Bean & Us

Forget the coffee craze: here comes a soy milk café with the requisite hipster decor. Bean & Us claims their recipe is positively ancient, passed down from their parents who sold soy milk for three decades. Choose from regular soy milk (B45), the hot chocolate version, or desserts like the soy milk ice cream (B65). The café, which features black steel panels and pale wooden furniture, is already proving popular among bike riders in the area.

The Bread Wishes

The online bakery Bread Wishes specializes in bread prepared for those who are allergic to what’s often referred to as the “big eight:” milk, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat and soybean. Everything here is made with wild yeast, with no chemicals added, using mostly organic ingredients. The recommended items are earl gray cranberry buns (B45), white sandwich bread (B300) and the organic pasta (B200, check availability on Facebook). 


Nestled in Sukhumvit Soi 42, Theera serves up a regularly rotating range of baked treats that are guaranteed to be gluten-free, dairy-free and nut-free. Alongside a mouthwatering gingerbread cake with homemade granola (B150) or a brownie banoffee and milk crumbs (B100), you’ll also find a menu of smoothies which use soy milk and coconut yoghurt instead of dairy products. Breakfast dishes are also a big draw, with such delights as whole-wheat soy buttermilk waffle (B180).
Sukhumvit Soi 42, 090-506-2222. Open Mon-Fri 8am-6pm; Sat 10:30am-6pm.


Owned by a few vegan activists, Veganerie is very strict about using dairy-free and egg-free products. And you know what? It’s still darn good, particularly the carrot cake (B85 or B450 for a pound) or chocolate chip soft baked cookie (B45), and they use less sugar to boot. Gluten-free products, such as the strawberry and kiwi shortcake, are also available. Order online or find out when they’ll next be at the Bangkok’s Farmer Market.


You’ll have to wait another two months for this ice cream parlor, which is already popular from its stall at the Bangkok Farmer’s Markets, to open its first branch in Rama 4 (Mahasin Apt., across Lotus) and bring us a more regular fix of its delicious non-dairy ice cream. They’ll also be rolling out new flavors like tropical mango and berries.
