12 Bangkok coffee shops that look so cool you'll never want to leave

These designer cafes look (almost) as good as the coffee tastes. (In no particular order.)

  • 12 Bangkok coffee shops that look so cool you'll never want to leave

1. Rocket

Sathorn Soi 12's original hip hangout still looks like it was built on a bigger budget than just about everywhere that's followed it.  

2. Luka

Fortunately, Casa Pagoda's more, umm, challenging pieces of furniture (lifesize bronze labrador, anyone?) was kept in the showroom, letting this adjoining cafe speak with muted, rustic-contemporary charm. 

3. Ink & Lion

We were so in love with some of the pieces in here that we had to ask the owner where he got them. The chairs? Japan. The desks? Japan. The tables? Ja... we get the picture.


4. Gallery Drip

The recent refurb has cleaned up the rustic clutter. Now, if only we could get a seat.

5. Casa Lapin x49

Yeah, we know, the Suk 49 branch doesn't really look like this any more. But we wish it still did. 


6. Kaizen

No hanging bulbs? No ruggedly-hewn countertop? Not even a collection of quaint tabletop terrariums? What kind of coffee shop is this? 


7. Roots

Ahhhh, now that'more like it!


8. One Ounce for Onion

The skinny teak picture frames. The Tolix chairs. Those perfectly muted military surplus colors. Excuse us while we go have some alone time. (The new Aree branch isn't so bad, either.)

9. Toby’s

For those who like their slow drip with a blond, Scandinavian (or is it Australian?) vibe. 


10. Hands and Heart

This one's said to be styled after an art museum in rural Japan: black and white marble, and a monochrome theme that extends to the menu (charcoal croissant, anyone?).


11. D’Ark

If only everything at this oversized, crisp white coffee shop lived up to the latte.


12. Sora City

This low-ceilinged, blond wood hidey-hole looks like something straight out of Japan, while the retro bikes will cost you well over the return flight to Tokyo.
