Between its great atmosphere and comfy seating, Goodfellas Cafe and Hostel will have you parking it for hours. There is plenty of seating throughout the café and restaurant to choose from, from lush couches to metal bar stools. The atmosphere is created by a mixture of cool décor, from greenery that graces hanging, black lamps to vibrant plush pillows, giving the restaurant a pop of color. The staff are friendly and welcoming, and the coffee is downright addictive. Those who frequent will have trouble ordering just one of their coffees, which are seemingly not that expensive in comparison to other cafés in the area. Coffee prices start out at as little as ฿50. Whether you are looking for a place to sit and hang out with fellow travelers or a quiet corner to catch up online, this is the cafe to visit.

This isn’t Greyhound Cafe’s first rodeo. This café first opened its doors in 1980, and has been a great place to eat and drink ever since. The cafe became so popular, in fact, that it now has a total of 12 locations with several international cafés located in Hong Kong. Its menu has a wide array of both International and Thai cuisine, vegetarian options, and more. The serving sizes are large as well, ensuring all restaurant-goers leave with a full stomach.

The Roast

The Roast in Bangkok has two locations. One is off the BTS Skytrain station Phrom Phong, but we prefer the location at Thonglor because it is located inside of The Commons. This open-air mall is the city’s newest spot to hang out, get some work done, or enjoy a variety of delicious cuisine and mouthwatering drink combinations. That is where The Roast comes in. The Roast has it all, from eggs Benedict to chocolate soufflé. Their wide variety of cuisine in addition to their well-priced coffee makes it a great place to head for a meal or cup of coffee (or two).

Roots Coffee Roaster creates all of its delicious javas with one thing in mind: putting Thailand on the coffee map. Its sleek décor is equipped with a few seats at its stylish, wooden bar; however, like The Roast, it is located within The Commons, which also has ample tables and chairs both indoors and outdoors for avid coffee drinkers to utilize. The Commons is a great location to frequent, whether you are hoping for a delicious cup of coffee or want to chow down on, let’s say, Mexican cuisine. One of our favorite picks is Roots Coffee Roaster, however. Regardless of your preference, this cafe has the brew for you. Roots Coffee Roaster also sources the best coffee beans from around the world and brews them to perfection for customers’ enjoyment. Their coffee creations are unique, with menu items including the coconut cold brew, Tanzania espresso, and cocoa nibs, just to name a few.

Coffee connoisseurs need to make their way to Casa Lapin in Thonglor. Many coffees served throughout Thailand are sugary, condensed milk concoctions that tend to leave coffee lovers unsatisfied. This is not the case at Casa Lapin, the perfect café to begin your day at. The cafe’s shiny new espresso machine continues to keep customers satisfied. In addition to its class coffee, Casa Lapin serves up a wide variety of drinks and baked goods, for example, a marmalade chocolate nougat. Casa Lapin has eight different branches across the city to choose from, as well.

Sit and Wonder is an open concept café conveniently located right off the BTS Skytrain station Thonglor, making it an easy destination for travelers to hit up on their search for the best cafes in town. It is here that customers can sit and wonder, all the while refueling on some of the most delicious coffee. The café is decorated with black and white photos of the city. Otherwise, the décor is simple and chic, with concrete floors and wooden seating in the small, quaint café.
