This little café hidden in the Bangkok Art & Culture Center (BACC) is a throwback to the old Thai traditional coffee places.

How does it look like?

It doesn’t look great but there is an undeniable charm about this place. A little cocoon of the old days, a simple café with wooden benches and chairs and effortlessly putting together furniture. You can come here for a cup of coffee, nibble on some homemade snacks or purchase an old amulet or a vintage looking iPhone case.

How do they treat you?

The owner is quite friendly, his wife a little less. But it’s a good enough service for a place of that caliber.

How is the coffee?

My perennial ice latte was good but I expected some milk foam on top of it.

How much?

50 to 60 bahts for a cup of coffee. You can also purchase some souvenirs or Thai snacks

Verdict!

It is a cute place to hang out for a short time with friends before or after visiting the exhibitions of BACC.
