Say Bangkok and people would think of shopping. Don’t deny – most of you are always packed with adrenaline rush to conquer as many streets and malls as possible. But there really is much more the Land of Smiles has to offer.
While you may not think of Bangkok as a destination for a slow and quiet life, it is actually very rewarding to take a little escape from the hubbubs of the bustling city and to simply indulge in spacing out at a quaint cafe. Bangkok has surprised us with its offer of cafe options – from understated ones to elaborate thematic joints. Now, all you need is a good read or a comfortable company, and indulge in losing yourself in time.

$2 scrambled eggs in a cafe, nestled snugly in the city? I am talking about Black Coffee Dessert Bar at TripleOne Somerset. Well, not only does Black Coffee cafe have an all day breakfast menu, it also offers a wide selection of drinks like beers and smoothies besides coffee!
