The buzz: Renowned Thai designer Noppadol “Ou” Baholyodhin (currently Jim Thompson’s creative director) has channeled his thirst for good coffee and eye for style into creating On Nut’s most photogenic cafe.
 
The decor: Not just another minimalist cafe with white walls and blond wood, Magpie lives up to its owner’s design expertise. Kelly Wearstler and Jonathan Adler would approve of the space’s terrazzo floors and mid-century furniture pieces upholstered in velvet or bold, graphic prints. The garden theming on the ground floor is so green and clean it refreshes both your eyes and soul, from dangling ferns and leaf prints to the window-lined walls overlooking the terrace. A lively mezzanine conjures a more
loungey atmosphere, thanks to a long, continuous yellow sofa.
 
The food: To complement the friendly atmosphere, the kitchen rolls out all-day-dining comfort food. They’re confident about their pies, which feature a crispy crust encasing fillings like chicken with Hokkaido butter and Sapporo beer-marinated beef (B175 each). On top of classics like spaghetti carbonara (B195), their pasta section also contains specials like the khao soy pasta (B195) on a rotating basis. Other items include sandwiches, salads and soups (from B165). Desserts are all made in house, including banoffee pie and tarte tatin (B125 each).
 
The drinks: Coffee beans are from Chiang Mai roasters Pacamara (espresso from B75) while there are also smoothies (B110-120) and a selection of tea and herbal tea (B95/pot), including the cafe’s aromatic house blend of peppermint, raspberry and delphinium flower. On the booze side, cocktails set you back B195 and wine from B125/glass.
 
Why you should care: This is the future of On Nut. A super stylish cafe is the sign of the 'hood being on the up.
