Feeling like wearing pearls and being elegant? Indulge yourself at Petite Audrey in Siam Center. A charming place but worthy of Miss Hepburn’s name?

How does it look like?
This place is as charming as its name. Petite Audrey, referencing the elegant Audrey Hepburn, would be the perfect place for the American actress if she came to Bangkok (and was still among us). The décor is very New York with a touch of French salon de thé chic.

How do they treat you?
The staff was polite but didn’t really understand our order. There were a lot of people behind the counter and in the room but the cutely dressed waitresses didn’t come to help the seemingly overwhelmed waiters (even though there were not many people in the café). There was a promotion “Buy one beverage, get one free”, and as much as our waiter wanted to explain it to you it has been difficult for him to tell us about it (in English or in Thai). We ended up by ordering two drinks each and they arrived at the same time, which was a bit surprising as one of the order was supposed to be hot and wasn’t naturally few minutes later.

How is the food?
Even though the coffee was delivered unexpectedly as previously mentioned, it was satisfying in its taste. My nutella cake slice went through its own journey, not being brought to the table, though ordered with the beverages. Our confused waiter wasn’t really helpful. But after a second attempt, we have finally been able to try it out. Though the portion was quite small, the taste was worth the wait. The nutella flavor came across perfectly without being too rich.

How much?
Drinks are around 100 bahts (for coffee), 150 for smoothies and other mixures. The cakes are around 130 bahts.

Verdict!
It would have been a better experience with a better service but the décor and the food did help me forget the little hiccups.  I’m hopeful that this can be a great hang out with friends in a cute atmosphere, perfect for the ladies who lunch and splurge in some unforgivingly rich pastries.
