Elefin Coffee (Wat Pho)

One of Bangkok's coffee roaster pioneers opens up near the riverside.

A stone's throw from the reclining Buddha at Wat Pho, this charming Thai cafe is all about local beans, serving only 100-percent arabica sourced from Chiang Rai, which they roast themselves right here in the café. The coffee menu is short as they brew only from an espresso machine, but you can still enjoy a classic cup of coffee. 

Elefin coffee roaster marks 10 years of operations by opening a third branch opposite Wat Pho down by the riverside in the Old Town. 

Like previous venues at Museum Siam (Old Town) and Hansar Hotel (Ratchadamri), the cafe sources its coffee beans from Doi Chang, Chiang Rai, and works with Seattle’s Lighthouse Roastery to achieve the perfect roast. 

An espresso starts at B60 while a bottle of cold brew is B100. The cafe also serves breakfast sets (B90-185), Thai snacks (B105-140), soups (B105-125), salads (B125-140), noodles (B95-160) and rice dishes (B105-140), as well as a few Western options.

Owner Suzanne Vetillart Chayavichitsilp also opens the place for workshops. Email [email protected] to book your place.
