The Best Cafés in Bangkok are catching up with their global counterparts and pouring smooth, strong espresso drinks and cold-brew coffees in dreamy settings.
Gone are the days when coffee in Bangkok inevitably meant scorched beans served with condensed milk and loads of sugar. The new generation of cafés features single origin beans, powerful espresso machines, and lovingly crafted flat whites, macchiatos, and cortados that could give Seattle’s baristas a run for their money. Here are some of the best places to sip a perfectly balanced cappuccino with a bite of something sweet.
Need caffeine? Discover Rocket Coffee at the Siwilai Social Club/Central Embassy. Their coffee is high quality 100% Arabica which is blended between 50% THAILAND and 50% BRAZIL. Go and get a sip!
Initially launched by architect Surapan Tanta, who claimed he couldn’t find a decent cup of Joe in Bangkok, this third-wave coffee shop has become one of the most respected in town. While the original location is somewhat cramped, this newer branch offers ample space to sprawl in its handsome wooden interior. Though the food is unremarkable, the sultry espresso is faultless and the staff are always friendly. As a bonus, this spot is connected to an upscale flashpacker hostel and a hip coworking space. After the café closes at 10 p.m., head out the back to The Taproom for a vast selection of craft beers and occasional live music.
Located in trendy Chinatown, this bright, airy café practically begs guests to linger over a leisurely cup of coffee made from beans specially sourced from a Chiang Mai roaster. The menu of classic brunch comfort food is heavily inspired by the 15 years that chef Phunchita Kamonto spent living in Melbourne, where she picked up a fondness for crisp avocado toast smothered in avocado. Other specialties include: the skillet pancake, a powdered sugar-dusted Dutch baby served piping hot in a cast iron pan; and creamy polenta topped with poached pear, sautéed mushrooms, and spicy chorizo.
Set in a gorgeous, light-filled space by the same Japanese architectural firm that masterminded the Google and YouTube headquarters in Tokyo, Open House quickly became one of the trendiest places in town for young professionals. Officially dubbed a “co-living space,” the eight-zone area features a coworking area with fabulous coffee, a bookshop with more than 20,000 rare art books, and a gallery featuring local and international artists. Diners can choose from pizza at Peppina, Thai dishes at Lady Nara, sushi at Muteki by Mugendai, vegan goodies at Broccoli Revolution, and Taiwanese favourites at Bao & Buns.
