you by now. After You first started in 2007, and it has been synonymous with Shibuya Toasts ever since. The Shibuya Honey Toast (THB175) is what After You got famous for, and fast forward many years, queues still form outside its various outlets every day for this amazing dessert.

If you haven’t been, add this in to your itinerary. The biggest and prettiest outlet is the one at Siam Square One, but a queue prevails.

Audrey Cafe


One of the prettiest cafes and among the most popular is Audrey, a predominantly monochrome cafe with cascading vines and fairy lights.

Audrey has a menu that serves both Western and Thai, and they have pretty decent desserts too. The one at Thonglor is our favourite one, but other outlets can be found at major shopping malls in Bangkok such as Central Embassy, Siam Centre and EmQuartier.

Casa Lapin

Casa Lapin Bangkok


Casa Lapin has this irresistibly inviting vibe that draws us back all the time. Apart from its fragrant brew and good third wave coffee, Casa Lapin X49 at an alley on Sukhumvit Soi 49 in Thonglor boasts an intimate space that is photogenic and cosy, and one where you can sit back and enjoy some quiet me-time at.

Ceresia Coffee


Owned by Venezuelan sisters Marian and Lucia Aguilar and Lucia’s husband Bret Asavaroengchai, Ceresia Coffee Roaster is a spot where you can drop by for a cuppa, and have a discussion about coffee with the passionate owners. This boutique roaster takes great pride in serving only the best coffee.

Case in point: They roast their beans in small batches so as to maintain the original flavours from their origins.

CODE (Cafe of Dessert Enthusiasts) in Bangkok has been making waves on social media for serving these gorgeous lava thick toast and flavoured croissants. While Shibuya-style thick toasts are not new, Code has reinvented it by coming up with a lava rendition.

CODE’s Lava Thick Toast (THB165 – THB175) are available in four flavours: salted egg yolk, Thai tea, matcha and chocolate. The cafe also has other desserts such as Bingsu and Thai Tea cake.

The original location at The Jas Ramintra is very inaccessible (it’s near to Don Mueang International Airport), so you will be glad to know that it has opened a pop-up cafe at Siam Paragon (G Floor, opposite Häagen-Dazs).

D'ark by Phillip Di Bella


D’ark is an increasingly popular spot among locals, and the outlet at EmQuartier is especially sexy with its dark interior. There are both alfresco and indoor seats, but either way, you are in for a treat. Of course they have good coffee, but what we really love is their desserts.

D'ark Cafe Bangkok

Try the Tiramisu (that is assembled in front of you) and the homemade sorbet in an assortment of flavours (the coconut one is the best!). They also have regular food menu that comprises salads, brunch items and pastas.

Featherstone Bisto Cafe

Featherstone Cafe


Featherstone Bistro Cafe & Lifestyle Shop is one of the prettiest finds in Thonglor. It is like an enchanted forest – of butterflies, stained glass and the dreamiest flowers hanging from the ceiling, Featherstone is a must-visit when in Bangkok.

Featherstone Cafe Pizza

Its food menu is not the most interesting, though. The pastas were pretty mediocre, but pizzas were not too bad and we enjoyed ours. What you must order is the signature drinks. We had the Purple Lullaby, and it really is a work of art; just look at the ice cubes!

Wed to Mon: 10.30am – 10pm

Fill in the Blank

Fill in the Blank Cafe


This is one of those residential and inconspicuous cafes, but Fill in The Blank is more than worthy of that special trip down. It is one of our favourites to be at; those quaint cafes with warm sunlight streaming in, and serenity that everyone needs.

The gorgeous space is one to relax in over a cup of coffee. Or maybe, for a change, go for the mega huge cup of Thai Tea that costs THB140. Oh, how we loved that!

Located at Sukhumvit Soi 49, Gram is a favourite among the Japanese expats who live in the neighbourhood. Its menu is segmented into eggs, bagels, salads, burgers, pancakes, French toasts and pastas. Prices range from THB 120 to 340. As you can tell, it is a pretty affordable option.

Gram also has another outlet at EmQuartier.

Greyhound Cafe

Greyhound Cafe Chicken Wings


Greyhound Cafe is a pioneer in Bangkok’s cafe scene. The household name is popular even among locals, and despite its success, prices remain reasonable, and the food is consistent and reliable.

