27 The Residence at 61 Bldg 61
Sukhumvit 61 Alley, แขว คลองตันเหนือ
Khet Watthana, Krung Thep Maha
We’ve all been to that one cafe. Everything looks good. The interior and exterior of the cafe look like it came straight out of a dream. But everything comes crashing down once you taste the food. It doesn’t live up to the hype that was building up. Everything tastes too sweet, too salty, just too much of everything. I wonder if there is a cafe that looks both aesthetically pleasing and serves good food…

Well, wonder no more, as Shugaa fulfils all the above! Not only does both it’s exterior and interior design look minimalistic and polished, but the food it serves is also super Instagrammable and tasty to eat as well! It is no wonder it has been recommended dozens of times by other food bloggers and reviewers.
Known for their creative desserts made from pastel coloured frosted icing, people with a sweet tooth should definitely come check this cafe out. They are constantly coming up with new ideas that keep the crowd coming back for more. For instance, they are now making exclusive We Bare Bears theme cakes and desserts, so definitely check them out!

#2 Roast Coffee
Unit #T1 (Roast), The COMMONS
335 Thonglor Soi 17, Sukhumvit 55 Klongton Nua Wattana Bangkok 10110, Thailand
Next up on this list is Roast Coffee, which specializes in, you guessed it, coffee. Located at The Commons, which is an entire building dedicated to food outlets and cafes, this cafe specializes in breakfast style meals, such as French Toast and DIY Espresso. The cafe gives off a wooden and rustic vibe, which is sure to please all you minimalists out there.

What is DIY Espresso, you may ask? Well, DIY Espresso is served with a glass full of milk alongside a cup filled with espresso ice cubes. It’s DIY since you pour the milk over the espresso ice cubes yourself in order to make your drink. Now isn’t that Instagram-worthy?
The coffee served here at Roast Coffee is prepared just like how the Thai like to have their coffee; light and not too acidic.

If you’re looking for something to eat, we strongly recommend the Strawberry Waffles Set. Topped with Freshly Cut Strawberries, Light Whipped Cream and served with a scoop of Ice Cream, it is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Treat your tastebuds to a magical experience as you savour it in bite-sized chunks.

#3 After You Dessert Cafe
Next up on the list, you’ve probably head before. They have a jaw-dropping 72 outlets in total, and you will soon realise why. They specialise in serving desserts such as Shaved Ice along with Speciality Toasts, mixing fruits in with their desserts whenever possible to give it that refreshing taste.
All of these come at a price though, as the waiting lines to get seated in this cafe are usually long and you would need to queue to get a ticket number. However, rest assured that the long wait will all be worth it once you sit down and indulge in their desserts.

One of their must-try desserts includes the Shaved Ice topped with Whipped Cream and Ice Cream, depending on what you order. What you see above is their famous Mango Sticky Rice Shaved Cream Dessert, which is served alongside the Coconut Milk you are used to having with your Mango Sticky Rice.
Be sure to give it a try when you are in Bangkok as it is a famous Thai delicacy that has been transformed into something even better. Who knew Mango Sticky Rice would taste this good when in the formed of shaved ice?

Another must-try dessert when you visit After You Cafe is their French Toast. The French Toast comes in many different variations, but we felt the best tasting one so far was the one topped with Strawberry and Whipped Cream. To top it all off, there was a slight drizzle of Chocolate Sauce and a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream on the side.
The loaf of bread was perfectly toasted and there was just the right amount of butter put into it, giving it a perfect golden brown appearance.
Since there are so many outlets scattered all over Thailand, be sure to check which is the closest to where you are to maximise your time. Also, be prepared to queue, so you may choose to get a ticket and continue shopping first! (might as well burn off the extra calories you’re about to intake!!)

One of the desserts Audrey Cafe and Bistro is famous for is their Thai Milk Tea Crepe Cake. Topped off with Cha-Yen for that extra sweetness! The sweet flavour of the sauce complements the light and fluffy nature of the Crepe Cake perfectly, making it the perfect Thai inspired dessert.
