After what seemed like a never-ending rainy season, the first holiday breezes have finally arrived in Bangkok. With a fresh month upon us and lots of festivities in the air, there’s probably no better way to fully enjoy some sugary wonders than in any one of the city’s new cafes. From matcha-infused delights to colourful drinks served in neon-lit surroundings, here are the best of the bunch to get you jumping into November with some flavourful fun.
Disjarus Craft and Cafe
Ever wondered what it’d be like to dine in a doll house? Disjarus Craft and Cafe is just the ticket. With lavish vintage decorations and a dreamy pink palette, the cafe lets you savour sweet delights in a romantic, princess-like setting. The dishes here are also beautifully prepared and served on elegant porcelain plates; think a lemon cake (THB 195) with fruity dressings and red velvet Madeleine with strawberry sorbet ice cream (THB 180). Alongside a selection of British fermented teas, you’ll also love the signature rose-infused latte (THB 150).
If you’re seeking a cute spot for some sugar highs, treat yourself to Cotton Clouds, a cafe that serves up all things sweet and colourful. Definitely dive into its rainbow-coloured drinks with candy toppings (THB 115) and frozen milkshake that will make your heart melt with all of its caramel popcorn flavours (THB 130). With a whirlwind of cotton clouds hanging from the ceiling and pink neon lights illuminating the space, not only does this cafe offer cheat-day treats, but also picture-perfect shots for your Instagram.
For anyone who’d rather enjoy afternoon treats in a relaxing, rustic vibe, Poet House can do the trick without even having to leave the city. Tucked away in Soi Ari, the cafe is warm and welcoming with wooden accents and country-style furnishings. The menu here includes everything from fusion dishes to delectable drinks. Make sure you try its spaghetti with shrimps coated in Thai herbs (THB 135) and wash your meals down with some maple Earl Grey tea (THB 120) or rose lynchee soda (THB 100). Housed in a snug shack, it’s also the homey vibes surrounding this cafe that make everything extra special.
A newly must-try café for matcha lovers, Chaho Cafe dishes up all manner of green teas, from aromatic brews to matcha-infused desserts. Order the signature izumo no makashi (THB 300) or iri genmaicha (THB 85) to enjoy premium green tea extracts. For alternative blends, you can opt for its unique fusions of matcha tea and Nutella chocolate (THB 160). Another highlight is the hojicha ice cream (THB 85) and matcha fondue (THB 259) served with fresh fruits. Standing tall in the Bangrak neighbourhood, this cafe boasts a two-storey house with clean and wood-based architecture which lends an amazingly peaceful atmosphere.
A cafe by day and a bar by night, Space Oddity is a trendy, all-inclusive spot in Seenspace Thonglor, where you can spend a relaxing afternoon sipping a serious cup of espresso (THB 125) and jazz things up in the evening with an ice-cold crafted beer. Of course, it also provides some pastries for your sweet tooth, such as carrot cake (THB 110). With its lifestyle concept and urban-chic design, a co-working zone is available within the space to satiate young entrepreneurs with good food and comforts, too.
