Timo & Tintin
This Talad Noi cafe has a lot more to offer than just coffee.
Occupying a multi-floor shophouse near the Phanurangsi Pier, this handsome Talad Noi cafe stands out from the auto parts stores and temples in the neighborhood.
Named after the owner’s dogs and decked out in artwork from apr/s, from the photo-baiting front window decals to the typography the brand employs, Timo & Tintin is drawing coffee snobs and Instagram crowds alike.
Currently, they’re coming for the high-quality coffee, a nutty house blend made with beans from Ethiopia, Chiang Mai, and Lampang (americano from B80, latte from B110, dirty coffee and black yuzu from B130). Others come for the uji matcha from Kyoto (matcha latte and matcha yuzu soda B120 each); the awesome, powdered sugar-dusted almond croissants (B95); or the signature Brookie, a brownie meets chocolate chip cookie (B85). But the cafe has grand ambitions.
The first two floors are devoted to the cafe, but the third and fourth floors function as parquet-floored gallery space. Here, you can check out work from popular Thai artists like Suntur, Gongkan, and Dilok Lak. Above these floors, the rooftop offers excellent views of the Chao Phraya River. There are plans to make the most of those views and turn this space into a bar primed for sundowners soon, too.
