Bangkok Foodie: Too fast to sleep, MRT Sam Yan

Too fast to sleep, located near Chulalongkorn University, is a 24h opened café, perfect for students to bury their head in their books.


How does it look like?
The place looks as if you were entering a magic land. The flying books fixtures make for a fun and studious atmosphere. The whole café is an open space with desks, tables, sofas or coffee tables to give you the choice of your writing support. And there is free wifi!


How do they treat you?
I went there at mid-day, the place was half full but even though three staffs were there, it seems that they didn’t really care about the customers.


How is the food?
My (scorching) hot latte was decent, even though I had to wait 10 minutes to be able to drink it, but the chocolate crepe was very cold and as a consequence the cream was hard and the few bites I had way too sweet and stodgy.
I haven’t tried any of their Japanese/thai/Italian fusion food. So let’s hope it’s better to help the students to make their brain function through the night.


How much?
You can check the menu here.
Most of the food and drinks are around a hundred bahts.


It is great when you are a student and want to have a group study in a cool atmosphere but I guess that at my age, I expect a better service.