Hand & Heart

Hand and Heart Cafe


This minimalist cafe is predominantly white and its signature frame is now a common sight on Instagram. Fuss-free yet cosy, Hand & Heart Cafe serves a small selection of cakes and drinks.

While nothing tasted exceptional, an afternoon here over coffee and some read is lovely.

Ink And Lion

Ink & Lion

#12 INK & LION

A quiet haunt that sits unassumingly in the Ekkamai neighbourhood, Ink & Lion is a vintage-styled coffee shop that combines the simplicity of quality brew, vinyl on loop, and an art gallery. These guys here take their coffee very seriously, so you know you are in for the real deal.

Kaizen Coffee Co

Kaizen Coffee


This inconspicuous coffee outlet in Ekkamai has very good coffee. The latte art is consistent, and even better when you get a mocha.

It may not be the most comfortable cafe to rest your legs at, but Kaizen Coffee Co has to be a pit stop for some great cuppa when in Bangkok.

Karmakamet Interior


Karmakamet Diner needs no introduction. This popular space is always at the top of mind when people talk about Bangkok cafes. The space is well-furnished with a rustic touch, with so much thoughts put into every detail.

Karmakamet Strawberry in Cloud

The brunch items range from THB270 for a Egg White Fritata to THB490 for a Full Breakfast. The must-try dessert is the super photogenic Strawberry In The Clouds – strawberry shortcake with rainbow cotton candy (THB390).

Library Cafe


We fell in love with Library Cafe at Sukhumvit Soi 24 as soon as we stepped in. Quaint and comfy, this is a place where you can hang out and chit-chat with friends, or to simply spend the afternoon reading a book while sipping a latte.

Bangkok 10110, Thailand
Tel: +66 02 259 2878

Mr Jones Orphanage

Mr Jones Orphanage


Contradicting its name, Mr Jones Orphanage is one whimsical bear-themed cafe with a dessert shrine that will take your breath away with its huge selection of homemade goodies.

We can never make up our minds whenever we come here, because how is one supposed to only pick one from this crazy selection?!

On the desserts page, the Matcha Pudding (THB 165) and Passion Fruit Pavlova (THB 170) make lovely endings to your meal.

One Ounce For Onion

One Ounce For Onion BKK


Forget about waffles with ice-cream or soft serve. Try waffles with popsicles. This is revelation, and exactly why we love One Ounce for Onion. Contrary to its theme, this Japanese-influenced cafe has no onions, but a menu that is chockfull of art and creativity.

One Ounce For Onion Waffle

Flipping the menu on its own was a joy; we enjoyed browsing through their alternative selections while admiring the amazing photos.

Roast The Commons

Roast Bangkok Brunch


Roast, our favourite cafe in Bangkok, has relocated from its previous location at SeenSpace. It is no stranger to the cafe scene, and it is perpetually packed with brunch-goers.

Roast BKK

Its new space at The Commons is nothing short of cosy too. Expect the usual fare – brunch items, a la minute desserts, great coffee, friendly staff, laid back vibes.

Established in July 2013, Rocket Coffee Bar started as a hole-in-the-wall joint at Sathorn Soi 12, and the rest as they say is history. It has since expanded to other parts of the city, including this largest outlet on Sukhumvit Soi 49.

Rocket Coffee

Rocket Coffee Bar is undoubtedly one of the most stylish coffee shops in Bangkok. The combination of good coffee, free wifi, simple and earnest wholesome food such as sandwiches, salads, and breakfast make Rocket Coffee Bar a place where we will always return to. And so will you after you’ve checked them out.

The Garden of Dinsor

The Garden of Dinsor Palace


This place has swans! ‘Nuff said, right?

The Garden of Dinsor Palace does not have an exceptional menu, neither does the food taste out of the world. But where else can you dine with swans? Well, sort of. And there are peacocks roaming around the compound too!

Toby's Sukhumvit Cafe

Toby's Cafe French Toast


Sukhumvit has no lack of cafes, but for somewhere with relaxing vibes and reliable food, go to Toby’s on Sukhumvit. The Aussie-style cafe offers good brew and a menu of interesting brunch items.

While we love our avocado toasts, this fairy floss brioche deserves all the attention. That pink floss kind of reminded us of Karlito – you know, that renown Fendi bag charm – but this edible beauty instantly lifted our spirits. And the brioche is pillowy soft with a buttery aftertaste. So worth every damn calorie!
