The fine folk behind popular café and hipster haunt Casa Lapin (Sukhumvit Soi 49 [opposite Samitivej Hospital], 081-257-7920. Open daily 7:30am-9:30pm) have expanded beyond the rabbit-hole original branch to now serve up a good cup of joe in a larger, even more lovely, venue. The brains behind this new hidden café’s Brooklyn-evoking industrial décor is Be Grey (whose previous work includes Karmakamet and In the Mood for Love). The result is a gorgeous and thoughtful place well worth a visit, from the chic daybed out front to the lofty ceiling inside. As in the original branch, the real highlight is the coffee (from B85)—choose from espresso machine, drip or French press expertly made by Surapan Tanta. Enjoy your cup with bakery treats from Brooklyn Baker (Soi Polo) and Pojwaree Lertsutthichawan, who whips up some scrumptious croissants. Expect more sandwich options and another branch in Ari soon.
