A vegan cafe, fabric studio, and co-working space all in one.
Kappra (which translates to fabric in Hindi) is a new addition to the plant-based community, offering a vivid take on vegan fare and a few extras that go beyond your average soy milk lattes.
Situated opposite Ratchawong Pier, around the corner from Lhong 1919, this cafe is more than it seems at surface level. Doubling as a textile studio, Kappra embodies the community’s legacy as a fabric hub and highlights the founders’ own history in the trade.
On the second floor, you’ll find a gorgeous fabric studio draped in luxurious vegan fabrics like satin crepe. This space also houses a collection of fabric books, allowing visitors to browse and buy their favorites.
Most, however, will come for drinks like their Latte En Rose (B125), which tastes like a Turkish delight in a cup; the vegan dirty (B150), an espresso shot poured over plant-based milk; or the Kappra Chai (B85), made from a secret family recipe.
On the food menu, they offer a range of flavorful and wellness-focused vegan dishes. Think acai bowls are named after their fabrics, such as their Angel bowl (B285), chai-spiced granola topped with seasonal fruits and edible flowers; luscious sea salt brownies (B85); and savory bites like tofu teriyaki (B185) and masala “supreme” cream (B145), which offers a dash of chaat spice blend on your sourdough.
The cafe plans to offer fashion and educational workshops in the future. In the meanwhile, it’s open for artists to use the space for creative activities, like painting, designing clothes, and photography. The ambitious project also boasts a rose gold- and white-hued co-working space.
Kappra Cafe’s soft launch menu is currently available for delivery via Line or Instagram (@kappracafe).
