Hi Loves, how are you? Yes, I know, I have been MIA since October. It’s just that, there are many things that happened in my life— I applied for a permanent position in another government agency and luckily, I was accepted so I have been really busy adjusting, juggling demands, and facing the challenges of a new environment.
If you follow me on Instagram, I’m sure you know that I went to Bangkok and Siem Reap last December for our annual vacay. I like this particular trip because it’s really the definition of what a “vacation” should be: it was super chill and we just did shopping, café hunting, eating, and taking good photos.
So speaking of café hunting, I decided to start my 2019 blog featuring the must visit cafes in Bangkok. For me, Bangkok is not just about pad thai, street foods, and Thai milk tea. I also fell in love with their cafes.
So here are six cafes in Bangkok that you shouldn’t miss:
Blue Whale Café
I like all things cute or IG-worthy. This is maybe the reason why I enjoyed this three-storeys café near the Wat Pho Temple. I mean if your favorite color is blue, you would definitely love this place. Just by looking at the pics above, you can already see how cute this café is plus their Butterfly Pea Latte (as seen above) tasted as good as their interiors (Location: 392, 37 Maha Rat Rd, Khwaeng Phra Borom Maha Ratchawang, Khet Phra Nakhon, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, Thailand)
Elefin is located near Blue Whale Café. Before visiting Wat Pho, we passed by this café to have a quick breakfast. Since I was still doing Intermittent Fasting that time, I just ordered their cold brew coffee. I liked that the taste of their cold brew is not too strong compared to those offered by other cafes that taste too bitter. I actually wanted to bring home the bottle as souvenir but I was afraid to be rejected that time so I didn’t bother to ask. (Location: Maha Rat Rd, Khwaeng Phra Borom Maha Ratchawang, Khet Phra Nakhon, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, Thailand)
Tales Khaosan is a café and hostel in one located, of course, in Khaosan Road. It’s a small café suitable for an intimate convo with your friends. If you’ll visit Tales Khaosan, make sure to try their Apple Cold Brew. I swear, it’s so good! I even asked my friend who is not a coffee drinker to try their cold brew and she likes it. (Location: 88 Chakrabongse Rd, Khwaeng Talat Yot, Khet Phra Nakhon, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, Thailand)
Shugaa for me is more of a dessert bar than a café. But well, they offered coffee so it must be a café right? 😊 I learned about Shugaa in Booky App when I searched for the best ig-worthy cafes in Bangkok. This place is really cute! Other customers aside from us were also posing and taking pictures inside and outside the place. (Location: 27 The Residence at 61 Bldg 61 Sukhumvit 61 Alley, แขว คลองตันเหนือ Watthana, Bangkok, Thailand)
If you search Google, you’ll see that this café is highly recommended by 600+ customers. Too bad, we went here very quick and at nighttime just to have our coffee fix. We weren’t able to try their brunch meals which is what they are known for. But at least I got to enjoy their Jaffa Cold Brew (as seen above). It’s a cold brew combined with dark chocolate and orange foam. (Location: 149 Sathon Soi 12, Khwaeng Silom, Khet Bang Rak, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, Thailand)
Not Just Another Cup
Not Just Another Cup is another top-rated cafe in Bangkok. It’s just a little bit expensive compared to the coffee shops above. When we went here, the staff even asked us if we have reservations which of course, we didn’t have. In fairness, they were kind enough to let us stay to have our coffee. I don’t recommend their Golden Latte because it tasted like curry (but maybe you’ll like it?) but I loved their Sea Salt Caramel Latte. (Location: 75/1 Sathon Soi 10, Khwaeng Silom, Khet Bang Rak, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, Thailand)
That’s it! I will see you all next time Loves! Again, don’t forget to follow @loveexplores on FB and IG!
